Joburg is seriously becoming the capital of cool. Its great to see more brands getting involved in inner city Jozi. First it was Adidas with their Area 3 gallery in Maboneng, then Puma with the Puma Social Club pop up club in Braamies. Now its Sprite, who’ve teamed up with music culture mag FADER to make this sweet little video about Braamfontien, one of my favourite hoods in downtown Joburg.
The vid is directed by Adriaan Louw for We-Are-Awesome and features music by my favourite Jozi bands, The Brother Moves On and Motel Mari. It’s part of a series of documentary videos showcasing the arts coming out of South Africa. Can’t wait to see the rest of them.
Just to show you how much I love Braamfontein, heres some fun pics of me and my mates jumping one of my fave Jozi venues, the Randlords rooftop.
Ke nako Jozi. Its time.
