#137. Read Andy Davis’ review of District 9 “Prawn Again” on Mahala, my current most favourite local website. Mahala means for free and that’s just what the content is, for nothing and on anything. The brainchild of Davis, a former magazine editor (SL) the site is smart and sharp, fresh and visual and carries some of the best and most current thinking and writing on South African art, music, photography and movies. Oh, and it also covers sport and surfing.
Says Davis when I asked: “I have always believed there is a space for an unrestricted South African youth magazine that speaks to an audience of integrated, intelligent, creative South African males & females.” I am on his side.
Mahala’s reason for being and its credo is: “Mahala is a free South African mouthpiece that strives to report and represent what’s really happening along the fault line and in the trenches of South African culture … We’ll always be free, gratis and Mahala. Because you deserve quality information, opinion and entertainment for free!”
And you do. So go on.
