ISSA PATIII

POST

The June holidays came as a blessing after weeks of submissions, exam preparations and, finally, writing the long-awaited exams that one has had cold sleepless nights for. Waking up for the last exam, one obviously has to think about nothing but finishing the exam. Afterwards, one has to concern oneself with how to celebrate finishing one’s exams and, after the celebrations, how one is going to make good use of the month that is given to freshen  up in preparation for tackling the workload that comes with the second semester. Not forgetting that one will miss the Varsity vibes, the Wi-Fi, the buddies that chill with you on the library lawns during break but most especially the weekday Kara Nicha’s specials.

It is very funny how when you are in Varsity you always have money; that’s if you know how save or use money wisely but when you get home you are super. You cannot even buy airtime over R30 and even if you buy that 200MB bundle it will be gone in “ like 2.1 seconds” just like how Bonang Matheba changes her moods.  Thanks to our “ loyal” service providers they don’t just want our money , they sometimes put themselves in our shoes . If you are on Vodacom you will understand what I am on about, yes that Facebook free mode that lets you login to Facebook free of charge but you cannot view any pictures which are posted.

Speaking of Facebook- this reminds me of the hilarious yet creative trends that cooked up a storm of laughs. Starting with the naughty trend; if you have been up and about, you will remember the inseparable  peach emoji which looks like butt  and the eggplant emoji  used to represent male genitalia. A combo that has taken up way before winter introduced itself. These emojis have been trusted to save time and make the message clear as the spirit of lust takes over. I’m sure that they will still be making waves on our interwebs years to come. Now onto the creative side of things; plastics and packaging of various products, including condoms, have turned the fashion industry upside down. People have replaced clothes with these seemingly useless props and turned them into a fashion statement. Plastic has been used to create crop tops, head wraps, skirts, earrings and various other accessories. I guess this is a good way of making use of what has been known as rubbish which pollutes the earth. Pollution is one of the major problems facing our country. With this trend, we are able to see recycling as being both creative and eco-friendly. I hope that fashion designers recognise the new trend because I would like to wear an outfit designed from plastic and, thus, become part of this great initiative.

Ask me about the National Patii songs and I will be able to create a playlist that will last for quite a few days. Starting with Nigerian songs which have made a name for themselves in our local clubs. I’m talking about Davido’s If and the recent Fall which have taken the youth’s playlist by storm. Not forgetting Pana by Tekno, you cannot argue that these African jams have not made an impact on the charts. And the recent kasi songs that will get you of that chair and even remind you of home like Memeza  Gqom by Benny Maverick which when translated to English means “shout” can be called a song of activisim yet hearing that one word “hayi” will get your touching your body like you have been stung by bees . Then we have Ko Mkokotlong by Biblos ft. Fiesta Black which will leave you hitting your back as if you have unbearable pain. However, you cannot publically respond to what the song asks you “Oe batla kae/Ko Mkokotlong” (“Where do you Want it?/ On my back?” ) . As to what the song refers to- it really does not matter ;-). Whether these songs will still be flaming in summer only time will tell.

Become active on social media and you will never get bored of or miss out on any important updates like news, parties, performances and even exhibitions. With a wide range of funny pages such as Wits Crush and Wits Confessions you can never go wrong . As the first week of the second semester passes, I just hope we will all make it out alive because the struggle is real.
