My City: Durban, South Africa with Muzi

||||||||||||

This week's My City brings us to the cultural hub of Durban, South Africa. Our guide? Durban born producer Muzi, who has picked up massive support from The Prodigy and Diplo's label Mad Decent.

His mix of electronica and hip-hop with the influx of Zulu vocals make for an exciting mix perfect for the South African audience. A man with more talents than one, Muzi has his own fashion label called FRESHER.THAN.YOUR.IDOL whose creations stem from traditional and modern art adorned to customised Vans, jackets and tie dye tees.

Where’s the first place you visit when you return home from abroad?

I've never been out of the country but I'd probably hit this dope spot in Umbilo (south of Durban) called Delish where they sell the best steakrolls EVER. Then probably head to my hometown of Empangeni after that dope meal.

 Where’s the best place for a first date?

The beach, because it's free!

Where’s your preferred place to chill and clear your head? 

Again, the beach. There's something really soothing about the sound ocean waves make - pretty sick.

Where’s your favourite place to party?

I don't party much but The Origin is dope. Electronic music all the way!!!

Where’s your favourite place to have a quiet drink?

I don't drink. Does a bubblegum milkshake count? If so, milkshake/ice cream bars are my favourite.

How would you describe your city’s style?

Very laid back, very chilled. I think the ocean's to blame.

 Where are your favourite places to shop?

I thrift shop a lot. Here most thrift shops aren't shops at all but piles of clothes on the sidewalks with people yelling how much the clothes are.

Do you have a fact about your city not a lot of people know?

It's the dopest city in South Africa!

What song sums up your city?

Damn that's a hard one. There are so many different, rich cultures here - one song wouldn't do it justice. (Well, who better than the man himself!)
