Backyard Group hosted guests at 285 Ashden Road, Mondeor for the annual Back Yard House Party on January 25, 2020. Their motto, "make noise, not friends" was a leading principle and best scene as people engaged every performing artist regardless of their relationships with others in the crowd.

my first day in Limpopo #playYourPart (Part 1)

December 2019 brought rain galore making Johannesburg wet and lush. But in all honesty, sometimes this kind of weather can trigger negative thoughts and cause flare-ups with your depression. So when I got the email requesting my presence in Limpopo for the Play Your Part campaign, I couldn't be happier.

I Was Not Happy When I Wrote This, #misaNarrates

I have been overwhelmed, unhappy, and swimming in dark waters. In this time, I've committed more to the growth of M3NA Media, albeit in a less than ideal headspace. However, I have been able to pen the occassional poem where all of this started, Twitter; your favorite bird app!

Afro Diva & Misa Narrates’s First Vlog

Living in Johannesburg means I don’t get to see my family nearly as much as I would like. As such, it’s always a treat when my mother comes to town! Over the past month, people have been curious about the relationship I have with my mom, particularly where social media is involved. My thinking is that if I show you, it’ll make a little more sense. For this reason, I’d
