A Look Inside Scoop Makhathini’s Colourful Street Style

We take a look at Scoop Makhathini’s fascinating world of authentic fashion sense.



Scoop Makhathini style

Scoop Makhathini enjoys the enduring respects of the South African Hip Hop and fashion industry as one of the country’s best dressed media personalities. Fashion lovers who have studied his fashion forward outfits know this – his style is fascinating to explore, appealing to imitate but not easy to understand.

And as if being touted as one of the nation’s best presenters in not itself awesome enough, the stylish Hip Hop pundit clearly has no inhibitions putting on full display his original fashion aesthetic, most of which consists of unique garments he discovers in unconventional spaces, many remixes with his own understated sewing skills.

When he finally joined Instagram last year after years of his style trickling down timelines in his absentia, we knew a catalogue of visually interesting clothing was coming. Goodness! We want more action on that page.

Known for taking a few seconds to explain how he put his outfit together at the beginning of every episode of Turn Up (Fridays at 8:30 PM on Channel O, DStv channel 320), Scoop, real name Siyabonga Ngwekazi, has a passion for finding designs, prints, colours, cuts and shapes tailored for his personality.

What a personality it is!

With a cult following devoted to his weekly interventions and opinions on South African pop and street culture, Hip Hop, fashion and everything in between, Scoop has a big voice. Literally and figuratively. His voice is loud, eloquent and informed. Sometimes, many times, quite controversial.

His fashion choices often function to elevate his big personality of unbridled authenticity. Sometimes it’s the vintage flare he puts together by sourcing garb from local designers, thrift spots in the Joburg CBD and online stores. Other times it’s combinations of traditional inspiration with hints of urban Hip Hop street swag.

Sometimes he creatively reconstructs and remixes clothes to add his own aesthetic. Rarely, but notably, he comes on the white throne clad simply.

Here’s a look at 10 times he recently attended to our fascination with his style hits

SA Fashion Week Launches Talent Search

The hunt is on for South Africa’s newest fashion designer



Photo Credit: Supplied/SAFW

SA Fashion Week’s (SAFW) New Talent Search is days away to discovering our country’s most talented future fashion designer.  Established in 1998, this search is an opportunity to secure long-term growth for the designers who enter.

For over two decades, the SA Fashion Week New Talent Search has been revered as South Africa’s most prestigious fashion competition. 

Since its inception, it has launched the careers of many of our country’s most successful designers, some of whom include Black Coffee, David Tlale, MMUSOMAXWELL and more recent, Cindy Mfabe.


It’s a well-established fact that the most challenging period of a designer’s career is between 5-10 years of the growth of their brand. Faced with a diverse range of challenges, and in the face of a rapidly changing industry, this period is considered ‘make or break’.

The SA Fashion Week New Talent Search seeks to find those designers who have already succeeded in achieving certain criteria, the latter which includes locally-based womenswear businesses who supply a minimum of one store (their own, another or online) and have been in business for ten years or less.  Entering this competition provides both the winner, in addition to the finalists, an integral entry into sought-after contact and relationship-building opportunities with media, buyers and new clients.


Designers are selected, by a panel of industry-leaders, on their design talent, ability to follow the brief and their capacity to supply more stores in the future.  The prize is valued at over R60 000-00 and includes representation for a year by The Fashion Agent and the amazing opportunity to show at the SAFW SS21 Collections.

The brief for this year is Shaping the future of Sustainable Fashion.  Open to diverse interpretation, the sustainability of fashion’s future is a vital issue that needs addressing to ensure that the planet is protected for future generations.

Lucilla Booyzen, SAFW Founder and CEO, shared that “This is an incredibly exciting brief, providing a platform for creative curiosity and we encourage the entrants to consider all aspects of sustainability and what that means.” 


She added “There’s no formal definition of sustainable fashion, and sustainability and ethics can apply to many different aspects of a fashion business.  Without doubt, sustainable fashion brands are the future of our industry.”

The brief, process and all entry details can be found on SAFW website.  Registration must take place online before 5pm on the 16 July 2019.  More info HERE

Reliving the 90’s visible running technology boom, Sports brand PUMA is bringing back yet another revolutionary sneaker from the era – the CELL Alien OG.

A design that originally paved the way for futuristic sneakers in the world of running now returns as a renewed street style staple.


When PUMA innovated the CELL technology, it was the most durable and resilient cushioning

Today, over 20 years later, the sneakers have touched down with its original CELL cushioning technology, striking colour mix, and super-fresh design. The silhouette remains true to the original colourway for the first launch, with PUMA BLACK-SURF THE WEB-PUMA WHITE and LIME PUNCH on the cell bubble and breathable mesh upper with suede overlays and synthetic leather overlays sits atop an EVA midsole and rubber outsole.


After relaunching OG colourways in the first pack, modern iterations of iconic silhouette
will continue to drop throughout the year. The CELL Alien OG launched exclusively with Undefeated on April 25th with the local release hitting
