yeah, that whole accent thing is real played out. i mean granted, as young south africans we are heavily influenced by whats goin on in the US esp i.t.o the whole urban culture thing. I just don think its necessary for us to be sounding like they do, or tryna sound like them. We hav our own accents down here, and i don think they're anything to be ashamed off, twang if u wanna twang as long as its a south african twang...

I figured what I think on the topic doesn't matter in the bigger picture. Voicing my opinion will not make me any different from any of the posters thus far. Just know that by letting it be there is a bigger picture that one needs to know will come into play and have a profound effect in the long run. Kinda like the ma**es together can make a huge difference, but everyone sticks to their instincts of being seperate indiviuals with no link to the outcomes of inportant social proccesses. Imagine if everyone were to act on something because it was th right thing to do. Too bad it'll never happen like the complete suppression of the voices of those who stand up to the corruption of the powers that be. If it is a sicere cause there will always be someone to take their places.

Its not about slander, but about converting the wack.

Problem is , these dudes are so confident in their wackness that I think they need to be confronted by close friends and relatives. . .  an intervention of some sorts.

^^ For real an intervention, only wit razors and baseball bats :twisted: .... thing is, Cazy Lu's mommy is his manager, so shes unlikely to participate or even sanction the intervention.
