Creative graphic designer Rendani Nemakhavhani and photographer  Kgomotso Neto have been serving us some visual pleasures with a series called All Hail The Honey. I have absolutely enjoyed all the 3 chapters  and I cannot wait for more to follow. The series started off with the Honey (Rendani) in water and with a whip and of course it is interesting and we were intrigued and hoping for more. The narratives are very interesting and keep the audience up to date with the story. And they got me adding some of my own in the story.

As black girls we can relate to the 2nd chapter of All Hail The Honey series- The Hair Struggle. Our hair has suffered a lot from relaxers, braiding, weaves and plaiting. It is a struggle that. The Honey says that everyone should know that black hair shrinks in hair, it really does. Once you get your hair ‘DID’ you really avoid water because it all goes down and goes back to being nappy (But we still love it nonetheless)

We all dread those salon visits but they have to be done so we can keep our hair “fly” and most importantly healthy.

In the 3rd chapter Kgomotso steps in front of the lens to star as Gavini in a story inspired by Yizo Yizo. A story of love in the township, that kind of “Skhanda love” if you will. The visuals are absolutely amazing and they really did a good job.

The duo keep it real all the time and most of us can relate to their series. On being real Rendani has the following to say:

Real is always what I aim to show off in the work that I produce. That is exactly how I want the work to be received as genuine.  I don’t believe in fronting about what I’m selling. In The Honey series we are selling you what makes up a typical outfit for most girls. We don’t necessarily buy everything that we have (from fancy shops). People must also know that when black hair meets water it shrinks. It’s just a matter of understanding the basics of how you make what you have work.
