Introducing: Culturalist, Isreal Mlambo!

I was going through the comments waiting to be moderated on my blog when I saw a comment by one Israel Izz Mlambo, saying:

Nice blog. I have just discovered it and like it and will start to enjoy it. Please do pop in at mine.

This seemed so much like SPAM to me and my natural instict was to delete the comment but then, I hesitated. I checked the blog and enjoyed this post in particular: “Best dressed Nigerians hated by South Africans“. Such objectivity as exhibited by this gentleman is hard to come by:

[…]We had a conversation with my little sister about it on the way back to work. In our conversation, we just confirmed what I had been silently aware of for some time. That most Nigerians and Zimbabweans (or rather, foreigners in general) in South Africa work harder and are nicer than the typical lower class (and even middle class) South African. They tend to be more dedicated, more entrepreneurial and taking any job that is available to avoid sitting on their laurels waiting for gov to churn out jobs through ASGISA. This good spirit is without exception to the foreigners who are here only to scam my fellow country man, sell drugs, pimp young girls and more of such evils. But then again, somebody will say South Africans, on average do more evil, and that’s unfortunately true).[…]

This very same blog entry lead me to an article by Mail&Guardian titled: “Capitalist Nigger”. I love the article.

It is with pleasure that I introduce to you, a black South African blogger, Israel Mlambo. He blogs at

* You should read another of his blog post “The SA blogosphere is ‘entirely’ white” to understand why I emphasized the word “black”. 🙂

  1. It is not fair to humble a man in this manner Oluniyi. It is not fair. For tears of joy may fall and he may thought of as a sissy.

    Thanks for the introduction. I will continue to strive for the objectivity that I intent to be the staple of my blog.
