Metro Weekend Interview.

I was featured in Metro Weekend Stockholm’s “Gatsmart” last week. Its a section where they ask you questions about who you are, what you do, what you are wearing, where you like to go out etc. This is how it turned out.

Mahoyo Photo Shoot (behind the scenes)

Its been ages since we did a proper photo shoot, cant even remember last time to be honest, so this session was very much needed. We are so happy with the final result, but we cant show those pics just yet, in the meantime we got some behind the scene pics for ya’ll. Big thanks to our photographer Kamohelo Khoaripe for doing a great job!

Mahoyo x Backa Kulturhus (City of Gothenburg)

Earlier this month we were invited to Gothenburg to talk and hold dj workshops for ninth graders at Backa Kulturhus. We have not done anything like that before so it was a bit nerve wracking but also exciting at the same time. We talked about Mahoyo, how we work as a creative collective, the webshop, dj:ing, styling and overall process of owning s company, in hopes to inspire them to chase their own dreams. Afterwards we held a Dj workshop for them and its as so wonderful to see so many talents amongst these young boys and girls. The day ended with us spinning tracks at the youth centre at the evening. Big thanks to the city of Gothenburg and to Anna Magnolia Lönn who made it all happen. Check out more pics from the event.

Kickstarter update! Onwards!

Our deadline at Kickstarter has surpassed and unfortunately our goal was not reached. We are still moving full steam ahead on the project though, and with potential funds from several grants, we will hopefully still be heading to South Africa in March 2014.

Please follow our progress on mahoyo.com and reach out to us at info[at]mahoyo.com – if you are still interested in contributing to the Breaking Stereotypes project.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us thus far and we look forward to turning this documentary into a reality!

With gratitude,
