‘Boniswa’

A whimsical yet powerful new mural erected in the informal township of Khayelitsha, South Africa has been making waves on social media since its completion. Painted upon a north-facing wall in the heart of the Cape Town township, the beautiful piece depicts the likeness of a young girl named ‘Boniswa’. Conceptualised and painted by Johannesburg-based artist Breeze Yoko, the mural is a dedication to those who he views as holding the key to our future: the black girl child.

When Yankee Doodle went to town a-riding on a pony, he was being a poser. The British wrote the song ‘Yankee Doodle’ to ridicule Americans’ lack of class. The term 'macaroni’ described those sophisticated, worldly, and upper-class people with a stylish sense of fashion, so when that Yankee simpleton (doodle) put some random feather on his hat and called it classy (macaroni), it was just a failed attempt at trying to look cool.
