Isn’t it funny how when you start working, you cannot wait to leave your kasi to live in that urban area that you have dreamt of living in that big corner house in Parkhurst for years? However, you spend your weekends’ ko kasi.
Being in kasi for the weekend has become part of your lifestyle, and your hometown will forever be the capital of partying and fun for you in South Africa.
All the cool and best carwashes, restaurants – food spots, salons, and your boys at the corner are in your kasi, and it is familiar driving down those streets. You love living in the burbs, but Monate wa Kasi is an experience you do not want to miss.
So, why do all roads lead to kasi ka weekend? It seems people don’t party in the burbs anymore. Why is that? Where do they go? Which is the place to hang out at and on which day?
The best T in the City presenter Tbose, shares some of his reasons for spending his weekends’ ko kasi.
Why do you prefer Monate Wa Kasi:
The People: You will meet people from all walks of life with one goal: having fun. No one seems to care about how much money you have. Everyone wants to come together and have a good laugh over some drinks. Ubuntu is very rife in your hometown; when you need assistance with anything, someone is always ready to help.
Food: Fine dining is a nice treat from time to time however, nothing beats having chesa nyama, maotwana, magwinya and Nama ya hloho any time of the day. eKasi cuisine is in high demand, but we also ensure that we keep the economic flow moving.
Affordability: Kasi can be very affordable. From food and drinks to carwashes and salons. So while we love living in the burbs, we can’t deny that kasi is where it is at when it comes to affordability.
