This is appropriate because, in South Africa, June is known as Youth Month and on 16 June every year we celebrate Youth Day - commemorating the start of the Soweto Riots of 1976 and highlighting the importance of the youth of the country.
In keeping with this theme Nelson Makamo is on the cover of the publication’s men’s mag: Destiny Man for June 2016. If you’re not up on the latest happenings in the world of the visual arts then here’s the cover, where he is from and what he does.
