5 Reasons Why We Love Mother City ‘Mazing

Five reasons why we love Cape Town's Mother City 'Mazing tumblr.


Alex Osterman and Emma Hessen are two hilarious ladies who brighten our days with their .gif tribute to Cape town, Mother City ‘Mazing. Whether it’s about the latest media scandal a la Max Barashenkov and Montle Moroosi, international stars joining local soap operas or the various bars we Cape Townians brave, there’s a little something for everyone.
