The Black Diamonds of SowetoBy Antony Kaminju

The place is Panyaza Chesa nyama ('cook the meat') in Soweto Township, south of Johannesburg, South Africa. Most of the patrons are young black South Africans with a good bank balance to spend on entertainment - the marketing world calls them "black diamonds". They come here in droves every Sunday afternoon wearing the latest fashion labels and sunglasses; the girls walk about as though on a catwalk. Many of them have moved to the suburbs, but come back to the township to party. They drive here in sunroof BMWs, new Mini coopers, and top-of-the-range 4x4s. The cars are spotlessly clean and some have been fitted with 15 inch subwoofers. Hip hop music blasts from the cars; everyone dances.
