In the 1950's, DRUM was a pioneer of black journalism bringing together courageous investigative journalism and cutting-edge photojournalism for Africa. But DRUM isn't just about history. South Africa has changed a lot in the last 50 years, and DRUM has kept pace with these changes. Today it is a thoroughly modern magazine in touch with its readers. Our recipe for success is simple but effective: we give our readers what they want.

true reflections

I AM so worried about the influence social media has on young girls. Don’t get me wrong, social media has many benefits, but I’m convinced the bad outweighs the good. The original intent of social media may have been to allow people to share who they are with others, but the opposite has happened. Little girls are becoming less confident in their own skin as they now have unrealistic expectations of what life should be like. It’s fine to have role models but aspiring to be someone’s duplicate is perilous in my view. And most of these social media stars only show the “perfect” parts of their lives and omit the real challenges of life. While much of the blame can be put on social media, we should also consider how families shape growing, young…

BEAT BREAST CANCER IT’S not something men often think about. After all, they don’t have breasts. But as Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles, recently learnt, guys do have breast tissue – and it can become cancerous. Mathew has revealed he had a mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis (page 72). Worldwide the disease affects fewer than 1% of men but in SA it’s the leading cancer affecting women. According to the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa), one in 27 women are at risk of being diagnosed. The chances of surviving breast cancer are higher if it’s detected and treated early. Don’t let Breast Cancer Awareness month go by without checking your breasts. Visit cansa.org.za to learn how.

a day to remember

‘I swear in front of everyone here that I’ll never leave your side no matter what’ SHE loves being married to her husband so much she keeps saying “I do”. Two years ago, actress Baby Cele married her husband, Thabo Maloka, in a lavish ceremony. And now she’s done it again with another traditional ceremony. “This is a final step to seal our marriage,” she says of their umembeso. From arriving in an airplane to the glamorous outfits and fancy reception, Baby and Thabo spared no expense to make their day special. The umembeso kicks off with the Malokas presenting gifts – including blankets, shirts, aprons, plates and cups – to the Celes while Baby patiently waits indoors for her in-laws to come to dress her before introducing her to Thabo’s mother. She’s overcome with emotion…
