Africa Man


This project is about a man from Ghana that works at the Yeoville Market. This ‘African man’ called Alexanda has spent 5 years without a legal South African Residence permit. The mother of his children is from South Africa and he has a family of three.

Alexanda came to South Africa to further his education, he studied marketing in Ghana for 3 years and was expecting to get a bursary to study further but could not due to not having a legal permit. This is what made him start a shoe repairing business at the Yeoville Market where he met another Ghanaian named Musa who also works at Yeoville as a Fashion designer.
