Peace and Blessings be with you.

I realised whilst editing the second episode for Ama Supporter that these videos, more than promoting the people in them, and helping me sharpen my skills, will one day make a contribution to the documentation of the people and places of Cape Town. It was only because I started chatting to him that he told me about his work as a fashion model in the 70’s in Apartheid Cape Town as a coloured man. It was fortunate for me that I had the canon ixus handy.

Boeta Sulayman, was recommended to me by a friend and since then he has altered 3 trousers  impeccably. Thank you Mr. Adams for the recommend!

Boeta Sulayman is a friendly enough man who I am sure would appreciate a visit, and yes, if you have, your business.



  1. He seems to take so much pride in his craft, which reminds me of my own grandfather who was a skilled cooper. I had to chuckle at the story of ”Gossip”. Talk about value for money!

  2. Hi Yasser, Please could you call me urgently re some photographs
