It seems talent runs in the Harron family. You probably already know Aqeelah Harron of fashion blog Fashion Breed but have you met her uber-talented brother Ameen Harron yet? Chances are you’ve heard some of his hit tracks on the radio but the musician hasn’t stopped there. After producing and writing some of the country’s top songs for both himself and other artists, Ameen decided to start his own record label, proving that Cape Town’s talent pool is still very much alive and kicking. Here, the hitmaker reveals everything he loves about his hometown.
