Flex Urban is a lifestyle blog showcasing the latest in urban culture and trendy living. The blog has already amassed a large following on Twitter (@flexurban) and subscription to the website itself. Founder of Flex Urban, Nhlanhla Mazibuko, started the company as just a blog and has grown it to include services such as Flex Urban TV, a clothing line and the latest content in music, clothing and technology to name a few.
