In November 2012, The Ninevites Gang packed bags and missioned to Semonkong, Lesotho - a place of roots and inspiration for designer Nkuli Mlangeni. Thus was born "The Same Old Shirt Collection" - clothes inspired by Basotho culture and street style.

The Ninevites Gang formed in the late 19th century when a group of South Africans longed to break away from injustice and establish a new era and way of living. They were led by a young Zulu man from Natal called Mzuzephi Mathebula, alias ‘Nongoloza.’ At a young age, Nongoloza was falsely accused of a crime and faced years of indentured servitude. With nowhere to turn, he joined up with other like-minded, young South Africans and The Ninevites were born.
They took their name from the biblical Ninevites. In both contexts, the groups are portrayed as anti-establishment, revolutionary and misunderstood.
