What’s your typical weekday like?
Hmmm my typical day as of now has me attending the gym early in the morning, then I’m at work from 8am – 4:30pm. My evenings are pretty unpredictable. For most times I go back home to rest and revise or go to church for services. That’s basically how my typical weekday goes.
What inspires you?
There’s so many things that inspire me. photos, quotes, life-experiences, Books, the bible etc. There’s a lot of people that inspire me too. My friends, family, my spiritual father Reverend Doxa Disashi, these people are always inspiring me to continue working hard for excellence. However, there’s one key thing that stands out as the ultimate inspiration for me and that is the act of serving others. (Selflessness)
Everyone is different and has their own style DNA …tell us a bit about yours.
I guess my style DNA is classic façade, always elegant and timeless in choice. I favour pieces that have clean lines and minimal detail. I find what most flatters my body and almost never stray from this. I’m more on the well-groomed, sophisticated side of style.

How has your style evolved in the past 5 years?
My style has evolved tremendously, I was once one who only wore sneakers and timberlands. Big jeans, big t-shirts, saggy pants, snap backs. I was never one to flirt with colour. I kept a two colour dress code. But as the years went by I realised big clothes only made me look skinnier, so I started wearing clothes that fit the size of my body and I started mixing colour. And to this is day its basically impossible to see me wear two colours I LOVE COLOUR blocking. It brings out the creative in me. I’ve gone from saggy pants to slim fit. From big t-shirts to slim fit shirts. Progress!
What will you never be caught wearing?
Leather pants and shiny suits.
