I’m the Junior Writer, and I write stories for both our online and print platforms. I’ve always been passionate about the world of media and entertainment and I’m grateful to now have an opportunity where I can give people a voice. Some of the celebs I’ve interviewed include, Cassper Nyovest, Randy Fenoli, Maps Maponyane, Mel Gibson, and a whole lot more. I’m also passionate about social media; I love the fact that it has made it so much easier for people to get themselves out there. If I’m not writing stories, I’m either in the studio making music, especially Hip Hop or I’ll be spending time with my loved ones.
