I’ve been in the Entertainment Industry since I was 16. I released my first Hip Hop single ‘Shake’ with rapper Da L.E.S, I made it to the top 16 of Idols SA Season 10. I then continued with my route as a singer Recording Artist and released my second single in March. In 2018 I studied Musical Theatre and Performance Arts at Stageworx Performing Arts School. I trained in dancing, singing and acting. I gained my ATCL diploma through Trinity London College. After my graduation, I got a talent agency and began going to auditions. I’ve been cast in numerous stage productions such as The Jack And The Beanstalk Pantomime Spectacular. Before lockdown, I was in a traveling show with The National Children’s Theatre. I recently started in Case app Die Kassie’ a hilarious series on Kyk Net, with Caspar De Vries.

My passion definitely lies in performing and singing. I would love to continue to work hard to be cast in films, series and theatre. I’m passionate about making great music and working with talented producers. Creating is my passion!
What drives you?
My family drives me and inspires me. They push me to not only succeed but to be the best version of myself. I am also my number one motivator. I know how to work hard and never give up, because I know I am capable of achieving great things if I put my mind to it.
If you could have the opportunity to perform at any festival/ gig, which would it be and why?
Performing at a festival would be a dream! I’d love to perform at Coachella.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I suffer with social anxiety.
What do you like most about the experience of being in front of the camera?
I love creating art and feeling confident. Working with the right photographers is key to ensure they make you feel as comfortable and beautiful as possible. I have the most fun when I’m shooting and I could do it any day of the week!
Which part of your body do you enjoy flaunting the most?
I enjoy flaunting my boobs [laughs]. For a long time I didn’t like them, but now, I have accepted them for the way they are.
What is your definition of sex appeal?
Sex appeal is all in the eyes and your body language. You have to be mesmerising, enticing but still allowing a mysterious story to be told.
How would you sum up the year 2020?
2020 has been an experience, a lesson and an opportunity for self reflection and growth.
What are you looking forward to most once the world returns to some type of normality?
I’m looking forward to meeting new people, socialising and getting back on the stage.
What does a day in your life usually consist of?
Right now, because of Covid-19 and the devastating position the industry is in, I haven’t been able to be involved in much work. I’ve been focusing on creating dope content on Instagram by collaborating with some of the best photographers in South Africa, including Carlos Frazao who took the pictures for this article!
During the week I’m busy preparing for a shoot, organising a shoot, or shooting. Other than that a day in my life is usually gym and a nice catchup with a friend. I also go to Impuls Radio Station once a week to do my slot. And of course, self care is key. You will usually find me running getting my hair, nails, brows and lashes done.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Turn on? A fit body and perfect tan.
Turn off? Arrogance.
Pet peeve? Bad breath.
Addicted? Loss of self.
Lifestyle? Easy going but always moving.
