logoDear sir/madam,

I’m a singer song writer. I’m an artist.

Performing arts have always been my passion and I started performing at an early age. I loved being on stage. Growing up in Diespsloot, a township in South Africa, where young people are introduced to drugs and alcohol, I have aways kept myself busy with writing music and performing.

I aways believed that one day I would be able to give back to my community, and give hope and inspiration though music. I believed that I could help young people to better their lives… give them something to hold on to.

Studying at the East Rand School of Arts helped me to grow as an artist, and working with many
image7actors and musicians gave me greater understanding of writing and directing.

I started Kids with Rhythm (KWR) in 2011. It started as a dream… now it is a reality! Kids are given a platform to express themselves thought the arts… drama, dance, music and poetry. I believe that we all have to play a part in the development of young people, especially in places like Diepsloot where we don’t have Arts School or Theatres.

As man of God, a Christian, I believe in giving… giving my time to these young people is the greatest thing for me.

Let’s stand together and make a change.

With God we can.
