From the start of my Mr South Africa journey, I have been overwhelmed by the support from friends and family, and also from the sponsors interested in sharing in the adventure with me. I have been involved with many amazing brands and thank each and every one of them for their support, guidance and generosity.

Keep watching my Facebook page for updates and news on sponsors and brands I am involved with.
