We believe that for every amazing piece of music there’s always a team and some of the other members are usually behind the scenes & therefore never get acknowledged or get the credit they deserve. We also believe that there’s usually four people involved, #AwesomeFoursome is all about acknowledging all four members & highlighting the fact that each is an individual & brings a unique flavour to the awesome project they collaboratively create.
Lady X is a multi-talented vocalist and all round talent who has clearly made an impact in the music scene with her rich and distinctly soulful voice. She recently released a music video for her latest single, iGugu Lami late last year, the love she has received since dropping this song has not changed.
We were intrigued with her rare flair so we went to see her at her recording studio and got a chance to meet her whole team which consist of; Nkosiphile Ngcobo who is the creative director, Sheryl Govender who is her manager as well as well as Big Dreamz who is the producer. They gave us insights into what makes the brand Lady X work and what it takes to be a successful artist, the team later enjoyed their different choice of flavour from a delicious Awesome Foursome™ Debonairs Pizza after the interview.
MEET THE TEAM:
BTS: #AwesomeFoursome project with Austin Malema
We were lucky enough to be granted access to do a behind the scenes feature with a celebrated South African celebrity photographer, Austin Malema. He has a busy schedule and we caught up with him in Joburg on a random weekday whereby he was working on an exciting shoot with two models.
Photography isn’t a one man job and in order to be successful, you often need to work with a team of about four people. On the day, Austin’s #AwesomeFoursome included Enhle and Lindi (models) assisted by an up and coming photographer called Sivuyile Matsiliza. Austin is one of the biggest lifestyle photographer’s in South Africa with over 14 000 followers on twitter and a whopping 32 000 fans on Instagram. More often than not, people only get to see his work as the final product when it’s presented on social media or magazines, so we wanted to see the blood, sweat and tears that goes into Austin’s photography.
We chatted with the team to better understand the flavours they each bring to the table & better understand how they #CelebrateDifferent while working collaboratively to bring their project to life!
Malema and his team let us in on some pretty awesome photography insights and we later celebrated the full days work by indulging on delicious Awesome Foursome Debonairs Pizza with each member munching on a flavour which best represents their personality… fun was had!
