Every success story is a tale of constant adaption , revision and change ! The loss of his great grandmother brought a great change in his life for good. 

” I grew up in a community which is known for drugs and crime but I chose a different route”

Born and bred in Davidsonville , Keavan Buyer is a 18 year old soccer star in the making . His journey started at the age of 6 when his uncle enrolled him into Davidsonville United. “My uncle was a soccer player even though he didn’t play professionally , I decided to take a chance ” he said .

His breakthrough started in 2017 when he was still an athlete . One of his friends informed him of the trials at Kaiser Chiefs development. 

” they didn’t have anyone under the age of 17 , i believe I was 15 and the guys there were stronger and older than me but eventually they like my performance and I continue to play throughout 2017.

” What kept me to the top of my game is discipline ” he expressed.

In 2019 he finished matric and achieved 2 distinctions in maths lit and life orientation . In 2020 Covid19 happened!

S.A_RIFA’s “The Heist” Tackles socio-economic issues such as rape , corruption and racism!

We do not need magic to change the world, everyone possess all the power they need inside themselves already. We all have the power to imagine better!

South africa’s most loved female rapper SA_Rifa uses words to flow about the most controversial issues we are facing in the country .Hailing from the dusty streets of Bisho in the Eastern Cape , Sarifa Sokutu who is known to her peers and fans as ” SA_RIFA ” is brave enough to “speak to say “enough is enough “.

Its understood a 20 year old rapper started writing music at the age of 10 and she’s been passionate about it ever since.
“What makes me stand out is the fact that I’m myself and there’s no other SA_Rifa out there , there’s one and it’s me”. She said. 
When asked about where she drew her inspiration from she said “Growing up , I used to watch TV a lot and I would always watch music channels all the time. I think seeing a lot of artists like Drake , J Cole and Jay-Z just to name a few make music is what inspired me the most. I also just saw a gap in the market because there weren’t any south African female rappers on TV at the time and I just wanted to be that especially after seeing someone like Nicki Minaj and so I started writing music from there”. She added.
 “I have quite a few influence , but I think my greatest influence in music is Drake. He’s just done a lot for the culture and he’s always on top of his game and makes sure to push his pen all the time and I draw a lot of inspiration from that” She sighed!
Her current single which believed to be her 3rd single dropped on the 08th of March featuring the most talented and amazing Vocalist named ‘Piscez’. Its believed the song inspiration derived from her favorite series called “Money Heist”.
“the song kinda name drops some of the characters in the series but it also addresses the socio-economic issues that we are faced with as a country such as rape , corruption and racism just to name a few”. She expressed. 
The song is produced by ‘Christer’ , engineered by ‘Zeph’ and is available on all digital platforms .

Due to the pandemic she hasn’t scheduled any performances as of yet , but plans on shooting her music video soon. Speaking to the publication about how society values women especially in the entertainment industry she said “
“I don’t think women are treated fairly.We always have to work extra extra hard to be recognised in the industry especially in hip hop cause it’s very male dominated and women are always expected to dress in a certain way In order to seem more appealing to their audience whereas with men no one ever tells them how to dress”. 
In her conclusion she said “There is absolutely no limit to what you can do. Work towards your dreams and remember that everyone has their own journey and so you will eventually end up where God has destined you to be”.

Soso is a force of Inspiring Change!

People say different things about prostitution. Some think that it would actually help sex workers more if it were decriminalised?

I think it’s true to say that every woman has a breaking point! It may be OK for this girl, who is independent and manages to pay her bills , but not for this girl, who was molested as a child, who never knew she had another choice, who was just trying to get money to make ends meet. Sound like justifying , isn’t?

The great solution to all human problems is individual inner transformation. Well a proud mom of two , following her drug addiction, is helping Nyaope boys to realise their worth. 

“I met Mahomed who then introduced me to Chris, the founder of Thuthukani projects and that’s when i have realised that I needed to change my ways before it’s too late” She said.

“The physical abuse was horrible, but the real abuse was the mental abuse – the things they would say that would just stick and which i could never get from under”. She added.
” I am fed up! I’m done looking down on myself “. She sighed!

Going hard in the gym and contemplating her next move that which involves Soup kitchen project for the boys who are willing to take a stand and Change their ways.

Nobody does faces her demons quite like Soso. 
While us “so called normals” are on each other’s throats , probably competing against each other , drinking and blame it on the alcohol instead of taking responsibility of our lives , she’s devoted her time on making a difference!

And, of course , she’s admitted to not being entirely sober while doing it, but if she wants to bring back the spirit of “Ubuntu” cause that’s what we supposed to then hands off ! You are not going to question her methods of Goodwill.

” it hasn’t been easy and I have never thought for a minute that it would be easy ”  ” am doing this for me and no one else” she added.

“People were concerned when I left the street life ” Who do you think you are ? How are you going to make money?
In her conclusion she said.” It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform. If I can do it so is you.
