My name is Ntokozo Njabulo Dladla, I live in the Eastrand in a small town called Spruitview, I grew up in this place my whole life and thanks to the fact that my father was a hard worker I got to experience the wonderful and breathtaking world of Cartoon Network. The 24 Hour Cartoon Channel didn’t just entertain me it inspired me to draw my own comics and come up with characters of my own. At the same time, I fell in love with rap music and already bring the type of person that doesn’t just watch I participated and wrote my own music.

I had just passed Matric, my Older sister was living with us at the time one day she told me that the way I dress was for lack of a better word “Hobo Chic” and if I wanted to get girls I should look at how Pharrell Dresses and copy his style. After downloading images and reading about Pharrell, I wanted to be like him, I wanted to have my own clothing line that had images of things that fascinated me as a nerd so I started designing Billionaire Boys Club-esque logo’s on windows paint and that opened the door to graphic design.

During my college years, I got into partying and that introduced me to drugs and alcohol, my life became a mess, the sister that introduced me to my career had passed away. Reasons to live were few but in 2016 I checked into rehab and I haven’t looked back since. Now I’m a year sober, my life as a freelance Graphic Designer/Rapper consists of me working on things I enjoy, taking me back to the days of my youth when I lived and breathed exercising my Talents because they were apart of me as I am apart of them.
