10 August 2020, felt like a very weird day. I woke up feeling weird and went for a young hike to breathe a bit and get my mood right. When I got home, I felt better. Around 3 pm my laptop was on to complete a few campaigns and monitor digital presence the POWER Drive show. Around 16:30, I noticed a hashtag that was trending. Fast. I started checking what was happening and I kept saying to myself, NO WAYS! Already in tears and in a state of panic, I called my boss,
Me: Boss have you been on Twitter today?
Boss: No, why?
07/07/2019 was the day we finally launched this blog as you see it. A year later, here we are up and running and forming some kind of shape. A year ago when I registered the name Ke Kgoshigadi officially, I had no idea what I was doing. I was just excited to start. In fact, I was so excited I had the logo and the blog running before I registered the name. It was by faith really, that the name was still available.
I remember approaching a self-proclaimed …
Now I know the lockdown hasn’t completely ended but wow, what a bitch slap from 2020.
I actually can’t believe it’s June already, just yesterday it was January. I was eager and excited about the new year, I had laid the foundations in 2019 for 2020, I was sure things would come to manifestation this year and I was head over heels with an amazing guy. But here’s what 2020 brought on so far.
Work didn’t really stop for me. Just before the lockdown, we were given permits to continue to come to work when required #EssentialWorker. The digital department was suddenly very …
In the last few weeks, we’ve seen how the internet literally does not forget. We’ve seen incidences of people whose videos and tweets were dug up from the past and brought to life is 2020. From Miss South Africa hopeful Bianca to Miss Universe Zozi Thunzi. Someone sat and thought; “What can I do with my internet today?” and proceeded to get tweets from the past but there’s something to learn here.
A few weeks ago I had an interview on POWER 98.7’s POWER Up with Kwena Moabelo discussing “The Internet Doesn’t Forget” with two other digital experts. Here are a few pointers that came …
So there I was one night, awake after obsessing about a concept for a while. I hadn’t yet figured out the solution to the problem and it was lingering in my mind, strongly. I eventually let it go and just before I fell asleep, it hit me. I quickly got up and wrote the idea on my phone and sent it to a friend because I wanted a response the next day.
I was working on it and last night I opened Instagram and BAAAAM! My idea, to the T. Every like detail I described was right in front of me, except I didn’t …
The first time I heard of DFM was about 3 years ago; idling around waiting for my mom to finish her shopping. I know right, I was waiting for her to finish her shopping and I ended up shopping. Anyhoo, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw brands like River Island, FILA, ALDO, Ted Baker and Calvin Klein at affordable prices.

So my first thought when I heard about the collaboration with David Tlale and Avon was; I wonder what that perfume will smell like. I was excited that David would offer a his and her signature scent. The marketing manager of Avon SA laughed when I took him this and told us to be patient.

The launch took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westcliff. The deco was nothing short of glamorous and classy. I got to appreciate the views from the balcony. The landscape …
Twenty-Nineteen. Where the f*** do I even begin to describe this year? Like many others would say; this year almost destroyed me but I had to make a choice, do I really want to be destroyed or do I want to make it. My stubborn will to live left me with no choice except, I will make it. Not only will I make it but I will be victorious, somehow.
One of the hardest lessons this year was letting go, in fact, it was a major theme throughout. I walked into the year knowing that I was carrying too much baggage. Too …
The moment I saw the line up, I knew it would be an important groove to attend. The line-up had artists that I love but I missed their one-man shows this year. The main act Tom Misch was another reason I was amendment on going to Music Is King [MIK], he was making his way back to South Africa for the second time. When the day finally came I was beyond excited; outfit and make-up was planned and ready.
The tickets noted that the concert would start at 3pm and I was …
This road trip, like most road trip was a spontaneous decision. It all started with a status update from a friend saying that she “sbwl” a road trip and two of us responded to her. A few hours after responding to her, we were already discussing logistics and where the road would lead to. What seemed like a joke, quickly turned into something that was really happening.
