“To God be the glory. I am grateful for the gift of life and wisdom God gives me on a daily basis. Special mention goes to my family who is the first ones to approve of and see my outfits every time I attend events, they are my personal stylists.
I would love to acknowledge people such as Nkanyeziyethu Malunga, Mbo Mahocs, Craig Zoowie & Dalu Malunga for helping me shape my style when I got into fashion 10 years back, I appreciate you guys. To all the designers I have worked with, thank you so much. It’s an honour to be on a global magazine I grew up reading, this just reminds me that anything is possible, all you need to do is aim higher and stay true to yourself”Gilmore Tee: Forbes Africa 30 under 30 alumni
