I was born and raised in Johannesburg east and I spend most of my time travelling around the city and its surroundings. I have an ability to speak four South African Official languages. I spend most of my time in art spaces, historical spaces and other entertaiment places. I'm a very disciplined person and I get along with people real easy. Speaking different South African languages makes my way real easy around.

Guests can bring money so that they can pay for the museums entrance, buy arts and craft items if they willing to and other things that the guests might see necessary. Vilakazi street offers a wide range of African craft, restaurants and clothing.
