A Shy Spirit Awakened : Olwethu Keosi


Amazed by his daring looks on Twitter I felt the need to blog about him cause best believe he has the potential to be a model the world has never seen before. So this is a platform for him to be a force to be reckoned with, let all the vultures appear as the 5'9 human mannequin is ready for the modelling scene.

Something Of Value :
"I like that you can be anything. You get a chance to try something new everyday that you wake up and I like people who are so different and so complex". 


A Little About The Boy In A Shadows

(1) Tell us what your life is about? 
I'm from Zigodlo which is just a tiny village outside King Williams Town in the Eastern Cape, I Now live in Jeffrey's Bay - great town!

My life is about so many things, we are all so multifaceted so its hard to pick just one thing but if I had to pick one to focus on it would be Creativity, even from a young age I was fascinated by the idea of creating things, and the ability to draw inspiration from everyday life,  so all in all i guess my life is about staying creative.

(2) What do you do for a living?
I'm a Videographer / Editor at Victory Media (So I guess the 1st question makes more sense now about being constantly creative).

(3) What got you to have such an impeccable style?
My style influences - Living in a town internationally known for surfing and where  everyone has a beach-vibe and is very casual and chilled you learn a thing or two so my style is very relaxed yet trendy because I'm personally obsessed with ties and bow ties, so its almost like a blend of the two, which I think sounds strange but if done just right it works... Bow ties & Beach balls.



(4) Are you a model? (If yes, enlighten us) 
No, I've just done friends photographic portfolios, but it definitely would be awesome thou. 




(5) How many jobs have you worked as a model?
None.  

(6) Do you see a future in this modeling business?
Its only lately that people have suggested it, I don't know, I don't want to pigeon hole myself so maybe it could happen, we'll see.

(7) What advice would you give to kids out there who want to be like you? 
Simple - LOL, I'd probably advice them to not be like anybody else but be themselves - but advice shall be given nonetheless:
(a) Don't let anybody tell you what you can and can't do, unless you want to be spider-man then no you can't be spider-man - it's very hard to find a radioactive spider, I've tried.
(b) Hard-work will pay off. 
(c) Chase after your dreams no one can do it for you.
