Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning. After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice! The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department.

Mikey Smallz

I am Mikey Smallz, a rapper hailing from the region of Cape Town, South Africa. I am 24 years old and have been a performing artist ever since I was a child. I fell in love with the R&B and hip-hop culture from the young age of 10. Learning and reciting all the lyrics from Tupac's famous song hit Em up. I went on for many years learning and singing along to some of my favourite artists. Some people are amazed at how many words I know off by heart, including my own two albums worth of songs. My fans have been very supportive of my work since I began writing. I am currently in negotiations with a record label and plan to make a move to Johannesburg to explore the industry, further my career and make some new friends along the way. My style is described as hard bass hip hop and trap, my clothing style varies, it ranges from baggy street wear to classy suites and often somewhere in between. I am about to record my 3rd studio album which will be released by summer this year, 2017. I am driven by the pure joy of music and sharing it with people. I am a humanitarian and strive everyday to make the world a cleaner, better, happier place. I get a thrill when I am on stage and that is why I love what I do. I am also an actor and have appeared on screen along side famous actors such Paul Du Toit. I am pushing both careers because I love art as a whole and find that I have a natural talent for both. Although I have experienced so much, I feel as though my journey has just begun. I hope to work with many more celebrities and travel the word experiencing the richness and cultures.
