Crisco BL

My name is Sabelo Crisco Dlamini better known as Crisco BL. I’m an illustrator based in Durban. I’ve been illustrating for about a year & unlike other digital illustrators, I use my phone instead of a laptop to create my paintings.
My art is based on Depression, Anxiety & Anti Self Harm. The reason as to why I base my illustrations around these things is because I don’t think they are spoken of as much as they should be nor are they taken seriously. My illustrations or a form of self-reflection, things that I’ve gone through myself. I feel that in doing this, people can relate to my art as much as I do. 
A lot of teenagers these days go through the above mentioned and don’t have the platform to talk about it or express it. I want to make art that makes people feel like they’re not alone and that there are ways to deal with their pain.
You’ve probably noticed that I use a lot of yellow as a background in all my art. Yellow is a colour that is associated with happiness. I use the c…

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.
