In celebrating this milestone, the treasured brand is on the hunt for a trio of young designers, performers, and artists with both the drive and skills to showcase their creative side.

According to KFC’s Senior Marketing Manager, Hloni Mohope, the initiative aims to inspire fans who are hungry for success and want to take up space in the creative industry.

“At KFC we are proud that over the past 50 years, we have become a part of South African culture, and thus our fans’ passions have inspired ours,” says Mohope. “Through our Streetwise Culture Crew platform, collaborations and creative challenges, we aim to fuel our fans’ hunger for culture creation in the same way our Original Recipe chicken feeds their desire for finger lickin’ good chicken.”
