For this week’s Brand of the Week, we look at Spokenpriestess and her collaboration with one of South Africa’s leading fashion retailers, Foschini. Spokenpriestess has an exclusive T-shirt coming from the release of her first music video for ‘Rotation Shemix’.
No stranger to Pat on Brands
Spokenpriestess is not new on the Pat on Brands platform. She was part of our Pat on Brands Dialogues in June for Youth Month in the Expressive Visionaries panel (watch here). An AfroBeats DJ, copywriter, and lover of all things African, that’s how best to describe her. She has a deep-rooted journey in the entertainment industry spanning over 10 years.
She has worked in music, radio (UJFM), PR as a writer for Silkour Online and Hype Magazine, artist management, events planner and artist liaison for artists in Hip-Hop like Ginger Trill, Kid Tini, and many more.
The T-shirt is designed by a Johannesburg-based illustrator, Zee Feels. The illustration features women who are in Spokenpriestess’ song which include, Moozlie, Tamarsha, Lioness, Crystal Asige, and Phlow.
The main goal for this T-shirt is to empower women. All the profit (R50 from each T-shirt) made from the R50 from each T-shirt sold will go to the Frida Hartley Shelter for Destitute Women and Children based in Yoeville, Johannesburg. The shelter takes in homeless women and their children who have endured neglect, abuse, trauma and homelessness. They shelter individuals who have lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet; young homeless mothers looking to kick-start their lives.
The Rotation Shemix T-shirt is currently available in Foschini and Donna stores nationwide and online for R199.
