In October 2020, Daphney Olebile Muzila beat 15 other hopefuls to be voted the female face of Keno; now it’s the men’s turn to shine.

As of 8 August, newsfeeds have been filled with different representations of male sophistication and elegance, as dapper dudes try to prove they can rock a suit like no other.

Spare a though for those on the judging panel because the competition is fierce!

From high-profile artists to some of our favourite influencers, the battle is on for the boys to not only show off their unique flair, but to tell their ‘passion for fashion’ story.

“The Face of Keno competition is more about inclusivity, in order to allow for the average Batswana to also partake and buy into the Keno brand,” explained Keno co-founder, Thobo Kerekang, whose clothing empire turns ten next year.

Outlining the rules of the comp, which runs for a total of eight weeks, VYB Digital CEO, Karabo Letsholo told Voice Entertainment submissions will continue until 5 September.

“After that, the shortlisted candidates will be invited for a virtual interview to discuss their fashion journey, aspirations and ambassadorship ideas,” laid out Letsholo.

After the finalists are announced, the public will get the chance to vote for their favourite on Keno’s social media pages.

Due to their online popularity, influencers tend to prevail in such competitions.
