“Slikour is ideal because he was able to juggle between being a rapper and a businessman throughout the years. He is to share some knowledge with us Batswana by sharing the secret to making it and growing big. From being on Skwata Camp to where he is now and how he was able to direct the brand, he will be assisting with public relations and marketing of the event,” revealed Tshiamiso.
