TV and Radio personality Unathi Nkayi wants you to forget about the rumours she is the face of the global fashion brand MaXhosa.
Taking to her Instagram page recently to set the record straight, Unathi confirmed that she is a huge supporter of MaXhosa but she pointed out that she is not getting the designer garments for free, contrary to popular belief.
Sharing snaps of herself donning her signature MaXhosa print skirt paired with a matching crop top after Sunday’s episode of the “Idols SA”, Nkayi explained why she likes the brand, while she also urged Mzansi to support their local brands. “Allow me to dispel a few rumours that have been living and breathing on some peoples tongues. I love South African fashion so much, that I insist on paying for everything I wear.” – Unathi captioned her post.
“I always say to my favourite designers ‘Please use me as your walking canvas and don’t forget to send me the invoice.’ Because art is our wealth. I am and never have been ambassador to and for MaXhosa. I simply love them and would do anything for them. For many reasons ranging from the fact that we come from the same neck of the woods to the fact that they are a global couture brand and if I don’t push and support them as their big sis then who will? Every single person at Maxhosa I honour and love and would do anything for.”
MaXhosa is a South African knitwear brand founded by Laduma Ngxokolo in 2012. The coolest part is the fact that she and other South African stars can be able to support local brands without expecting to be paid for it.
