Makhadzi has joined the likes of Cassper Nyovest who recently bagged a deal with a local kicks sportswear Drip Footwear. In June he announced that he has bagged a 100 million deal with Drip Footwear CEO and Founder Lekau. Explaining the deal on MacG’s podcast Lekau said: “It’s just a product and we signed a contract worth R100 million for the products. If it’s a sneaker or a T-shirt worth R2000 we are going to make ones that are worth 100 Million. Up until that particular term ends. So that is how much it came to 100 million.
“If one Drip is R1000 then we are going to manufacture 100 000 Drips and that makes 100 Million. So the deal itself is worth R100M not to say by the end of term Cassper would have made R100M.
He also announced that he has launched his own premium alcohol brand. Cassper explained the inspiration behind the name. “It’s taken from the word Billion. It’s a state of mind. It’s also taken from culture in a township call Vaal in South Africa. They consider themselves to be Italians. So it’s (Billiato) is Ghetto fabulous,”
“This is for the dreamers! The future billionaires! Here’s a toast to us. This summer is gonna be lit! This is all we gonna be drinking! Luxury!” They really do have something in common with Makhadzi and we cannot wait to witness them reach the billionaire status.
