Speaking to The Juice multimedia visual artist Trevor says his contribution to the event will be his multitude of skills. “In terms of my contribution I’m a multi-disciplinary visual artist, and what I bring to the table is just that.

As the only woman on the team, musician Sho Madjozi says that’s the first thing that sets her apart from the rest of the crew. “I also represent a real-life South African dynasty – the Rain Queens are real, they come from Limpopo. I wish more people knew more about them. It’s so amazing to be somebody who gets to actually play that and put them out there.”

The rapper counts being part of this project as a major highlight in her career so far. “I’m always saying my life is a movie, and now it literally is.”
