Bokang and Siphiwe (Instagram)
Former Miss SA Bokang Montjane and her soccer star hubby Siphiwe
Tshabalala have launched SB Kids, a kiddies clothing brand which seeks to
inspire the African child.
The idea came when Bokang had her son Olwethu and realised what
was the fashion on the market for South African kids. “It’s Spider, Ben 10,
Batman, and Superman. Each and every time these heroes take off their masks
they are not going to look like my son and he will think he cannot be a hero
and cannot be great” says Bokang.
Princess Bokang is the character for the girls’ line. She
grew up in a village in Limpopo, became independent and got her Miss SA crown
before she met her soccer star prince. It is a story encouraging young girls
that they can do it on their own.
