How-di-dow-di, Molweni, Sawubona, Dumelang! Santoni (AKA) Kwaito Koeksister here
I launched Kwaito Koeksister in December 2018 following my retrenchment from a national News channel. At the time, being forced to leave a job I loved, and a company I'd given my heart and soul to for almost 13 years was extremely traumatic. But I suppose that’s life: painful endings, new beginnings.
Soon after my retrenchment, Bondina (my life & business partner) and I took a wild jump into the unknown by jetting off to Bangkok to find products we could sell online.
My vision was, and always will be, to source the kind of funky clothing and accessories I love to wear - but which I can never seem to find in the shops.
Anyhow, soon after returning from our trip to Bangkok, we began selling our clothing, patches, earrings, mugs etc. at local markets and then ... BOOM! We launched our online store and the rest, as they say, is history.
As an artistic spirit and a (sometimes) larger-than-life personality, I’ve often been called 'eccentric’ or ‘weird’, I was also teased at school so I never really felt I belonged anywhere ‘normal. As a child, I found comfort in movies, games, music and fashion. Looking back, I guess you could say my motivation for sourcing and selling weird and wonderful things was born out of my feelings of being the misfit and the odd one out.
As an additional side hustle, Bondina and I want to help budding entrepreneurs looking to start their own online businesses. We’ve learned so much during the creation of Kwaito Koeksister and we’re more than happy to share this info. So if you need help, gooi us an email and we'll help if we can.
