Sweet Dreams Kaya

It was with great sadness that, following a tragic car accident, Kaya passed away on the 27th February. While I hadn't seen her for some time, I have fond memories of the week I spent with her and Thembi, repping at the adidas football tournament in Ayia Napa. My respect, however, lay with her ability to hustle; starting her own company, juggling her degree in maths with partying, making the calendar, taking ethnic models into mainstream media, keeping a smile on her face in spite of the hate and jealousy that came with her lifestyle, success and growing profile. Perhaps If we all spent more time looking at ourselves, we could end up happier before we too depart.

Condolences to all the family - what a beautiful send off. The sun may have set but it's still shining x
