If you have been in the presence of greatness you will know it as purely as the morning sun which rises over the hills in Paarl. As fresh as the dew on an aloe in the desert on a crisp winters morning, people have fallen to their feet in his mere presence.
Some say he invented dancing. That he once fed the entire Orange Street Engen on one pie and half a Milo shake, at 3am!!
That he creates his clothes, out of sand and metal, and that the Blue Steel was stolen from a rare one night experience in Tiguana where he was seen.
Whatever you do, when you see him, make a plan to take a picture, and send it to me. His aura may floor you, and you may be reduced to the foetal position in the corner after he has touched you.
I was once lucky enough to spend a weekend with him, and my life has never been the same. I’d have to admit that colors were brighter, that food tastes better while he is around.
Indeed, DJ`s turn the music off when he enters the room. They instinctively know his song, and you may hear it 10 times in a row, and it will get better every time you hear it.
When we are in restaurants, his food comes last, because the chef goes home to cook his food where there can be no contamination. When he goes to the movies, he takes mielie seeds with him, and with one movement of the hand, popcorn it is.
Today, we celebrate the launch of Hank, the newest character to the Urban Ninja ensemble.
Now stop staring at the screen…
