So what’s an elemential well being?
Basically, a human being has a sense of wellness inside and out of them. The type of well being I am is composed of many elements, which is how I conned the term of being elemential.

Why did you hate matric at school?
I felt locked in the “system”, I never liked the classes and I always felt that it limited my creativity and expression.
Who are the ideal guests for your 23rd birthday?
Whenever it comes, it shall be just a few friends (Not more than 12), good home cooked meal and wine with a lot of music, too much music actually. And conversation, lot of that good talking…
Who is your celebrity crush on?
Ah man! (Haha) Ummm, Estelle. Especially with her goofy teeth and dark complexion and that structure, did I just say that?
Besides Adidas, what other brands are super-legendary?
It depends on the scenery, for me as a complex dude I’d preferably say the following do it for me
2) Nike SB (SB only)
3) Hello Kitty
4) Sony PlayStation
You’d rather draw, skate or do anything else besides deal with racism? Explain please.
Racism is a matter of the different races to actually work their issues out and live in peace. If one or other race can’t be tollerant and forgiving than I might as well give up on racists (Whether Black, White, Indian etc…) and focus on the world. The world is bigger than racism.
What do you think we need to do to sort out this confused world full of tough times?
Sort out the Ignorant people, lazy people and biased people.
What is your best film in each of these categories:
Kung fu, Sci Fi and Animation
Kung-fu: Enter The Dragon (Bruce Lee)
Sci-fi: The Terminator 2
Animation: Spirited Away
What the hell were you doing at an Afrikaaner sokkie jol?
I was having a lekker jol haha! Nah was showing them how to operate the sound system.
What did you think about the Afrikaaner sokkie jol?
It was nice. It showed us the gap between the races in our country. Also showed us how the majority of black ethnicity still believe that tertiary education is the best way to get rich whilst they end up working for someone who didn’t even go to school.
