Siphamandla Nkosana ( The Prince ) Dlamini is the name. My white friends call me Dapper and izinja zase Kasi ( my boys in eKasi ) call me International Pantsula.

I have 8 years experience in this media game. 3 of those good years is photography and the other 5 in the advertising industry as a copy-writer , account executive and account manager.

I am very passionate about my work. I am a Black Renaissance man hence I do strategy, copy-writing, part time modeling , thought leadership ,client management and new business development. I have worked with a lot of amazing brands ranging from FMCG, Beverages, Telecommunications, Broadcast channels, Financial institutes, Mobile & Technology, Wellness & Fitness, Fashion and Retail.


I also run my own online Magazine called Dapper Gamers Style Journal that focuses on promoting township dandies and building local South African content. We are officially launching in a few years. The mag also has a grooming section called Kasi Grooming Club.

With South Africa having the highest rate of rape, women and children abuse cases. We decided to have an activation for Kasi Grooming Club, and the whole idea is to give men a platform to discuss issues they normally won't discuss in society.

The sole purpose of this club was inspired by the contemporary concept of grooming modern men in eKasi. Masculinity in the 21st century is constantly redefined, that said as men we are consciously making an effort to become better role models in society and therefore have developed a culture of raising self-awareness amongst men. We aim to groom the modern men internal and external.
