Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane is the founder of Showlove – South Africa’s longest running entertainment consultancy and hip hop events company.
In fact, Showlove is many things to many people. Under its umbrella there is an events company, a media house and a music label. In Motsoane’s words, Showlove are the “creators of cool”. Motsoane has certainly played a role in raising the bar when it comes to local hip hop, street fashion, and pop culture.
In 2012, as the former manager of top local musician, AKA, Motsoane took the title of King of Gauteng at the South African Hip Hop Awards. At the same awards show, he was nominated for Promoter of the Year. His latest venture, #CafeTibz, sees Motsoane branching out as a chef, where he recently created a pop-up at Verdicchio in Montecasino.
He’s not afraid to wear many hats and pull rabbits out of every one. There’s no doubt he enjoys creating magic that enthrals and entertains. But if he wasn’t heading up his multi-tiered enterprise, he would have loved to have been an NBA superstar.
Today, he’s a superstar of a different kind and, at 34, he’s got a lot of game left in him yet.
