RataVaslapa cleans Black Entertainment Awards’ Best Brand category
Founder of the clothing line, RataVaslapa, still doesn’t believe that his brand outshone the rest in the Best Brand category at the launch of the Black Entertainment Awards 2019. Among others in the same category were YFM and Soweto TV. The event was hosted at Uncle Tom’s community centre in Orlando West.
Lerato ‘Moscovitch’ Ramathibela says the win came as a surprise: “It hasn’t sunk in yet. Even when the name, RataVaslapa was announced as the winner, I didn’t jump to receive the award. A lady who was seated next to me gave me a nudge before I could go to receive the award.” He says he was expressionless with disbelief.
Lerato has quit his 9-5 job to focus on growing his brand even bigger. He started to effectively sell his clothing items in 2012.
The aim of this event, is to recognize and uplift talents in Gauteng.
