But then Life Happened and he found himself with no money and no place to live and was left homeless in Hillbrow. Though he faced a harsh reality, Solani refused to be knocked down by fortune’s hand. He was determined to get out of the streets and eventually he made his way back to college to stitch his life back together. Today he’s a refined Designer and owner of the Shaka Xhosa bow ties brand.
He makes very distinctive leather bow ties that are sold from the Johannesburg all the way to London
