I remember when I met Itesh at MCR radio station in Hamanskraal when I had an interview scheduled there, she was one of the co-presenters on that radio show. We immediately connected not only as colleagues but like siblings. We shared our future plans and also went to the studio where she was busy recording. I also had the opportunity of booking her as a speaker at one of my workshops.
Today I’m proud and honored to be profiling Itesh’s career. She’s been busy working on her debut album, she’s a stylist of note and has worked on many TV shows such as Rhythm City, and overall she’s an entrepreneur. Before I jinx this interview, do check the Fresh Box to find out more about Itesh’s hustle and future plans.
