For this year’s Youth Day, the cool people at Flying Fish and City Press decided to gather five of South Africa’s most influential young people and find out what meaningful ways they use their influence. Of course, there had to be a shoot for the spread in the publication – an opportunity to encapsulate the idea of being young, ambitious and enjoying a flavorful life. Luthando ‘LootLove’ Shosha, Kid X, Nomuzi Mabena, Siya Beyile and Trevor Stuurman are the perfect representatives of this idea. Considered to be young pioneers in the Creative and Entertainment industries in SA respectively, they make the City Press and Flying Fish A-list.Thank you to Topshop and River Island for keeping the 5 influencers well styled for the shoot.
