"My inspiration of going into business was not having much, including shoes. I grew up in an impoverished family. Sometimes relatives and neighbours would give us clothes," Sehoana said.

He said his grandmother taught him how to sew. He said his first sneaker came from old torn pair of sneakers.

"So for this one particular day at school, we were told to wear our private clothes. I didn't have any shoes to wear. So I took an old torn pair of sneakers and I sew it together, using denim and polyurethane". He said

He also said his brand's slogan, "The Township Dream", is meant to raise hopes and inspire youth growing up in poor environments to dream big.

He signed a multi-million deal with Cassper Nyovest who he introduced his sneakers to last year. The deal was to sell Casspers Sneakers in Drip retail stores. Both sneakers are doing well, South Africans love them

That means the Drip brand is growing and paying its employees good. The employee bought himself a brand new BMW. Mr Lekau said he also saw him on property 24,that means he bought or in process of buying a house.
