We first connected with him on the basketball courts of Soweto. Beyond him being an all-round great guy, what really struck a chord with us is his commitment and passion to uplifting the area he grew up in. Growing up in Soweto in the 1980’s, raised by his mother and grandmother, he’s no stranger to challenges, but his narrative is woven with confidence, positivity, and strong family values, and he’s channelled this in to bringing together communities and uplifting youth through sport.
In the months and years ahead he plans to identify and rehabilitate broken up courts in different areas in order to transform them into safe spaces, and build up a series of tournaments to bring everyone together – such as this month’s Southwest Courtside Day in Soweto. All the while he keeps down a fast paced corporate job, enabling him to build his own side-line businesses around fashion, music and community upliftment.
We’re inspired by Sibu’s commitment to his roots, and vision for the future. We can’t wait to welcome him to the team, and work some magic together.
