    10: Chef Tips With Lesego Semenya

    10: Chef Tips With Lesego Semenya

    In this instalment of #AndilesTake, I catch up with my mate, Chef Lesego Semenya, a year and a half or so after he first shared the vision for his LesDaChef fine dining brand with me.

    I'm fascinated by the level of focus and intentionality this Soweto-native, and Prue Leith Chefs Academy graduate in Centurion brings to his culinary hustle, and I take great pleasure in celebrating the fact that since we last spoke on mic, Les has been named one of the Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans, dubbed a rising star by House & Leisure, appointed consulting chef to a number of leading luxury gourmet food and drink brands, recruited as resident culinary expert at a handful of South Africa’s leading radio stations and tv networks, extended his reach on social media and now serves as a judge on SABC 3’s prime time tv show, Top Chef South Africa.

    That said, I consider his greatest achievement to be the fact that despite all the success he's enjoyed, Les remains as genuine and down-to earth as when I first met him at a killer gourmet home cook-out he hosted six odd years ago.

    9: Look Up #livingtruthfully

    9: Look Up #livingtruthfully

    During a recent trip on a dodgy Greyhound coach to visit family in Zimbabwe, I learned some rather poignant lessons about the importance of looking past the trivial business of daily life, and peered past man-made hype to what really matters.

    Shout out to Africa's busiest border post. It's all love, Beitbridge!

    8: Delusions feat. Toro Orero

    8: Delusions feat. Toro Orero

    This episode of #AndilesTake explores the importance of delusion, and it features the live wire that the Toro Orero, a Nigerian-born Managing Partner of Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm, DraperDarkFlow.

    One of the key things Toro and his partners at DraperDarkFlow look for in a startup founder that they might invest in is a sense of delusion. He believes that being a little nuts is often a good indicator that someone has what it takes to change the world.

    I'm totally with it!

    BONUS: In Conversation With Andre Blaze Henshaw

    BONUS: In Conversation With Andre Blaze Henshaw

    As promised in Episode 7 of the #AndilesTake podcast, this is the uncut conversation I (Andile Masuku) had with Nigeria's inimitable Andre "Blaze" Henshaw.

    Andre is easily one of Africa’s leading broadcasting talents. While he's probably most famous for his work on Nigerian public radio, and hosting primetime extravaganza’s like Nigeria’s Got Talent on television, it’s his work on the My Africa podcast (available on iTunes) that got me sensing a sort of kinship with him.

    He launched the podcast at a time when his media career was soaring, and the whole podcast scene on the continent wasn’t exactly vibing. Even now, podcasts are far from being mainstream commercial platforms, so like me, he certainly didn’t get into podcasting for the money.

    In this conversation, Andre and I chat about a whole range of topics, like how he became a hip-hop head, and what he means when he calls himself a "creative anthropologist". I also got him to explain where his trademark vocal style comes from, and why he's so taken with podcasting as a medium.
