The one thing I appreciate from the homies I grew up with, is seeing all the shit we talk about (our dreams being a big part of it) come to fruition. One of those homies is my boy AP or as he is known on television and my basically everyone Aphiwe Mkefe.

When we’re young we dream, we dream out loud and at the age of 18 most of us stop dreaming, out loud that is, and if we don’t, the people around us don’t understand why we’re still dreaming.

Fast forward to today and that dream has manifested itself in the form of The Threaded Man.
