When you bring a poet, a jock, an idealist and a speaker together, you get Mayihlome Tshwete. A product of the changing times, Mayi, like his peers, lives a multidimensional existence, which is no longer a life path but a lifestyle.
Dubbed the slash generation, these individuals live a life between slashes – work / play / hobby / desires – and know that real fulfilment comes from realising all of their talents.
Rémy Martin recognises this generation of men and salutes them. These are men who are not defined by one thing that they do, but all that they do. Those who meet new people, go to new places and try new things. Those who live many lives.
Known for his role as a slick and smooth-talking government spokesperson, Mayi has built his career in communications. But there’s more to him than initially meets the eye. He is a published poet, dabbles in political analysis, and is a painting and writing enthusiast. And if that wasn’t enough, he considers himself an idealist and activist for change.
It may sound exhausting just reading all of that, but as a Rémy Martin man, Mayi takes it all in his stride. He’s got this. We like how he puts it: “You are a product of your environment. The more diverse it is, the more empowered you are. I have taken inspiration from a number of different lives and encompassed them within my own.” – Mayihlome Tshwete.
SPEAKER / IDEALIST / POET / JOCK
Why be one thing when you can be many.
You only get one life. Live them.
