Ok so we are 1 day late with the next instalment in our Levis and Me project, Andrew was on a plane but he’s back now and here is my next face – Roger Sivuyile Lupuwana. Roger is young and sweet and one of the nicest people I know. He is currently studying to become a creative TV/movie show maker he is also a waiter at The Good Luck Club in-between studying, so if you find him bringing you a twice fried beef you can give him a hello and a high-5.
