Andile Ncube re­veals his fresh, cool at­ti­tude

Sowetan - - Lifestyle -

Me­dia is a high-in­ten­sity en­vi­ron­ment. How do you stay calm and dry un­der pres­sure?

I al­ways stay calm and dry. I’m the José Mour­inho of life. I know that what­ever will be will be and what won’t, won’t. So, I don’t stress about things. I’m just calm and cool all the time. What Shield does for me is add that ex­tra layer of con­fi­dence. As far as stay­ing calm and dry goes, they should put my face on the bot­tle.

De­cem­ber is known as a month when peo­ple let them­selves go. How do you stay fit and fresh for 31 Satur­days?

I don’t let my­self go much. I don’t drink al­co­hol or sug­ars. I do yoga. Peo­ple talk about sum­mer bod­ies, but I don’t think you should train or try to get a cer­tain body for a par­tic­u­lar time. I think you should live a healthy life, rather than have a need to fit into a bikini dur­ing a par­tic­u­lar time.

Do you have any ‘sum­mer bod­ies’ fit­ness tips for us?

Lol. Look, I think fake it till you make it. Breathe in for all your pic­tures: what­ever it takes to look good on the ’gram.

Has Shield ever helped you out of an awk­ward sit­u­a­tion?

I never let it get too funky. I keep one de­odor­ant in my car and an­other in my bag, so as soon I feel a lit­tle un­com­fort­able, I put some on. I play sev­ena-side foot­ball and I don’t al­ways have time to go home, shower and then go look­ing for food. From foot­ball, I’ll get in the car and go wher­ever to get food, then go home. Now imag­ine sweat­ing from foot­ball and go­ing to a res­tau­rant. It can get a bit tricky. So, I al­ways get into the car, grab which­ever deo I have, and then go. That works for me.

Which Shield vari­ant is your favourite?

I mix it up often, but I think it would have to be the Shield In­vis­i­ble Fresh. I like that. It doesn’t have a strong scent, per se, and it blends well with my nat­u­ral pheromones, which is im­por­tant to me. It keeps me dry and pro­tected – and there’s zero stains.

Me­dia per­son­al­ity Andile Ncube has been steam­ing up our air­waves for longer than most of us can re­mem­ber. In that time, he’s rarely let us see him sweat. We caught up with him to find out how he keeps cool

Which Shield do the ladies en­joy most on you?

I do use the Shield In­vis­i­ble Fresh a lot, so I would have to say that is the one. It is im­por­tant to me to not only not have bad odour, but also to smell fresh, while still a lit­tle nat­u­ral. It’s not a put-on cologne kind of smell. I’m a Dur­ban boy, so I like to smell as if I’ve just come off the beach all the time.

If you had a su­per­power what would it be and why?

It would be the abil­ity to end poverty: to get ev­ery sin­gle per­son in life start­ing off on an equal foot­ing. What they do with that is up to them, but what I would want is to be able to cre­ate a sit­u­a­tion where we are all full and all dressed, and all come from homes where we can wash and have a warm bed to sleep in. From there, it could be truly up to us what we do in life. Brought to you in as­so­ci­a­tion with Shield
