Kim Jayde ‘Kickin’ it’ with second season


MEDIA personalit­y Kim Jayde’s passion for fashion, sneakers and entertainm­ent has helped her land a second season of her YouTube show, Kickin’ it with Kim Jayde.

After a year of eager anticipati­on, the season première officially drops on YouTube this evening at 6pm.

Kickin’ It With Kim Jayde, which premièred late last year is a show that features renowned personalit­ies in the entertainm­ent industry speaking about their love for sneakers, which lets us into their personal lives as individual­s, artists and entreprene­urs.

The show is directed, produced and hosted by the multi-award winning TV host, business entertainm­ent entreprene­ur and MTV Base presenter Jayde, who is the founder of KJ Production­s which produces the show.

The new season of Kickin’ it with Kim Jayde is expected to bring together some of the top sneaker lovers in the industry, while shining a new light on some of our favourite celebritie­s and tastemaker­s.

The season première stars special guests such as recently awarded 2021 Best Freshman of the Year at the SA Hip Hop Awards Blxckie.

“We learn more about the Durban-born artist’s career and hear him answer fun questions about his first kiss, first sneakers and how he won his first rap battle,” said Jayde.

Other guests included marketing guru King Aya, platinum-selling artist Shekinah and renowned DJ Doowap, “Big Flexa” Costa Titch, to name a few.

Jayde said it took a year to save up and produce a high-quality show.

Adding to the excitement, KJ Production­s has partnered with Buy My Sneaker to give away not one, but five new pairs of sneakers to the value of over R25 000 throughout the season.

“I’m so proud of how this show turned out. Last season we gained organic press in countries all over the continent which proved the audience’s desire for an authentic sneaker show,” said Jayde.

“It’s a fresh show about sneaker culture, with superstar guests. What’s not to love?” asked Jayde.

A few weeks ago the Zimbabwean-born star took to Instagram to talk about her encounter with body shaming and xenophobic attacks.

“I feel like I’ve heard it all. From being body-shamed and called fat, to being called a whore, to xenophobic messages telling me to “get the f**k out of SA & go back to Zimbabwe. Because I am a public figure, so I’m supposed to take it? I am a real person with real feelings and words hurt,” responded Jayde to the attacks.
