Ben­nie Bekker, mar­ket­ing man­ager of Ma­rine Sea Salt, based in Swartkops, said Maimela’s work had been spot­ted on the in­ter­net and they had im­me­di­ately recog­nised his tal­ent and that he would make the per­fect brand am­bas­sador for their new Light­house line.

“He is shin­ing a light on our proudly PE salt prod­ucts and on the many ex­tra­or­di­nary uses for salt, but most of all, he is shin­ing a light for him­self and the peo­ple of Mabopane.”

Maimela will be the weav­ing his magic on a plat­form palette at the port fes­ti­val at Ma­rina’s 45m² cov­ered ex­hi­bi­tion stand and chil­dren will be able to try their hand with their own salt pile while he is work­ing.

He will be in ac­tion on Satur­day from 11am to 4pm and on Sun­day from 10am to mid­day.
