The Friday Stand-In 2016

Sylvester Chauke sets Twitter alight as the #FridayStandin

Founder of DNA Brand Architects and former head of marketing at Nando’s, Sylvester Chauke, was in the hot seat today as the #FridayStandIn host of the Redi Tlhabi Show. He set social media on fire and was widely welcomed. Watch the video to know more about him and what he does.

Previewing the show soon after arriving at Primedia, Chauke couldn’t contain his excitement chatting to Phemelo Ngcobo...

‘The Second Coming out… Homosexuality in the workplace’ was a sensitive topic but was quite the talker:

Sylvester engaged listeners in a hilarious conversation about ruining food by adding condiments and ends off the show with a dance to Beyonce's 'Single Ladies'.

Sylvester hit the ground running and lit up 702 with admiration on Twitter:

Redi Tlhabi had a chat to Sylvester Chauke to reflect on his Friday Stand-in show. He says he 'enjoyed every minute of it.'

He also spoke of his talker about sexual orientation in the workplace.

My highlight is the realisation that we really are a rainbow nation. We all come from such different contexts and ideas and what you think is normal may not be normal to someone else.

Sylvester Chauke, Founder of DNA Brand Architects

I was surprised at the number of calls that came in with people who wanted to share, some not able to get through. I don't know how you guys do it!
