Tebogo Thobejane recently launched her hair products line, K100 and is thrilled with the fact that her products are now stocked in stores at EGG in Cape Town. The actress spoke to Briefly News about how amazed she is with how far she has come in the life of being a businesswoman.
"Well to tell you the truth being black is something that we are proud of being. It then goes into being a black woman in a male-dominated world. We are always faced with a lot of challenges, including having to work twice [as hard] as men to prove or validate our business," she said.
