Robbie Jr, or Rob Mal as he likes to be known, made a grand entrance at the SA Music Awards. The grade 10 school pupil showed up to the ceremony on 2 June wearing designer clothes from Simioni, Christian Louboutin, Breitling, and Dolce & Gabbana.
He told channel24 that his favorite designer label is Gucci. “Gucci, that’s my life. I’ve been that guy since I was young. My dad would even call me Gucci. It’s an authentic brand and it sets a lot of trends. Even right now, gang [many] people copy Gucci.”
Briefly.co.za gathers that he has been criticized by some for using his late father's Instagram account. However, as he told channel24, it was to keep his father's spirit alive. He also didn't see the need to build a following from scratch.
