Hearing what Scoop had to say about the entertainment industry in South Africa is a lesson well learnt. After having been in the game since the early 2000s, Scoop knows a thing or two.
"I call myself a representer," he said, "'cause a presenter is really like a cardboard ship. It's fickle, but if you are representing, knowledge is key and when I worked at [the TV show] Street Journal, it was really good for me. Because Maria [McCloy] and Dzino, who ran Rage, were journalism students from Rhodes [University], and they instilled in me that you are so dope naturally, you just have to remember that journalism is what you doing. You not here to be cool, that is a bonus. But if you really wanna be dope, you must be smart."
You heard it from the main man himself, you gotta be smart to make it and ever smarter to keep making it!
One thing that unfortunately didn’t come up was Scoops ex-fiancée. The drama has been blazing and peeps were really hoping someone would bring it up. Maybe next time.
