Featured Influencer- Teetee Nteta
When I think of the word influencer, in relation to South Africa, one of the first people that I think of is PR consultant, co founder of The Wknd Social, and writer of fashion blog Teteeiswithme.com, Thithi Nteta.
Thithi, started her blog during a time where blogging was just about putting out content you found inspiring, but she managed to keep up with the times by monetizing this hobby of hers, collaborating with brands such as Witchery, Spitz, DKNY, Pond’s and Rich Mnisi, to name a few…
Thithi makes it to my featured influencer list because she inspires other South African bloggers, including myself, to support and collaborate with as many local brands as possible. While it is really exciting to get recognition from international brands, things are changing in the South African blogosphere, and the demand has shifted to brands that are a little more accessible and express a style that is uniquely African.
Thithi also inspires me because she is not all talk and no action when it comes to shifting the focus to our local brands. In 2012, she added a ShopSA tab to her blog to share with readers all the local spots where she finds her African-made pieces.
Head over to her blog www.teeteeiswithme.com to check out some of her amazing content and also comment below on which local gems you know of.
