United Colors of Fashion Inc announces that South African rising TV star, Lunga Shabalala has been appointed as its ambassador in South Africa. Mr. Shabalala has set himself apart from his peers with his zealous nature and a hardworking streak. In under a year, he moved from being a soccer and rugby coach in Durban to one of the most talked about and watched talents on the South African entertainment landscape.

Now a presenter of Selimathunzi the popular variety show on SABC1, Shabalala will use his influence to send the message of UCOF to youths in South Africa and be engaged in the activities of the association.

Mr. Shabalala's value systems resonate with what UCOF is about. He loves life; he embraces worthy causes and through his involvement in TV and fashion as a model is in synch with our mission.

“I am honored to have been chosen as an ambassador of UCOF in South Africa. It has always been my wish to play my part in educating and helping where I can those who are infected and affected by this pandemic. Working with UCOF allows me to witness first hand the damage this disease is doing, but also gives me a chance to be part of a team that's working towards a solution. I look forward to putting minds together with the office in New York and the Soweto Hospice, which is the main beneficiary,” said Mr. Shabalala.

United Colors Of Fashion, Inc. is thrilled to have Mr. Shabalala now as part of the team, and eager to have him assist with touching the lives of those less fortunate at the Soweto Hospice.

“Before selecting Mr. Shabalala as the South African ambassador for UCOF, I have done a plethora of research on him. Based on what I have found, I came to realize he is the perfect person for this position. I believe he shall be a great role model for the youth in South Africa, and an amazing inspiration to our young and gifted participants in the New York Metropolitan area,” said Ciano Clerjuste, President and Chairman of UCOF.

United Colors of Fashion Incorporated (UCOF) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to enlist creative, gifted, and underprivileged aspiring artists in New York who have dreams of being in the fashion industry-arts and giving them the tools to make their dreams come true.
