The short film director, Garth Von Glehn had this to say about the short when interviewed by we-are-awesome.com:
"[The] Bright colours, bold clothes and a quirky aesthetic, making the film truly Sho Madjozi".
Sho, understands how to stand true to her roots and yet still manage to break any industry rules.
Madjozi is manifesting her Pan-African dreams the right way and her success has coincided with a pivotal moment in not only South African pop culture, but also with a larger trend of youth-scripted narratives.
And with all that influence, it would weird if the rising star didn't make it all the way to the top, as she's been featured on the VogueWorld 100 List.
According to the global publication, the 100 List is a compilation of "a group of fearless, talented individuals who have captured our attention of late and are poised to transform style, beauty, and culture globally in the months to come."
And if Vogue says it, it's gospel.
The trailblazer has used fashion to powerful effect, showcasing Xitsonga culture and defining pop culture through focusing on the importance of heritage, in a modern context.

Her fans eagerly awaited her anticipated partnership with Edcon last year, as the baby-faced twenty-something was set to launch her first clothing line. The unique range focused on three lifestyle themes: Chill, Play and Party. Her line has hit twenty-two Edgars Fashion stores, Mzansi wide.
Trickshot is on Madjozi’s 13 track, critically acclaimed debut album “Limpopo Champions League”, which celebrates her and her Tsonga culture. The song ‘KONA’ , in which Sho Madjozi sings that Tsonga people belong everywhere, is an exhilarating affirmation of her Tsonga culture, while the lively track ‘Don’t Tell Me What to Do,’ is fun and talks about being a carefree African girl. Acclaimed Nigerian artist YCee is featured on party track ‘Wakanda Forever’.
