The Cape Town-based star is a man of many talents and the men's hair and grooming establishment is not his first foray into the business realm.

In 2010 he created Y?GEN, which is a one-stop entertainment shop, positioned as an agency representing artistry, events and trade – such as his clothing brand.

Fans, clearly impressed by the musician's latest business enterprise, swarmed his Twitter page with congratulations.

@Trey_DT said: "Well done bro this is top tier", while @byronfuller_za wrote: "Youngsta really making boss moves."
