Q&A WITH LOOTLOVE

Big dreams, boyfriends and being different!

The only LootLove interview

She’s ridiculously fly and she’s reasons 1 to 100 why we love #WCW, she’s Luthando “LootLove” Shosha and heads up, she’s about to make you love her even more.

Here’s the thing: after reading this interview, you’re either gonna want to date her, make her your bestie, or be her. It’s your pick!

 

Tweet us @FlyingFishSA: who should we interview next?

When you start typing LootLove into Google’s search box it suggests “LootLove Instagram” and “LootLove boyfriend”, so essentially, if people aren’t looking at photos of you and your life, they want to know who you’re dating.

So firstly, are you taken? Secondly, how does it feel to have such constant attention directed towards your personal life?

Hahahaha, is that wassup? No, I am not taken, I’m single. :-)

I find the whole thing really strange, but I guess I signed up for it. It can get quite annoying and tampers with some really important things sometimes but hey, it is what it is, I guess.

You started your career off as a radio DJ in 2009, after six years in the industry what is the most important lesson that you’ve learned? 

Stay true to yourself, stay healthy, put yourself first, and always trust your instinct.

What do you hope to achieve in the next five years?

Lol. So many things, I have really big dreams that I’d rather just work towards in silence and let everyone see once I’m done with the groundwork. Watch this space.

In an interview, you once mentioned that “being different isn’t a bad thing” – what makes you different and how do you celebrate your uniqueness?

I guess I’ve never been afraid to not fit in. I never really felt like I fit into to most spaces so that has forced me to be really comfortable with myself and how I view and do things.

 The thing is, the world tries to convince you that being yourself is wrong, and that’s pure trash. Do you whatever you is.

It’s a typical Friday night at 22:30 – where are you and what are you doing?

Lol. I’m heading home. At that point, all I want to do is take my makeup off. Aaaaaaaaand then on some days I just go home to freshen up and hit the club.

We love your Tumblr by the way! Do you have any favourite Tumblr accounts that we should check out?

Aww!! I need to update it more often! Thanks guys, I do… Anything fashion, architecture and then there is Nova’s page – she’s a pure gem. I love her.

Fans and haters alike recognized your unmatched style. Have you always been interested in fashion? Who are your fashion crushes?

"="" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;"> I genuinely got it from my momma. Her love for clothing is what made me step up.

Clothes are wonderful… You have to enjoy them and you get that chance every day, sometimes twice in a day. Dress up party much?

What was the first thing you did when you woke up this morning?

Looked at the time to see if I had more time to sleep. Lol.

Spill the details! We want to know what you do on a typical Monday.

Nothing… Mondays are my off days. :-)

You studied Interior Design before winning the Live AMP presenter search. Does that mean your current digs looks like something out of a magazine? What’s your most prized belonging?

Hahaha! Sort of, kinda, maaaaaaaaybe. My most prized possession is a painting I got from a friend for my birthday. The second painting I’ve ever received as a gift, the first ever was from my mom, so it’s quite a fave and it was bought in my hometown, so it’s the best gift I’ve received in a while.

Who is the last person you spoke to on the phone?

My mom. I definitely speak to her the most.

If we wanted to impress you, where would we take you?

Let’s go to LA? :-)

What’s your favourite quote?

“The whole world steps aside for the man who knows where he is going.”

Which song do you currently have on repeat?

Kid x ft. Ginger Trill – “Fire Drill”.
