Media Release | Masego ‘Maps’ Maponyane x Lunga Shabalala | JOOP! Homme Brand Ambassadors























He is a Real Man that lives in the now. He is charming with a real sense of who he is. He wears pink, and that gives him sex appeal. He wears it like no one does; after all pink is the only colour to wear when you are confident. This is the man that this timeless and daring fragrance has been looking for to represent Joop! Homme in South Africa as their Ambassador.

The contest has been narrowed down to two finalists; Lunga Shabalala and Maps Maponyane, who will be battling it out over the next few weeks to gain as much support as they can from the South African public, in the hope of being named The Joop! Homme fragrance Brand Ambassador in South Africa.  The contest will test their physical and mental strength, as well as incorporating some fun challenges that will reveal these two men’s seductive side.

“Lunga and Maps both embody what JOOP! is looking for in its South African Ambassador. They carry their accomplishments, at such a young age, with enviable ease. They’re easy going guys that ooze the confidence and appeal that characterises men who wear the JOOP! Homme fragrance all over the world. We couldn't have hoped for better contestants to present to the South African public”, says Joop! Marketing Director Charlotte Le Carpentier.

Admired for his impeccable style, good looks and sex appeal, Maps Maponyane somehow manages to stay charmingly humble. This versatile model/presenter has recently launched his own clothing range and added “fashion designer” to his impressive resumé. His sense of style has landed him on GQ’s Best Dressed list and his hot body guaranteed him the title of Cosmopolitan’s Sexiest Man. South Africa’s latest “it boy” is more than just a pretty face.

“It’s hard to not take a step back and pause when an opportunity to represent an international brand of such stature comes your way. I’m up against a great competitor but will Lunga win this? That’s up to the South African public to decide but I want this”, Maps quipped.

It’s easy to see why Lunga Shabalala is considered to be one of the sexiest men in South Africa. Underwear model, TV presenter and radio personality; he exudes sex appeal with his intelligence, good looks and playful charm. As the former local face for Calvin Klein underwear and presenter of the popular SABC 1 show Selimathunzi, Lunga has achieved celebrity status. This charismatic, all round entertainer, has it all.

“I’ve got this! Competition’s always good and I’ve learnt to always have a healthy respect for my fellow competitors. I’ve also learnt to be in it to win it! The South African public will decide who The Ultimate Joop! Homme Brand Ambassador will be”, Lunga added.

As the Joop! Homme Brand Ambassador, ONE of these gentlemen will be expected to interact with all South Africans and it is thus up to the South African public to help us choose The Ultimate Joop! Homme Brand Ambassador… Who will it be? Lunga or Maps.
