Lynnette’s Interview


  • Q: If you were to define yourself in 3 words as a model, what would those words be?
  • A: Strong, Confident and Fun.
  • Q: What are the adversities of modeling you’ve experienced so far?
  • A: Not everyone you meet will be genuine. Some will only use you for their own benefits. I’ve been one of those who were exploited. And, some of the difficulties I faced were people judging me of taking nudes, not really knowing my reasons for doing that; however I just kept reminding myself of the end goal of doing it all. Here I am still growing strong and have conquered all the critics.
  • Q: What can we expect from you in the near future?
  • A: Expect a vocalist and a graduated thespian.
  • Q: What has been your motivation to keep you going thus far?
  • A: Being grounded and independent of all adversities that I have experienced. And the trust I have invested to the Mighty Lord, with Him everything is possible!!
  • Q: How can you describe the structure of your recently initiated team “Elite Entertainments”? What are you guys willing to achieve?
  • A: It is a team formed by 5 individuals. We created this out of a burning desire and passion. We all come from different backgrounds, with different aspirations. We have the drive, we aim high and we are willing to grow together and become one of the greatest teams that SA has ever had.
  • Q: Judging from your work ethic, where do you see yourself in a decade from now?
  • A: In a decade from now I will be having my own international agent. Therefore, I want to nurture and help the next generation reach their dreams. Plus, I want to give my parents everything they’ve ever wished for in life.
  • Q: Who are your role models, and why are they inspiring you so much?   
  • A: My role models are my parents. They have brought me this far with the little that they had. They still have my back up to this day. I’m more than grateful to still have them both.
  • Q: Aside from the modeling career, what more are you willing to expand to with your talents?
  • A: Talent on its own isn’t enough. I reckon working extra hard and getting educated. Anyway, I want to invest more time in Music and Drama since I trust that’s where my authentic talents are. My duty is to unleash them and put my God given gifts to life. That would be my appreciation to Him.
  • Q: Where can your fans connect with you easier?
  • A: Catch me on: Instagram > lynn_ledikwa, Facebook > Lynn Ledikwa and Twitter > Lynn_Ledikwa
  • Q: Any motivating message to all those who are trying to make their way into the modeling world?
  • A: Keep patient and persistent. Know where you are headed in life and never look back because that’s only a step back. There’ll always be opinions and critics, however use them to grow you and not destroy you. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!!!


Introduction to Lynnette Ledikwa

Elite Entertainment has been gifted with a precious treasure that occupies an irreplaceable position, Lynnette Ledikwa. It has been our greatest pleasure to have met this wonderful and yet unique personality in our journey. Nevertheless, the blueprint of this short blog is to give a formal introduction and welcome to her Excellency MS Ledikwa as a part of our team member.

Our first meeting came with an excitement. Hence, it came with no vague surprise when Lynnette spoke her mind that she has a reasonable amount of experience of how her work of line works; we then recognized that she is a true fast becoming icon of independent women of her generation. Her creativity and skillfulness to deliver work is outstanding. Therefore, when the management took an analysis of her, we recognized that we do not only have a business associate. Instead, we have a true leader that the society at large can learn from.

Her Excellency has been over productive to Elite Entertainment thus far. She now is part of the family and is protected and taken care of as a brand. Her aura shows no signs of vulnerability. This means she is a quite powerful lady, and that makes our workflow less hard. Bear in mind that she is working on an environment that is very male dominated. However, that is not an excuse of her to underperform or not succeed. In fact, we are noticing that she has accepted the reality aspect of it, and she is doing more than fine.

Expect nothing but professionalism on this extremely versatile and talented individual who is willing to make the world a better place. Follow her on: Instagram > lynn_ledikwa, Facebook > Lynn Ledikwa and Twitter > Lynn_Ledikwa
