“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Uzalo on this meaningful project,” said Castle Milk Stout Marketing Manager Khwezi Vika. “Ancestor’s Day is a celebration that reminds us to be proud of who we are and where we come from, allowing us to honor our roots while embracing an era of African renaissance. Their dedication to telling authentic African stories aligns perfectly with our values, and we couldn’t think of a better platform to share this important message,” Vika explained.

It’s a movement to celebrate our heritage, honour our ancestors, and preserve our cultural traditions for future generations. So, let’s join hands and make this Ancestor’s Day one to remember!
