Krept on the topic of Graft winning said, “The impact Graft has been making online-it’s undeniable. He’s won them over; he’s won us over. It’s inspiring to see the journey. I could put him up against the best of the rest and feel that he’s gonna deliver and be level with the mandem. I can’t wait to see what he does with the platform. Welcome to the team. Welcome to the family.

On winning this is what Graft said, “I’m feeling emotional. It means the world to me. From young, I’ve always had dreams to change my life and change my family’s life. That’s why I work so hard.
