Hakim Malema is a multi-disciplinary artist who crosses over between music, visual art and has now added clothing design to his set of skills with his involvement in emerging fitness brand Method Mode.
Hakim’s everyday pursuit is to achieve the highest level of human experience through the body by eating well, drinking plenty of water, exercising, training and competing.
“I believe that in the body lies the arena of the unknown and that through it, the tapestry of life unfolds.”
A competitive sprinter throughout his school career, Hakim was a regular on the track participating in the 100m, 200m, hurdles, long jump and high jump.
“I'd stayed away from longer distances until sneakers and social running culture made running long distances appealing to me. Since then I've made some really awesome friends through running, and building a team with people is inspiring. I also found Eliud Kipchoge and Nike's attempt to run a sub two-hour marathon earlier this year extremely motivating.”
