South African Football stalwart, Lucas Radebe, will reveal his story in a one-on-one session. He will tell the narrative from his appearances for Bafana Bafana to being the first black South African to captain an English side in the English Premier League.

Fans will get the opportunity to see and mingle with the legend at the event hosted by Johnnie Walker on December 2, 2015 in Johannesburg. Through this exclusive JoyWalkers conversation, Lucas will be sharing how his experiences have helped him engineer his very own nirvana in his work.

Lucas’ positive outlook led to him be a JoyWalker - part of a global campaign by Scotch whisky brand Johnnie Walker called Joy Will Take You Further. Radebe is a JoyWalker alongside a range of other extraordinary people from all walks of life across the globe.

“When I look back on my journey, I learned this: Find your passion, then follow it. No matter what your mom says. Sometimes you lose that passion, like I did in Leeds, but you always get it back,” he says.

Johnnie Walker Global Brand Director Guy Escolme says: “As a brand Johnnie Walker has always stood for progress – it’s been the story of our whisky since our founder John Walker started it all nearly 200 years ago. What two centuries of experience have taught us is that progress doesn’t have to be an endless uphill journey – we can enjoy the steps we take and the more happiness we find in them the more likely we are to achieve our goal. Evidence is confirming a conviction that sits at the heart of our brand: Joy Will Take You Further.”
