Kiki: It is such an honour to finally meet the man behind all the master pieces that get us talking all the time. I am a fan of your work because you are unpredictable.
Lebo: Oh, thank you so much. I am humbled.

Lebo: Hahahahaha, yes we do go all out.
Kiki: I promise you I am one of those that starts picturing it in my head. What made you decide to start this type of business?
Lebo: The need to create different kind of tombstones that will give people that exclusivity that sets them apart from the norm.
Kiki: So who comes up with the designs?
