about Shaun Duwe

Shaun Duwe is a multifaceted entertainment industry mogul, who, arguably, understands how the South African alcohol and entertainment landscape fits together, better than anyone. After nearly three decades in the industry, the man originally from Jozi has an intimate knowledge of all parts of the complexly dynamic organism that is entertainment.

Duwe heads up The Unit, South Africa’s leading entertainment-based holding company, which comprises a collective of enterprises that service all aspects of entertainment: From branded entertainment under Anything Goes, as well as Jet Black and Bella Bookings (full spectrum talent booking agencies) and the festivals he co-founded including Ultra South Africa and the Corona Sunsets Festivals; Shaun has an interest in numerous areas of SA entertainment.

Anything Goes has been the heartbeat of most of his recent projects and includes design, marketing, sponsorship management and strategy for all his brand partners and projects.

In early 2021 Duwe diversified even further, teaming up with Adam Chaskalson and Tyrone Lasarow to form Cascade Holdings, a dynamic, multi-dimensional organisation offering solutions that revolutionise various aspects of the South African drinks industry.

Duwe is also passionate about giving back to the industry which has given him everything and is a board member on Bridges for Music, a local NGO that utilises the power of music to uplift communities through creative education.
