Oskido is hiring and you could be a part of his team!
Earlier this month music producer Oskido announced that he will be opening his own Japanese restaurant.
Now, the I Believe hit-maker has some vacancies open for those who want to work for him at his Japanese Restaurant By Oskido at Waterfall Corner in Johannesburg.
In a post on his Instagram page, the producer said he is looking to fill full-time positions for a restaurant manager, chefs, kitchen assistants and waitrons. So, if you’re familiar with Japanese cuisine you stand a good chance of filling one of those positions.
Earlier this year, he caught heat for snubbing the Bulawayo Arts Awards with claims from his label that he was not Zimbabwean. According to him, he had been catching unfair criticism since he started the Kalawa Homecoming gigs.
“I grew up here (Bulawayo). It (Homecoming) was meant to say let’s give back to the community. Remember the people who’re employed are people from here,” he said.
