Where it all began
Zikedish evolved from a small video production house called “Great White Creations,” founded by Dawie le Hanie. Dawie re-envisioned the business in 2014 to cater to the needs of a wider variety of clientele and the development of its brands. Zikedish was born. Our founding principles are honesty, hard work, and superior customer service and products. You can read more about our early history in this post.
