It’s a brand new week and the Arch Bishop of radio, DJ Sbu came back with more motivation, inspiration and that undeniable hustler’s ambition right here on Massiv Metro.
Today, we were joined by entrepreneur and founder of Makoya Adhesives, Thabiso Mkase.
He manufactures heavy duty glue that has a unique compound that ensures easy use of the glue so that you can avoid having a messy table or working surface when using the glue.
Thabiso spoke on his journey of becoming an entrepreneur and said he didn’t finish school because of challenges that he was facing at the time, but later went back to school to finish.
Of his journey in entrepreneurship, he said “it was difficult for me when I started because of my background – I worked as a petrol attendant for 6 months”.
He then went on to work in a factory, and he recounts that that’s where and when he saw a black person becoming a millionaire in front of his eyes and knew that it was actually possible for someone like him; someone who did not have an easy background. He says he then asked the Lord to give him an idea that could possibly make him a millionaire one day, too, and that is when Makoya Adhesive was born.
The product has grown and is now available nationwide. You can hear more of Thabiso’s story here:
We also had Advance Africa, with Victor Kgomoeswana – our resident Africa expert who fills us in on the current socio-economic and business developments of the greater African continent.
Today, he let us in on what is happening with Ethiopia’s government and the latest technological advancements. The Ethiopian government has now allowed access to over 260 previously blocked websites. Allowing Ethiopian citizens to access these news outlets is seen as positive change and that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is committed to delivering his promise to end the censorship of the developmental press. He also shed some light on what is happening with De Beers in Namibia as far as the transparency of the diamond mining process.
We wrapped the show with food from Ndash food concepts on What’s for Breakfast?
