We recently caught up with MTV Shuga’s Mohale Motaung to chat about his childhood, favourite television shows, his beauty company and where he sees himself in the next five years.
What were your favourite televisions shows growing up?
The Big Bang Theory, Wizards Of Waverly Place, Hannah Montana, and The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody.
Where did you grow up and what were your dreams as a child?
I grew up in Kibler Park, south of Johannesburg. I had always dreamt of owning my own company and hiring young people, being on Forbes’s Under 30, and travelling the world.
You own a beauty company called Glam Troupe; tell us a bit about that.
Glam Troupe is my little baby; we offer comprehensive matric dance packages to matriculants. We noticed that preparing for your matric dance isn’t the easiest and parents always want to avoid it. We then came up with packages that include things like make-up, hair, nails, attire, shoes, a photographer and a car. We’ve packaged these into three different options to suit all LSMs in South Africa. We do the same for graduations as well.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I will be 29; I would have completed my degree, worked more on my acting career, been on Forbes’ Under 30, expanded my business into the rest of Africa, and worked towards opening my second or third business.
