What does it mean to be entrepreneurial? We bring you incredible young people from across the country that are innovating, impacting, and disrupting their space for a better country and world. They are entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, entertainers and academic trailblazers and they are here to share their journey and tell us how they have been entrepreneurial.

Once he graduated, he continues as a successful voice-over artist. More famous and certainly more travelled than Weza himself has to be his voice.

These include brands such as the South African Music Awards, British Broadcasting Commission (BBC), Nandos and Woolworths.
