MoFaya: Going Live Against All Odds

Sibusiso Leope and TV Personality Lerato Kganyago

MoFaya, a game-changing product creating a social impact on local communities…

Whoever said or insinuated that Africans are not capable of coming up with their own products can go ahead and eat their hat, because here we have a proudly African product which also happens to be the first and only 100% black owned energy boosting beverage brand in South Africa.

Let me introduce to you, MoFaya (literally meaning “More fire” in South African street language).

Most people know him as a radio DJ, a club DJ, recording artist, entrepreneur and television presenter- now Sibusiso Leope, popularly known as DJ Sbu, has been making noise about his new energy drink called “MoFaya”. This new, exciting energy drink has been in the making for three years in order to ensure that all the health standards and regulations are met.

The difference with this energy drink is that with every can that is sold, money will go towards educating one child in South Africa. DJ Sbu hopes that MoFaya will take atleast 100 students to university per year as from 2016, creating at least 100 entrepreneurs in each province per year.

This new business venture is in line with DJ Sbu’s commitment to helping disadvantaged children around South Africa. The well-known businessman and media personality gives talks every week to disadvantaged schools around the country, gives bursaries and offers mentorship to deserving learners who don’t come from well-off families. DJ Sbu is one example of an African who did not let his past circumstances determine his future. From the dusty streets of Tembisa, Johannesburg, DJ Sbu rose above his circumstances and created a legacy for himself.

Despite the debacle that took place post the Metro FM Music Awards 2015 held at the Durban ICC, due to him advertising his product on air, he continues to pioneer for his brand.  This is the spirit of an entrepreneur and a hustler.

“…I create solutions. I’m a hard worker. I’m a go-getter. I’m an innovator. I’m a pioneer. A visionary. A game changer. A billionaire under construction. I’m an ENTREPRENEUR…”

mofayaMoFaya was debuted last year in October for tasting and although the big retail outlets are not yet stocking his brand, the energy drink is available at local supermarkets and small businesses in Soweto, Pretoria (Mamelodi), Port Elizabeth, Durban and Zimbabwe (Bulawayo).

MoFaya is perfect for those who are always on the move, those who need that “pick me up” after a long day and those who need to get pumped up for a long day ahead. You’ll feel instantly energised and ready to take on any challenge. DJ Sbu has certainly proved that you can achieve anything with the right attitude, determination and commitment. Impossible is nothing!
