Sanele Makinane walks away with the biggest prize on television.

Twenty-two-year old Sanele Makinane has been named the winner of The Big Break Legacy and walked off with South African reality television’s biggest prize, a R5-million investment into his business.

Makinane beat two other entrepreneurs: Jared Pillai, 24, from Pretoria and Tsepiso Makhubedu, 19, from Nelspruit, Mpumalanga for the top prize. All three received a car from Chevrolet for making it to the final episode.

The prize money will be invested in Makinane’s business, Apex Commercial Solutions, which through an initiative called Mzanzi Digital uses information communications technology systems to help those in previously disadvantaged communities in the North West. He intends spreading the technology through municipalities, the district and eventually through the province and the country. “I want to help make the country digital.”

His strategy has been to dream big, but start small. “One must lay a firm foundation for growth in order to manage your own growth. Also you must spare time to get to know your business before appointing others to do work for you. You must master all the tasks.”
