Young Likho Madolo (18) has made it his mission to help young boys and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds realise their dreams without migrating to big cities like Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Madolo has founded Dream Catcher’s Entertainment, a company he uses as a vehicle to unearth and groom youth talent on various aspects such as modelling, dancing, comedy, filmmaking, creative writing, drama, and music.

The company started in July last year by hosting the Miss and Mr Dream Catcher beauty pageant, which was followed by its official launch in November.

“The aim of establishing the company is to groom and nurture youth talent while also making the youth realise that they do not have to go to big cities to catch their dreams. Our focus is on modelling, but we want to show other young people that modelling is not only about beauty and fashion but building role models whom they can be inspired by,” Madolo said.

Madolo further says they currently have over 30 models on their books.

He says the company will be hosting a modelling competition in July this year, as well as a talent show scheduled for November.

“Through the talent shows and competitions we will be hosting annually, we want to keep the youth away from social ills such as alcohol and substance abuse while also creating a safe space for the youth who may be victims of gender-based violence,” Madolo added.

Young people wishing to join Dream Catcher’s Entertainment can do so by contacting Madolo on 073 533 0743. The number is reachable on calls and WhatsApp messages.

Alternatively, the company can be reached on Facebook as Miss & Mr Dream Catchers, as well as on Instagram as miss_mr_dreamcatchers.

The company grooms and nurtures its models in partnership with Bright Stars Modelling Academy.

Companies sponsoring its initiatives include Dololo Funeral Parlour, Meyiwa Protection, Rhibela Security & Construction, Final Touch Image, Lathie-More Clothing, ZSM Hiring and Alungile Madolo Attorneys.
