9 Brilliant South Afri-CAN men

2017-01-12 11:14

We all know what it feels like to have a “light bulb” moment – that lightning-quick strike of momentary inspiration that plants the seed of genius and sends us racing to the whiteboard.  Inspired by an article by Editor Nkosiyati Khumalo, my recent VLOG profiles 9 Brilliant South Afri-CAN men who have used their “light bulb” moment to anchor, guide and fuel them to achieve their goals and become trailblazers in their respective industries.

These men have not only overcome immense obstacles to create an extraordinary life, all on their own terms – but they have also redefined what it means to be a man in today’s society! Does a man really need to know how to change a tire? Do we always have to wear suits to work?

From Thought Leader and Advocate for Good Brent Lindeque to Fashion Director and one of  Forbes Africa’s 30 Under 30, Siya Beyile. The list also includes a mix of fearless entrepreneurs, TV Producers, Change-makers, a tattoo artist and an athlete.


Why is this important? For one glaring reason: It’s time for us to start celebrating, sharing and being proud of our very own South African stories. If you’d like to be profiled or know of any ambitious and inspiring South Africans email me: definingdennis@gmail.com or Tweet me @DennisNgango.
