Hustle Wednesday: Meet Young Vukile Manzi, Founder of Zillionaire Group of Companies

Hello there, how is your week so far? Mine is okay I believe. If you watch my insta stories then you know it didn’t go as planned but I’m still hanging in there. I woke up in beast mode today because I haven’t had water for a while and the reserve was near extinction but God or the caretaker came through so my laundry is gonna learn today! Other than that, I feel super productive and that it how I feel my whole day should be: Productive.

Sometime I think I’m bias towards the female side of things but since I started this segment for entrepreneurs, I might as well give the achieving men some credit for their hard work.My focus today is on Vukile Manzi, a 24-25 year old South African who is changing the world gadget after gadget, channelling his inner Steve Jobs from Africa to the world. This young man is a force to reckon with and he may just take over the continent with his chain of smart gadgets.

I recall the first time I saw his Facebook Page, I thought, “Wait? He’s from Africa?We are on another level I say.He managed to get a team of engineers to work with him and create this array of laptops, smart phones and smart watches, and he is only 25!”

Wait till you hear about the Ghanaian who has his own line of cars! I mean a clothing line is normal, shoe line pretty good but a range of cars in Africa? The continent is rising!

This young man, like every other entrepreneur, is a serial entrepreneur with a real estate business and forex trading background. I recall during one of his visits to Kenya, albeit Forex, I wanted to attend his seminar but I had not moved to Nairobi yet.I was thinking, “The things I could do with this guy! ” Anyway, long story short, it was no surprise to me when Fawwie, a Kenyan blogger signed a two-year deal worth half a million South African rand. That, is the power of being business minded.Speaking of which, Vukile has understood the use of both the internet and pop culture in growing a brand and that is why his most recent move was collaborating with ‘Distruction Boyz’ in the launch of some Zillionaire products.

I am really curious as to where the Zillionaire brand is headed.For someone so young, thinking outside the box and doing something so extra ordinary is called for during this times when innovation is much appreciated. In his own words, he did not have it easy, just like most entrepreneurs but managed to hustle his way through and make a name for himself. I hope you get inspired to do something remarkable today.
