“I have been in the Internet cafe business before but I quit in 2013 because I did not see growth. I then opened my own business in 2014. It was formal and registered,” he said.
“I was business-minded from a very young age. I was studying at TUT (Tshwane University of Technology) doing my National Diploma but I dropped out during my third year, however, that didn’t stop me from pursuing my dreams”, said Mthi.
Asked who or what inspired him, Mthi said he is his own inspiration.
“Truly speaking I inspire myself. Mthi’s Photography and Project is a business that mostly works with corporates but basically, we don’t limit ourselves because we also work with individuals who trust our work. It’s a matter of people believing in us”, he explained.
They also open opportunities for the young people within the community.
“In conclusion, let’s forget about the government, let’s sacrifice, forget about designer assets and liquor because they are forever there but opportunities such as this are limited”, he concluded.
