Motlagomang Malesa known as DJ Bum Jive, co-founder of Mamelodi Models Agency made his start with 25 models and still has bigger plans for the Agency. Mamelodi Model Agency started running in June 2016.
Most of his models are based in Mamelodi but some are from Soshanguve, Soweto and Johannesburg. “I want to help prevent young people from going on streets, drugs, blessers and keep them busy while they are earning”, said Motlagomang.
The best innovative Mams young man takes his models for business lecturers where they gain skills that will benefit his other businesses apart from the agency. “I don’t want them to just be models but business men and women to gain skills, be innovating and make a living out of it”, said Dj Bum Jive.
Malesa said he want his company to get as far as it can “in space” he said, he wants to see his company helping others to get opportunities as well as being in partnership with 100 companies in the next few years. I call this dreaming tremendously!
