Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Block starters bring entrepreneurs together to create a hub of innovation and resource sharing, and through their extensive network of investors, they take startups to market. Their network reach extends as far as Silicon Valley and Shanghai.
I was hanging out with my friends and discussing the first half of the year. Things we failed to accomplished and relationships. It was all over the place but you’ll enjoy it.
While I was in Johannesburg, I got lucky to meet Matt Brown. An entrepreneur and one of the top Podcasters in South Africa right now. I’ve been looking forward to meet this man to talk about podcasting, marketing etc.
A friend of mine Jonny Eaglefeather connected us and BOOM! It happened in a day. You see the power of networking?
Right from the beginning, I was a student in this conversation, all I could do was listen, take notes and ask questions.
Matt Brown is an entrepreneur, speaker and the founder of the global media platform the Matt Brown Show.
He is also the CEO of Digital Kungfu, a strategic business consultancy that specializes in helping companies accelerate innovation and disrupt traditional markets by enabling them with new ways to do business that serve their customers more effectively and responsively.
I know you’ll enjoy this.
I recently went to Namibia and attended the Namibian Annual Music Awards 2017 where I met Gazza and his team. I watched him win awards that night and the next morning, we recorded this podcast.
Gazza, is one of the most commercially successful and best selling recording artists in Namibia.
Since the entrance into the Namibian music scene, Gazza has worked his way up to become the most commercially successful artist in Namibia. He has also become a firm favorite in Namibian households with the young and old alike and has embarked on tours that have expose him to the rest of Africa and the world. He has been well accepted and is a firm favorite with Channel O, a DStv channel, where his work and life is regularly showcased.
His music can be defined as a mix of several influences namely Kwaito, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop and his lyrics are about the township life. His sharp lyrics reflect the intricacies of Namibian life and strike a familiar chord with Namibians from all walks of life, young and old.
To date, he has released over 10 albums, all of which have contributed to making Gazza the best selling recording artist of all time in Namibia.
