'Money is like a penis...' - Muzi Kuzwayo (founder of ad agency Ignitive)

Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.

This week he spoke to Muzi Kuzwayo, an author, professor and founder of full service creative agency Ignitive.

Ignitive is deeply rooted in the township market.

It states its mission as “to make our clients stars” which is why Kuzwayo calls it the “Motown of Advertising”.
