Make Money Mondays

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho opens up about money

I grew up with my grandmother; she made the [money] decisions. The buck – literally and figuratively – stopped with her!

Gone are the days when one person in a relationship are doing all the work while the other spends it.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

Not having enough money – to give myself options - scares me.

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 Arabile Gumede (in for Whitfield) interviewed Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho.

Thekisho is best known for his rap career.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

My earliest memory of money was learning to stretch my pocket money [when I was at boarding school].

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

My folks didn’t make money the focal point.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

You can’t rely on one income stream.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

My first investment was my property. Since then I’ve diversified substantially.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

You can’t go wrong with property! But don’t put all your eggs in it.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

My parents really helped me a lot. They paid for my schooling… I don’t pay ‘black tax’.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

The worst money decisions I’ve made were buying my motorbike and cars.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

I like to travel! It’s my thing; it’s how I reward myself.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

If I can control my time; then I think I have enough.

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

I often hear myself say something [about money]; and it’s almost her [grandmother] exact words!

Tebogo "ProVerb" Thekisho

Money gives you options, and that is exciting.
