[LISTEN] From making hip-hop beats to heading the National Stokvel Association

Mizi Mtshali shares his story in this week's Friday Profile.

Before he could narrow down his interests, National Stokvel Association of South Africa CEO Mizi Mtshali dabbled in nearly 15 different projects - from music to fashion, all at the age of 21.

Between exploring his many talents Mtshali worked with the likes of South African hip-hop artist Stogie T and pursued beat making and also became one of the youngest editors of the popular Hype magazine.

Having had experience in TV production, marketing, advertising, journalism and more, Mtshali says all the different skills he has gathered over the years have become very relevant in his current role.

I draw a lot from everything in order to do what I do currently.

Mizi Mtshali, CEO - National Stokvel Association of South Africa

I think for me, I have always been interested in sub-cultures and specific constituencies. I have always looked into a certain group of people that have a specific goal in mind and sought to solve problems.

Mizi Mtshali, CEO - National Stokvel Association of South Africa

The National Stokvel Association is central to a constituency and, naturally, I was attracted to what is this thing called a stokvel? To get a chance to look at it from a bird's eye view and understand the movement of cash and how people come together.... how this machine comes together, this fascinated me.

Mizi Mtshali, CEO - National Stokvel Association of South Africa

The reason why people come together as stokvels is because they have been excluded from the system or economy. There is no access to finance and access to financial services so an alternative financial system has been created and adopted by people. Right now 11-million people in South Africa are part of stokvels.
