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

This week Ray White (in for Whitfield) interviewed Nomsa Mazwai, General Manager at Soweto Theatre.

Mazwai is the former Head of Communications at the National Stokvel Association of South Africa.

She is responsible for the day-to-day activities at the Soweto Theatre and maintaining world-class standards in customer and client services.

In 2013 Mazwai won “Best African Alternative Music Album” at South African Music Awards.

Mazwai has a Master’s Degree in International Political Economy and Development from Fordham University in New York City.

Mazwai’s first job was as a waitress at a restaurant called Rapsody’s in Rivonia, where she earned a R250 tip from the very first table she served!
