What advice do you give aspiring creatives who look up to you?
I advise you not to be conformists and take advantage of negative criticism to grow and improve. That they study, that they are not lazy or comfortable. That they learn from the great artists, they dominated the technique based on study and practice. Study and practice, perfect each day until you reach the point where you no longer need perfection.
A secret I give you (And this for the first time I do it public):

Something that helps, is having an image always close to the favorite artist, it can be an image of a work of art or a photo of the artist that you like the most. You can have this image in your room or in your studio and they will look at it every day and imagine that they want to be as talented as this artist. They will imagine that they have the same talent or that they want to reach the same level. That artist will be his teacher from now on.  Listen to this advice and do it.

Tumelo Johwa
Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

Waking up in the morning and food. My true passion in life is creating whilst I’m still breathing.I’m the type of person who daydreams during a daydream and reconciles with reality.

 How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I must’ve been 8years old sitting at capitol cinemas in Gaborone. I’m such a dreamer.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

The magical aspect of escapism of your own dimension to create a reality for someone else.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

While I was studying in cape town I fell upon hard times financially, it became a means of survival and blessed me with an opportunity to exercise and nurture my passion. I earned money modelling, acting, hosted my own poetry show and landed a job working on a television show for SABC.

 

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

2007 doing a tv commercial for PEP

What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

My daughter. Before that, it was simply the sense of fulfilment that exercising my passion gives. It is my life’s purpose.

  What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

Doing better. I am obsessed with pushing the envelope.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

They are a non-factor. However, if they are still watching, let’s hope it affects their lives positively.

What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?

To never stop believing in themselves and that “an idea not coupled by action remains just as small as the brain cell that conceives it.”

A Letter to My Leaders

Dear Leaders, I extend to you greetings from the founding fathers of this great continent, Africa, and bring to you a vital message from them: "Africa is sickened". My name is Verchamoh L. Kamara. I may not be as eloquent as Former President Sirleaf was, but my message to you will be as clear as...

After graduating from the Muslim Congress High School, he served multiple roles
as Assistant Secretary of its Alumni Association and also has a functional role at
Build Tomorrow Inc. as a Strategic Director of Finance and Fundraising..

I believe in a world where everybody can live freely and achieve greatness without any obstacles or hindrances.                Verchamoh L Kamara

We owe to future generation to leave behind a world that is far better than the one we inherited”       Verchamoh L Kamara

1. Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

I am driven by other’s weaknesses. I dream of a world where everybody can achieve greatness without any obstacles or hindrances. Whenever I see people with passion to do something good but lack a certain
encouragement or support in any way, I always want to help out. I believe in freedom and creating a kinder society.

My true passion is to become a wealthy businessman, one that uses his wealth, influence and resources to effect change in the lives of others, especially the youth. I believe we owe to future generation to leave behind a world that is far better than the one we inherited.

2. How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I found my passion when life put me in a situation that I had to see the reality of life at a young age. It started when I was thrown out of school for tuition during exam week.

The feeling of being kicked out of school for tuition can be very taunting especially to kids with big dreams from poor backgrounds. Thank God I didn’t have to go through this situation for a long time as I was blessed with a scholarship to continue my education.

A few years later, I notice that there were many other kids in my community not in school due to lack of financial support. This was similar to my situation and I was confronted with a question asked by my very self, “What can I do to help?” Since I could not put them in school, I decided to establish an initiative by organizing study classes where out-of-school kids can get an education and learn some basic things. I enjoy being around kids and people and I found passion in helping out with things.

3. What about your passion appeals to you the most?

It is my determination that appeals to me the most. I become committed and determined when I am passionate about things.

4. What drove you to make money from your passions?

Like every other passionate person, you need funds to sustain your dreams. It is to sustain my dreams and keep my passion alive that I decided to make money from it.

5. When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

The first time I was paid for my passion was when my dad surprised me with some
dollars as appreciation for caring for others. He said it was a
pay/reward for my love for humanity.

6. What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

It was the voices and confidence from my parents that kept me pushing through. Though there were others to criticize, their support and belief kept me going.

7. What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

“We are not successful until we help others succeed!”

It is this quotation that made me understand that until all of humanity is successful; our mission is not yet completed.

8. What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?

To other aspiring creatives who dare to dream me, I advise that you believe in your dreams no matter what others think of you. Be committed, determined, and focus and surely success is yours.
