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.

#CreatePrenuerAfrica: South Africa’s Usha Seejarim’s soul journey into artistic realms linking human connectivity

 

We all have storerooms, backyards, and trunkloads storing archived unwanted or expired products and life experiences, right?

Somewhere items are lying about like odd hangers, broken irons and pegs?

Usha Seejarim translates ordinary objects into a dichotomy of monumental artwork. Items used daily like irons, brooms, safety pins and wooden pegs mark the aura of her humanistic themes in the dynamics of space, displacement, chance and time.

” I never thought I would become an artist as a child. I loved art, but it was not seen as a profession in social circles and the community I was raised in.  I enrolled at FUBA  (federated Union of Black Artists), in Newtown Johannesburg when my school did not offer art as a  study subject. I took part-time courses at FUBA and never looked back. I then got a  qualification equivalent of a bachelor of fine arts  at Wits technikon and my Master’s of Fine Arts at Wits University ”

Meet CreatepreneurAfrica – ‘Aesthetic Extraordinaire’ Usha Seejarim

 

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

The constant pursuit of a feeling of complete presence and joy. Albeit fleeting, for me, this is achieved through stillness, through being in nature and through making art.

2007-2010 – Why Men, created for the Sandton Business Improvement District, Johannesburg,
How did you find your passion and how old were you?

This is always a difficult question to answer. I have always enjoyed drawing and making things. Perhaps when I was a teenager, I became aware that this was somewhat of a gift, through the attention given by others.

2005 – Pin Code
What about your passion appeals to you the most? 

That despite the fact that the work is often complex, often incredibly labor intensive and often challenging to navigate, it always seems effortless and enjoyable.

Forgiveness-02.jpg 2013 – Forgiveness
What drove you to make money from your passions?

The stubborn attitude to making it work and not succumbing to easier means of earning an income that would involve negating the making of art.

[amazon_link asins=’1634256697,0735200130′ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’exploremoth07-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’13d46954-5f50-11e8-92e2-1da382feb5bf’]

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

Perhaps as a student when I took on mural painting and other student jobs available for an art student.

What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

A belief in myself and an inner voice that said that this is, in fact, bigger than yourself. An acknowledgment of a gift.

What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

A definition of success that is much further away from where I am right now.

2008 – Screens for the South African Chancery, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

I would like to believe that I have matured enough not to care about those that have doubted me. My journey does not involve proving anything to anybody. I am simply doing my thing and getting on with it.

[amazon_link asins=’8887090912,0300229151′ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’exploremoth07-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’78a32b6a-5f4d-11e8-8f9a-4b57c747d8e0′]

What advice do you give to aspiring creative's who look up to you?

I stress the importance of being authentic. Be yourself and allow your unique journey to unfold. Work hard without trying too hard. Be ambitious without being desperate and learn from those who you admire. Emulate their work ethic and not their work.

‘#CreatepreneurAfrica’ – Pablo Zungu Art wonders in Tanzania

The journey was ongoing. The chapter seemed to be spurting out more and more. My never-ending delve into Africa. The spark was ignited into abundance beyond note. Turning passions into profit, the rhythm echoed into smooth sailing miracles.

The Making of a Createpreneur.

When anybody churns out the term “entrepreneur”, what springs to mind at the word?A briefcase, tie and suit image?

A briefcase, tie and suit image?

On the other hand, maybe pictures of those in the billionaire ranks flashed in the media.

That is a narrow view. There are vast ways to spring any creative business venture into motion.

A common theme of ‘CreatEntepreneurs’ is a risk. Many work independently, industries differ, business can gain wisdom from other varied experiences and their management of work and risks.

 

If you an artist that goes solo with your artwork meet, CreatEntepreneur™ Pablo Zungu.

 

 

 

Pablo is an artist in Tanzania in East Africa with a large international following.

 

As artist living in a remote unknown village called Mloka on the outskirts of the main buzz of city centre. How did he get an international audience, people from all over the world to buy his local trending artwork?

Tell us about your true passion in life?

My passion is filling my day creating new pieces of art. It is expression, letting go. Each day on waking until the day closes. I found my passion at a young age. Left with the responsibility to take care of my two younger brothers at an early age when my parents passed away. My art was my key to keep all together in challenging times

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

The independence and freedom it provides. I am not imprisoned in a warehouse packing shelves or joining other pathways I have little interest in, to barely fill a fridge and every hour consumed. Slavery did not die. It evolved, not through chains at feet, but into a concrete jungle. It became legalized .My art is my freedom to create an income on my terms in my environment.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

I do not know if it was about choice. It was there, in my pathway. I discovered that selling paintings was a stream of income. With no conflict of being under instruction of any authority figures and taking orders and instructions. I chose a stress free way to sustain my family and myself.

 

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

I was a teenager and spent my time creating artwork. One-day tourists passed by, totally immersed in the piece, and placed US dollars in my hand. I was thrilled. Dollars converted into a huge amount in my local currency. I even afforded to buy more paints and canvases.

 

What kept you going when you thought about giving up? 

There were many times that I doubted any ability to make more money with my art. I overcame the self-doubt by creating and sharing my work.

What motivates you each and every day to be even more successful?

Even if I tried to join the nine to five worlds, I know I would not make it. I strived on to keep creating and spreading my work to all regions where there were possible sales. Every region that had markets or stalls for artwork I found a stall owner to display my work and draw in interest and sales.

I am based in a remote village on the outskirts of the city centre, but I prefer to be there. I live close to a popular game reserve that has a multitude of travelers from all over the world. My art is indigenous local Tanzanian authentic that appeals to all those who travel to our country. It gives them memorable artefacts to take back home of a land they will never forget and strive to revisit. My art is one aspect that promotes the thriving economic sector of tourism, so to speak.

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

I can only share my well wishes that they gain success in their pathways as I have found my passion and I am keeping to it.

What advice do you give to aspiring creative is who look up to you?

I advise them to follow their dreams and never give up. Look at all possibilities and find the one that works for you.

CreatepreneurAfrica – Saidi Mbungu @ Bagamoyo, Tanzania

Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?
My true passion is art. I believe art is empowering. It is a golden key, an outlet of expression. A tool of upliftment.

There is no free schooling in Tanzania, there is a need for an outlet for education. The youth in Bagamoyo are orphaned or poor. I started AMAP school in my backyard.
How did you find your passion and how old were you?
What about your passion appeals to you the most?
The thought of being a creator is amazing. You are on a throne of power after a piece of work is complete. I cannot even explain that element of total upliftment.
What drove you to make money from your passions?
There is so much bereavement, so much poverty surrounding our everyday life. Tourists are free to explore and enjoy our natural wonders, but we are so caught up in our economic disempowerment. But we have the tools and the talent of natural artistic skill. This is how we can rise as a nation!
When was the first time you were paid for your passion?
I remember the day. I was young. I cannot remember how old I was. I just remember the time was not good. There was little hope, scarcity at my home that triggered so many tensions. I sat outside creating an art piece of recycled materials. 

A passerby noticed. I was still in the process of polishing. They waited in wonder and handed a batch of notes and takeaway snacks and a juice too! I was delighted!
What kept you going when you thought about giving up?
Adversities are always there. They come and go. I recluse and engage in a new piece of work and I am lifted and inspired.
 What motivates you every day to be even more successful?
The kids around me. Our coming generation. They uplift my soul to reach to the stars.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?
The angels of hope are always around me. I truly hope you find yours

What advice do you give to aspiring creative is who look up to you?
I want to tell all that aspire to keep holding on. I believe in sharing hope. We can rise up together.

There are various textile options available from the motherland of Africa. Hand-painted batiks from Zimbabwe in tablecloths and pillowcases to placemats and table runners. Culturally rich and distinctive Mud cloth, handwoven from Mali.Wall hangings from depicting village lives. Wooden sculptures and Africa artefacts like masks, purses, pouches walking sticks and smoking pipes make decorative pieces.
