The fashion weekend is just around the corner and we got the privileged to meet up with one the people behind the possibility of this amazing event coming up.
An entrepreneur, photographer and model Mojalefa Maboko is the man behind Promote It Productions, which will brings the event to live next weekend. We had a chance to scoop an interview with Maboko, to find out more about him,the up coming event and his production company.

The 29 year old entrepreneur is a triple threat in the production industry. He’s the founder of the production company that is busy organizing the coming event hand to hand with ThagProductions.
“This is not the First big event we have organized, but we got really positive feedback on this coming event already, I am excited and nervous.” “The community is responding well,” Mojalefa said.
“Patience drives me in this industry, at first I didn’t really benefit much but I never gave up and simply because I have love for my line of work.” “With this show we want designers to work together and for Limpopo to rise and stand up on our own.” Maboko said.
