Creatives Makhado was founded in 2014 with the hope of it becoming the voice and the face for local creatives. The platform discovers local talent ranging from art, music, fashion, photography and everything in between creativity. Muvhusi Tshilimandila (21) otherwise known as MTC Cracker hails from Louis Trichardt in Limpopo. He has been living in Muckleneuk Pretoria for ten years, he is the brains behind Creatives Makhado. The company is all bout marketing, promotion of local creativity.
“Our company is different because I started it to help those in need, most marketing agencies in South Africa are very expensive”, he said. This marketing agency is different from others because it provides cheaper and affordable services to accommodate every South African. The company connects upcoming creatives with influential names in their industry.
The company has two full time employees and more than 10 freelancers monthly. Tshilimandila uses his own money to fund the business. “I have always been passionate about helping upcoming artists, that’s what encouraged me to start Creatives Makhado”, he said. Infrastructure, cash flow and funding are the challenges that the agency is facing. “I have no backing from anyone or any agency, I run my company with my own money”, he says.
In future he would like to see his online platform rise from it’s current 70k monthly audience to more than 1 million monthly audience. He would also like his agency to be recognised amongst other major agencies internationally. #ladi_jaja?
