As entertainers, we see so many people die broke. It’s always good to have a side business. You will never be broke in January.
We have other celebrities that have also diversified into other areas instead of relying on entertainment. For example, DJ Zinhle owns a business, ‘Era by DJ Zinhle’ where she has a series of watch ranges. She also owns a furniture line with the name ‘Jiyane Atelier.’ Bonang Matheba owns ‘House of BNG. ’ Other celebrities that have shown their business skills include Oskido, who owns Maps Maponyane’s Buns Out restaurant and a Japanese restaurant in Woodmead. Thando Thabethe’s underwear label, ‘Thabooty,’ spanned out of the desire to celebrate all body types.
