TV Host and Founder of Voigush Africa and Waka Waka Moo, Luis Munana is the third Namibian to be listed among Forbes Africa’s 30 Under 30 list for 2019.
The 30 Under 30 list for 2019 was heralded at the annual Forbes Africa Under 30 Meet-Up held at the Houghton Hotel in Johannesburg.
The under 30 list features 120 young African change-makers for the first time, increasing from 90 the previous year; with 30 finalists in each of the four categories (sport, creatives, technology, and business).
The model made it onto the list of the creatives coming in at position number 19 alongside Boitumelo ‘Boity’ Thulo, Sho Madjozi and Burna boy who recently won a BET Award.
Munana has witnessed his potential as an entrepreneur to create jobs within Namibia and across the continent. Which means he will eventually have a net worth estimated at US$200 million someday.
The elated entrepreneur expressed his joy for being selected and feels on top of the world for such an achievement at such a young age. ‘’It feels on true, I’m just a boy from the street of Rundu. It’s amazing how they chose me among all the people across Africa and I made it. I am one of 30 Africans on their list,” he said.
He now feels that this feat has opened up a new chapter as Africa has eyes on him now which has introduced him into the global market.
Munana also feels a bit of burden mounting on him but the good kind of burden that motivates and drives him to desire more because people believe in him and believes he can achieve it.
So far, Munana has established 35 permanent jobs and hires about 80 employees on a project basis at times.
The notable figure has a respected experience as he has hosted the Yo Countdown television program, participated in the reality television series Big Brother Africa, in 2014. He also Produced Voigush, began the Windhoek Fashion Week, as well as being a part-time model, and finally Waka Waka Moo television series which is broadcasted internationally and locally.
The Forbes Africa’s 30 list represents individuals they believe that have the potential that will one day have a net worth of no less than US$200 million and hire thousands of people and help develop the African continent.
