Earlier this year, we let you guys know that DJ Sbu was invited to speak at a business summit in the US and that day has finally come.
The DJ - who will be launching his own digital platform next Monday - is currently in Massachusetts in Boston, in the United States following his talk about how technology is advancing life in Africa.
Speaking at MIT this weekend. Tonight I jet to JFK NYC then connect to Boston. Broadcasting the @djsbubreakfast from the US over the next couple of days & @miss_azizzar will be holding it down from the studio on massivmetro.com #Entrepreneurship #SocialEntrepreneurship #Business #Visionaries #Pioneers #GameChangers #Innovators #MassivMetro #MoFaya #StartUp #Africa #AfricaRising #AfricaLeads massivmetro.com leadership2020.co.za mofaya.co.za
He confirmed the news by posting this letter a few days ago and he has been sharing snaps of the fun ever since.
He actually looked super dapper ahead of his talk at MIT - and naturally, he HAD to have his MoFaya there. Proving that even getting fired by the SABC could never put him off his guerilla marketing tactics.
And it wouldn't be a DJ Sbu trip without a few words of encouragement which he recorded outside Kirkland House - the dormitory that Mark Zuckerberg stayed in while he was a student at MIT (back when he and his friends invented Facebook).
Here's to the dreamers, the believers, the DOers, the ones up late at night when everyone is in bed. The ones always up earlier than everyone else. Slaves of their own dreams. Crazy doochebags who will stop at nothing to get it done. Yithi labo. Izinja zesganga. The hungry ones. Abophunyuka bamphethe. We are the unstoppable ones. Dreamchasers. All the way from Harvard rise & grind my hustlers its a brand new week. Go out there & chase those dreams. Keep going & keep shinning my brothers & sisters. Let no one or nothing stand in your way. #KirklandHouse #MondayMotivation #BillionairesUnderConstruction #TheMindsetOfAnEntrepreneur #JourneyToGreatnessContinues
Coincidentally, while Sbu was standing outside recording these videos, the student who now stays in Zuckerberg's old room came home and as fate (and a little convincing) would have it, he let Sbu in to see the room. Watch the exchange below:
Ladies & gents we khahleling doors open. This is the room where @facebook was born. This just reminded me of all those kids who produce some of the biggest hit songs in music history from their small bedroom studios. Never despise of small beginnings. @Ryguywaterous thank you for letting us into this historic room bro we appreciate the kind gesture. All the best with your studies. Too much pressure to live up to @zuck but we hope it's enough inspiration for you to excell. #MondayMotivation
Wow! Only DJ Sbu guys... Only DJ Sbu.
