Lasizwe reacts to earning spot in Forbes 30 Under 30 list
Forbes Africa released the video montage of this year’s alumni, which includes the likes of popular social media influencer and comedian Elsa Majimbo, Dr Brett Lyndall Singh, CEO and founder of AOM Group, and Fatima Babakura, among others.
The Class of 2022, Forbes Africa listed as “visionaries of change and catalysts for innovation.”
“This is the most coveted annual list on the continent… and these people have a proven track record in business and entrepreneurship, and arts, and sports, and all the fields that they are in. But I think these young people, are role models and this list gives them greater visibility on the continent,” Renuka Methil, Managing Editor of Forbes Africa said.
In reaction to his inclusion in the ‘30 Under 30‘ Class of 2022, Lasizwe dedicated the certificate to his parents, wishing he “had the opportunity to see their reactions [to] this.”
