Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays, Personal Edition” feature.
This week Whitfield interviewed Expresso’s Katlego Maboe.
Maboe - a multiple award winning media personality – is well-known for his wicked sense of humour and speaking fluently in Setswana, Afrikaans and English.
He is also one of acapella boy-band Flip a Coin’s lead vocalists and beat-boxers.
Maboe is a philanthropist and avid cricketer (and boxer!).
What does Maboe believe about money?
Does he spend like crazy, or save compulsively?
How did his childhood experiences of deprivation, or abundance, shape his views on money?
