Mkhwanazi sat down with Azania for this week's #FridayProfile to share more about his work and achievements.
He says his business ventures started when he was only 17 years old.
I always had a passion for computers so the business originally started as a computer repairs business, then I thought, no there has got to be something different - got into website development and later that business grew phenomenally where in 2006 we merged with another business called Crazy Boys and became one of the biggest web development businesses in the country.— Zibusiso Mkhwanazi, Founder and group CEO - M&N Brands
In 2012 I left that because my vision changed. That is why I established Avatar, an integrated agency, cross channel where you can communicate effectively with the consumer.— Zibusiso Mkhwanazi, Founder and group CEO - M&N Brands
In this dream of doing something, my first client was my first school.— Zibusiso Mkhwanazi, Founder and froup CEO - M&N Brands
