'Money is like a penis...' - Muzi Kuzwayo (founder of ad agency Ignitive)

Money is an enabler. It allows you to move things forward. It’s transient; it doesn’t stay. It gives you protection.

Muzi Kuzwayo

My biggest investments are my children and my business.

Muzi Kuzwayo

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” feature.

This week he spoke to Muzi Kuzwayo, an author, professor and founder of full service creative agency Ignitive.

Ignitive is deeply rooted in the township market.

It states its mission as “to make our clients stars” which is why Kuzwayo calls it the “Motown of Advertising”.

I started loving advertising when I was in standard seven. Them stones, them stones, them Firestones!

Muzi Kuzwayo

Money is like a penis. Some people have it and some don’t. And those who have it lie about it! And those who don’t have it want it!

Muzi Kuzwayo

I support Fees Must Fall 100%.

Muzi Kuzwayo

Countries who invest in their people are successful.

Muzi Kuzwayo

I don’t think there’s anyone in the world that cleans a toilet as well as I do!

Muzi Kuzwayo

As I grow older I know more and more about less and less.
