Getting fired from Metro FM seems to have been a blessing for Dj Sbu, whose energy drink Mo Faya now sells a million cans a month. It is a far cry from his very first sale of 48 cans that he sold from the boot of his car when he started out in 2015.
While DJ Sbu’s career is still thriving, he still finds the time to give back to the less fortunate. Sibusiso Leope is the owner of an online radio station – Massive Metro and has recently launched Hustlers Academy which is helping and changing lives of youth through entrepreneurship.
This past week, DJ Sbu has been seen in the streets of Johannesburg serving a hot meal with a can of his energy drink Mo Faya to the homeless. Sbu, who is all about educating the youth about financial literacy, went a step further by offering a homeless man a case of Mo Faya worth R180, in order for him to sell it and make money for himself.
In 2016, Metro FM fired Dj Sbu , real name Sbusiso Leope, for promoting his energy drink during a live TV broadcast of the 2015 Metro FM Music Awards. The entrepreneur, inspirational speaker and philanthropist has not been shy to use ambush marketing tactics to promote his energy drink. Although this has often landed him in trouble, it has also recently opened doors to greater opportunities.
