KZN entrepreneur, who is set to become a household name in South Africa, speaks about his feelings as he packs up his life and prepares for a grueling schedule. Ntokozo Biyela is 36 years old and he hails from Durban, he is Mobile Unit Manufacturer.
"I can't wait to be part of the biggest business competition in Africa. This is going to be one of those bittersweet moments in my life, bitter in a sense that I will be leaving behind a highly pregnant wife in Durban as we are expecting our third child in the same month we start the filming and is sweet in the sense that my wife has always supported me in letting me realise my dream of being the best of the best as I continue making my mark in the business world. So the best thank you gift I can get both my wife and our soon to be born baby is the title of being the last man standing in the biggest television reality show. It is situations like these that tend to bring out the best in me and I'm confident that with Jesus on my side I will climb this big mountain!"
The show's creator and one of the judges Ezra Ndwandwe is delighted with this year's format: "It's going to be compelling and we have some exciting revelations to make during its run. Watch this space!"
The Big Break Legacy first made its appearance on South African TV screens in February 2012. It aims to start a global revolution of entrepreneurs that build new enterprises which are innovative, exciting, sustainable and, most importantly, contribute meaningfully towards the social development of communities.
Each week, the challenges in each episode test entrepreneurs for character strength, creativity, aptitude and commercial savvy in addressing real life business challenges under time and resource constraints.
The 12 contestants, who will be fighting it out for one of South African reality television's biggest prize monies in the highly-anticipated The Big Break Legacy, will be moving into the Big Break Legacy house in Johannesburg on June 29.
