Sative's brand ambassador is our August cover star. World meet Mo Sejake, the CEO of Very Rare clothing label, Model and Aspiring Actor.
''Growing up with a belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, can attain their own version of success in a society where upward mobility is possible for everyone. I knew for a certain that dreams are achieved through sacrifice, risk-taking and hard work, rather than by chance. My mother installed in me at a young age the power of visualisation. She taught me that a man is as he thinks and whatever dream I have as long as I can see it in my mind I can hold it in my hand", says a smiling Mo.
Born and raised in a small town of Free State, Heilbron, a young Mo grew up with aspirations of becoming a civil engineer. Now the actor, model, CEO and head designer of Very Rare clothing label, a label he started in 2014 is making waves in the media industry. "I believe it's no mistake that I ended up in the media industry," reaffirms Mo. It was only natural to pursue modelling and acting, starting as a model for local brands. The experience launched Mo into the entertainment stratosphere.
Now a model and the face of Glam Troupe modelling agency to landing his debut acting role on Mzansi Magic's TV series Ifalakhe. When asked if one achievement tops his list of proudest moments, Mo is quick to say no. ''I have grown to understand my self-worth and not to take rejection personally, I know sometimes things don't work out, so I'm proud of the process as a whole.''
That inspiring level of self-appreciation is what landed Mo the gig as the Brand Ambassador for Sative.
What inspired you to start Very Rare? ''Fashion is the force behind my creativity and ideas'', says an endearing Mo. Very Rare was born to celebrate the diversity of the human race. The label aims to embrace our uniqueness hence the name Very Rare.
