Moshe Ndiki talks about how his last R30 unlocked the doors

Comedian Moshe Ndiki exposes about being within the darkest and most desperate times of his life as an unemployed graduate. The You Promised To Marry Me host is indebted to loose cigarettes and an inexpensive bottle of wine, which opened a golden opportunity for him.

The star who gained his overnight success through YouTube opened about the struggles of being an unemployed graduate on The Nescafe Grind Sessions Episode 2. The chat show is hosted by the bubbly presenter Hulisani Ravele and provides guests the chance to speak about social media influence.

On the episode Hulisani was joined by Moshe Ndiki, Jess Van Heerden & Lerato Sengadi who went into detail about the benefits of social media.

A few years ago, the hilarious Moshe Ndiki’s videos circulated everywhere social media, and his rise to stardom was instant. But it had been not all rosy as he had struggled financially before making it big.

“I was a media studies graduate. So three years after being in varsity i assumed maybe I could get employment otherwise you know the foremost I can do is attend an audition or simply get discovered like Charlize Theron as she did at the bank and whatnot.

“Life had other plans and therefore the industry had other plans on behalf of me. So I used to be like ‘what am I able to do?’. So as a really broke and unemployed (graduate) I had the last R30 and that I deposited my rent money into the incorrect account so I used to be very stressed. Took my last R30 and that I bought the most cost-effective wine I could find and two loose cigarettes,” said the actor.

Moshe said he shot a video when he got home but only uploaded it the subsequent day. a budget R25 wine gave him a really bad hangover but a lover told him to upload the video on YouTube. A skeptical Moshe then took his friend’s advice and therefore the rest is history.

“A friend of mine came to go to me and was like ‘dude let’s upload this on YouTube’ and that I was like ‘Isn’t that for Brittney and Beyoncé?”

To his surprise, his video gained tons of traction and he became very famous. Moshe believes that his rawness and authenticity allowed people to attach together with his content.

“We uploaded it but we expected like two views only for that one video but we got like 1 500 views and in fortnight time we had like 10 000 views and that we had numerous subscribers. the gorgeous thing that is people liked the content I put out because it had been genuine and it had been authentic. I used to be literally telling them about my journey and the way I used to be unemployed.
