We had the good fortune of connecting with Matondo Kiantandu and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Matondo, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
I believe it’s being able to maintain independence and reasonable financial security while having control over creative pursuits. When you can say no and still keep your lights on it’s a victory. It takes away desperation and when you say yes you know it can be something special.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have a company MGFame Entertainment. I was struggling with no money, no job no roof over my head. When you’re waiting for the phone to ring it’s an awful feeling. I was able to create some films that generated revenue and the pressure was off so I started booking. It wasn’t long before I had new car and a place to stay. It was brutal but I have no regrets.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well it’s tough to say. Covid slowed everything down. We really won’t know how things will be until it’s over. Unfortunately some businesses may not return. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My team Christine, Ralph, and Kacie and Lisette. They are my reps and have been not only partners in my creative pursuits but I consider them friends.
