Full Interview

Marvellous: My big man, the big boss, Emmiraan! How are you doing, man?

Emmiraan: I'm good, I'm good man. I'm great 😎

M: You’re known as The Media Maestro. Tell us a little bit more – like how did you get such a beautiful name? 

E: Well, Media Maestro was like an alter ego to me as just a young kid who hails all the way from a small town in Limpopo called Bella Bella. Yeah, I’ve always had a passion for media. So I've just developed this very ambitious little boy in me who's always chasing after the next thing in the media, right. And that's how I found The Media Maestro

M: So obviously, you mentioned why… and how has it been, man? How's the journey been? What's the biggest lessons that you've learned? 

E: You always have to be patient. You always have to be patient! And if it's something that you love, trust me, like, it's always gonna work out. You can fall as many times as possible. But at the end, you will come out there and you'll eventually forget all those times that you've fallen. So if it's about your passion, always make sure that you're patient. That's been my biggest lesson. 

M: How is that? How's your relationship with money? 

E: Our relationship has gotten better over time 😂 You know, you're working as a freelancer, sometimes there's no money, sometimes you’re working for exposure, sometimes you’re working for a raise so you need to actually work out how much you've got, and how much you've got to work with ⚖️

M: This bank[ing platform] is better – it's called Bettr. So what do you think about the idea and the concept? I personally think it's brilliant.

E: Look – I think we're about to be part of an era that is about to change the game. I want people 20 years from now to be like, “Flip! People were busy doing things.” And I’m like, “Yeah, I was there like 10 years ago. I was fine.” 😎

I mean, everything else is virtual. So if you aren't virtual, then what are you doing? You know, if you aren't digital, what are you doing? Yeah. So I think [Bettr] just works for you. It's like when life catches up with you, instead of you having to catch up with life. 

M: Our Twitter today is gonna be flowing with these quotes 🔊

E: You just make sure you tag me and I’ll just retweet all of these tweets! 🤝

M: Man, Thank you so much, man. It's such a pleasure.
