A young black farmer from Abaqulusi, KwaZulu-Natal, is proving that access to land can be a ticket to success.
Afrika Mkhangala regularly shares pictures and videos of his farm activities on social media, Briefly.co.za gathered.
He farms cabbages, spinach, and beans. According to one Facebook post, his farm supplies vegetables to Spar retail outlets.
In another post, Afrika revealed that he's just 23 years old and has not received any funding for his farm business. He has ambitions to supply his produce beyond South Africa's borders.
As a young entrepreneur, he participated in a youth business forum held recently on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit in Johannesburg.
Mkhangala's success has inspired many South Africans on social media. They commended him for helping to change perceptions that black people cannot farm.
Besides farming, Afrika also co-runs Urban Zulu Creative, a black-owned company offering web design, brand activation, and communications services.
