Joe Kazadi

The Mzansi star was born and raised in Congo until he was 9 before moving to Durban with his mother and siblings. When he turned 18, he started working as a chef. A year later, his co-worker at the restaurant suggested he tries out modelling since he had the body of a model.

Having nothing to lose, he decided to join the profession. He signed up to a modelling agency, and months later he got a gig. Having received more income from modelling, he decided to move to Johannesburg in 2009 to expand on his new modelling career. At the time, he had already been fired from the restaurant.

To get his bus fare to Johannesburg, he borrowed R120 from a friend, which was not enough, but after pleading with a generous bus driver, he agreed to let Joe sit in the trailer where the luggage was. The driver kept checking up on him every time the bus stopped since he was very uncomfortable, but he safely managed to get to Johannesburg. For a couple of nights, he slept in an abandoned building full of rats. According to him, that was one of his darkest experiences, but it made him numb to fear.
