Turning dreams into Reality

Alex Rose-Innes

WHAT makes a winner? And what is the difference between success and failure?

It could all be summed up in a few words – vision, hard work and faith. Afolabi Kola Godslove (27) is not only proving this to be correct, but at the same time, included the upliftment and empowerment of others in his plans.

As MD and CEO of Tagged Exquisite Entertainment & PR Consultants, he hobnobs with the rich and famous, but is a humble young man who makes a difference and creates a stir wherever he goes.

With a winning team in the wings, Kola is making serious inroads in the industry

After film school, Kola put his dreams into action and to date had completed four full feature films, 11 shorts and many commercials for the African market. However, in the next ten years, he is adamant that he would have successfully bridged the gap between the African and western world markets. During production of his work, he used local, provincial and national actors to ensure the audience his films reach is not only limited to Mpumalanga.

When talking to this young man, his passion, natural business acumen and drive leave no doubt in one’s mind that he would own his first Oscar before hitting the big 40. And that by age 50 he would have adopted 50 children from across the globe. For that he would need a lot of money, but that he would amass as he does what he does best, turn dreams into reality. For him and others.

Kola’s advice? Surround yourself with positive people, visionaries and smart thinkers. Not everyone is on the same level. Use your talents to grow others and always have a teachable spirit accepting advice. My money is on this young man.
