MO­TI­VA­TIONAL au­thor and speaker Mar­shal Chiza, seeks to main­tain his un­beaten and per­haps un­chal­lenged streak as the coun­try’s youngest au­thor, as he is set to launch his lat­est in­stal­la­tion in South Africa.

The 19-year-old’s lat­est works, a se­quel to his last book Poor Bil­lion­aire, ti­tled Be­fore I Be­come a Bil­lion­aire — Proff Ex Taught Me Lessons. The book is set to be launched in East Lon­don, South Africa on 23 Septem­ber. He told Sun­day Life that he got some as­sis­tance in pub­lish­ing the book and ideas from a South African play­boy Bil­lion­aire known as Proff Ex.

“The book mostly talks about things or rather habits peo­ple need to stop do­ing if ever they seek to achieve their goals. I am talk­ing about earthly weak­nesses, such as so­cial habits, which are drink­ing and try­ing to be a per­son you are not, spend­ing loads of money, which one doesn’t have. In this book I im­plore peo­ple to adopt a cul­ture or sys­tem that will un­doubt­edly lead them to at­tain­ing suc­cess,” said Chiza.

He said many peo­ple looked down upon him say­ing how could he be talk­ing about ac­cru­ing wealth yet he wasn’t a bil­lion­aire him­self. “. . . re­mem­ber Sa­muel in the Bi­ble, he taught and turned King David into a wealthy royal per­son be­fore he ac­quired riches him­self. When I talk about be­ing a bil­lion­aire I am not talk­ing about money only but also talk­ing about how the mind can be en­riched. I seek to un­leash great suc­cess in peo­ple’s lives,” said Chiza. The book has nine chap­ters, which he said was sym­bolic to a bil­lion. “A bil­lion has nine ze­ros. I am al­most a bil­lion­aire, I have all the ze­ros, all that I am left with is a 1. The lessons I am im­part­ing in my books are drawn from suc­cess­ful peo­ple’s lives,” he said. Chiza noted that it was not easy to have au­thored four books at such a young age. “To have four books at just the age of 19 is not easy. It takes a lot of work and I hope that there will be other young peo­ple that will fol­low in my foot­steps,” he said. Ch iza ’s books are: Suc­cess Bil­lion­aire, in
