THE BEAST MODEL
Godfrey Mabhuti Malatji was born in the Eastern Cape and stayed in Gauteng’s famous township, Alexander moved to Tzaneen in Limpopo Province where he grew up. Growing up in a one big happy family, Godfrey always had passion to participate in different activities with his friends.
INSPIRATION TO MODELLING:
“I have got confidence in my body and seeing my peers making it big in the industry, I was inspired to venture in modelling”, he says. Godfrey says that models are considered to be glamorous and live a glamorous life, but for him it is just a job which he lives upon.
THREE THINGS HE LOVES ABOUT BEING IN THE MODELLING INDUSTRY:
1. Getting the opportunity to get out of his comfort zone through gigs and working hard.
2. Being recognised through his talent as he meets plenty of people and make contact.
3. Plenty rooms for progress in the industry and getting to realise that one can also conquer more than modelling, example; acting.
Being in the industry itself means a lot to him. “It has taught me to love, respect and understanding other people. In short, it has taught me discipline”, he says. His biggest highlight was when he sold a garment on the ramp which is considered to be every model’s dream and achievement. “That has earned a name on the ramp ‘THE BEAST’, It relates with my walk and attitude”, he says.
ADVICE TO YOUNG-SELF:
“Search all your talents. Let the world know that a person can have many talents. Try to succeed not to fail, but if you fail, consider yourself lucky because that might help you to find exactly what you are best at. Last but not least, always humble yourself as it comes with price.
