Sanele Makinane Wins Big Break Legacy Season 2

22-year-old Sanele Makinane from North West has been named the winner of The Big Break Legacy and walked off with South African reality television’s biggest prize, a R5-million investment into his business. Makinane beat two other entrepreneurs: Jared Pillai, 24, from Pretoria and Tsepiso Makhubedu, 19, from Nelspruit, Mpumalanga for the top prize.

The prize money will be invested in Makinane’s business, Apex Commercial Solutions, which through an initiative called Mzanzi Digital uses information communications technology systems to help those in previously disadvantaged communities in the North West. 
He intends spreading the technology through municipalities, the district and eventually through the province and the country. 
 “I want to help make the country digital,” he says.
His strategy has been to dream big, but start small. 
 “One must lay a firm foundation for growth in order to manage your own growth. Also you must spare time to get to know your business before appointing others to do work for you. You must master all the tasks.”
Says the show’s creator and judge, Ezra Ndwandwe, 
“This has been the best season yet. With the programme going international, we can now look forward to adding value to South African entrepreneurs and exposing them to what other business people are doing. We need to continue the education beyond television and strengthen all efforts that seek to advance economic development through the commercialisation of innovation. The bottom line is; we need to create businesses in order to decisively respond to the plight of poverty and unemployment. We all have it in us to contribute and we should not be waiting for government to develop solutions that we can develop ourselves.”
The Big Break Legacy has been made possible thanks to MTN the title sponsor, the dti, IDC, GIBS, Productivity SA, Foschini, Markham, Google, Brand SA, Chevrolet, SABC2 and the Department of Trade and Industry with support from CNBC and Independent Newspapers.
Congratulations to Sanele for being the ultimate winner, as well as Jarred and Tsepo who were in the top 3 and walked away with a car from Chevrolet for making it to the final episode.
