In the midst of remembering the legacy that the youth of ‘76,  SAPN Entertainment and  On the Red Couch with - is celebrating the youth of today and their respective roles in keeping the legacy alive (#YouthDoingTheMost), Today we met up with the 19-year-old Mpho Charl Botha who is doing just that.

Born and raised in the Free State Province and currently residing in Johannesburg, Mpho is an epitome of a true achiever with a personality that’s hard to ignore. Regardless of the challenges he has faced in his life, he somehow finds a way to convert them into life-changing opportunities not only for himself but those around him. At the tender age of 19, Mpho already has a few companies under his name, Mpho Botha Events which hosts the United Nations Pageant South Africa, founded his own Mpho Charl Botha Diabetic Foundation which raised an amount of R27 000 to help children affected by Diabetes back in 2016 and he is also the founder of South African Top 100 ambassadors.



Mpho has never looked down on himself as he continues to strive to be better in every aspect and has managed to acquire a few names for himself such as; Yale Model United Nations Ambassador 2018,  Mr Teen Tourism World South Africa to name a few. Mpho has grown to be a role model to his peers and his journey started back in 2014 when he won his first title as Mr Matjhabeng Junior Council and moved on to being the first African-teenager to ever win the Mr Teen World title in 2016 hosted in Turkey. Ever since that he has never stopped, his other titles include: Mr Teen Welkom (2015), Mr Junior South Africa (2016), Mr Talent of The World (2016) and Mr Jnr Teen South Africa (2016), Mr Junior Africa (2017) among others.


Mpho received Mr Jnr of The Year Award and a congratulatory certificate from the South African Parliament for having represented the country well at Mr Teen World pageant 2016 competition and walking away with the title. In 2018 he was part of the Top 30 African Youth Leaders hosted at the African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg and as a result, he will be representing South Africa in 2019 at the international pageant in Japan.


Don’t be afraid not to know where the next course of your life might take you, take risks, embrace your flaws and don’t be afraid to be a mess”, says Mpho.


From all of us here @sapositivenews #OnTheRedCouchWith-, we would like to say halala to you Mpho for being one of the #YouthDoingTheMost and keeping the youth movement on fire by empowering the fellow youth to prosper and succeed.
