About this event

Raised in the small town of Botshabelo just outside of Bloemfontein, Free State as the third of six children (two older sisters, two younger sisters and a younger brother), Rampine Jeremiah Khumalo did not dream that he would one day be one of the biggest power players in Bloemfontein’s entertainment industry.

This party will be held at Boho Bistro, the perfect space for a Startup Grind Party!

As a young boy it was soccer that occupied his time until he came across Kovsie FM (then known as Radio Shimla) in his first year of his Bsc. Statistics studies at the University of the Free State. Following rigorous auditions Shaxe Khumalo made his debut on radio. Today Shaxe Khumalo is not only a radio presenter at OFM, the biggest radio station in Central South Africa, but is also a sought after MC, motivational speaker, businessman, events organizer and Bloemfontein’s premier hip hop DJ.

Shaxe went on to found his own events company, Shaxe Khumalo Events and Promotions, in 2009 as a result of numerous offers from both individuals and organizations alike. His company is best known for putting together the Mangaung Beach Party. The event was born quite literally out of a small thought and has without a doubt grown to become one of the biggest events on Bloemfontein’s social calendar.

In 2013 Shaxe Khumalo was appointed the Brand Ambassador of Sovereign Mini with his role including promoting their latest Mini Cooper models and well as the brand as a whole. That same year he was awarded a “Big Dreamer” award by SABMiller under their nationwide Hansa Pilsner Big Dreamer campaign, an initiative aimed at recognizing individuals making the necessary moves to live out their dreams.
