Businesses Owned By Nkosinathi ‘NayMaps’ Maphalala. Nay Maps is an actor, TV presenter and musician that based in South Africa, his real name is Nkosinathi Maphalala. Despite having an educational background in the sciences, Maps’ heart longed for the creative arts and that is how he ended up with the decorative titles of “TV presenter”, “Actor” and “Musician” all under his belt. His breakthrough moment on television was presenting on the lifestyle show, Hashtag that aired on channel ANN7. Concurrently, he also worked in the modelling industry and made appearances on commercials. The premier of Uzalo, South Africa’s juiciest drama series yet, saw Nay rise to stardom almost instantly when he was cast to play Mxolisi in Uzalo. Below are some of the businesses owned by Nay Maps.
Nay Maps Clothing
Nay Maps founded the clothing brand in 2016 because he wants people to know that they too can achieve anything they want to as long as they believe. He wants people to feel confident when wearing Nay Maps. Maphalala wants people to feel good and joyful and satisfied and content with who they are and what they have because this is who he is and what he is all about. “I created this brand so that people can feel the love of God and for them to not only feel but know that God loves them. The world needs to experience and see the creatives we have in this diverse, beautiful and colourful country and to also experience our quality, our lives and stories that we have.” Maphalala said on the company’s website.
The actor shared in an interview on Massive Metro’s DJ Sbu Breakfast that he sees himself creating his own films and production but is now running a brand called Naymaps. “It was merely faith…merely always speaking it into my life, I was always speaking positivity upon my life…saying into the mirror that ‘I am an international actor, I am an international TV presenter, and I have the biggest clothing brand to ever hit the world…” This is a good business move as it will allow him to have control over the type of content he would like to take out to the public.
From being a much loved favourite actor on TV screens, Nay Maps has another exciting project up his sleeve. The project is called The Lickery, a dairy and dairy free ice cream company that provides ice creams that are 100% natural and sugar free. The profit potential in the ice cream business is outstanding, and it’s not uncommon for an established ice cream stand to generate profits in a three or four month season. Ice-cream is typically regarded as a seasonal product, with demand peaking during the summer months.
