Cabby is a born marketer. He is the kind of guy who is always looking for new and different solutions to maximise every opportunity. And he finds them.

 

The Pride Group is the culmination of this get-ahead approach to business and an ability to turn ideas into concrete prospects.

 

He first launched DarkChild Productions in 2004 with a focus on sports marketing, events and TV production. It began as the perfect vehicle to fuel his passion for basketball and youth development. The company landed the contract to produce The BBall Show, a basketball lifestyle show for SABC 1 and has continued to grow from strength to strength with a client base of government and private clients. Dark Child now offers a multi-faceted range of services, including digital, mass brand activations and spaza retail marketing.

Claim to fame: Specialist knowledge in black culture, particularly the youth and ‘black diamond’ sector

 

Impressive credentials:  BSc degree: Biology & Chemistry (university of Lesotho) with Honours in Food Technology (University of Pretoria).

 

Latest venture: a number of infrastructure development projects across Africa with a special interest in alternative power.

In 2012, Cabby Magongwa acquired a minority shareholding in TYME (tech startup in mobile banking) as Head of Marketing. TYME sold in 2015 presenting an opportunity for him to consolidate his business offering under The Pride Group.

 

In 2015 Cabby launched Pride Life, a financial services solutions company in association with Capital Alliance. Pride Life is a risk and insurance business with a range of lifestyle support services aimed to improve its members’ lives.

 

Pride Capital Investments has also since developed out of Cabby’s natural business acumen and impressive network. He is involved in a number of noteworthy initiatives from small business bridging finance to large infrastructure project funding.

 

Highly motivated and results-oriented with extensive marketing expertise (MegaPro, AC Nielsen and Research Surveys), Cabby is your go-to guy to make big things happen. When he puts his smartphone down, he likes basketball (so much so he recently invested in the KZN Marlins) and hanging out with his two little girls.
