aim high

They say there’s not a lot of room at the top, but if this month’s cover stars are anything to go by, these days it’s about creating room rather than waiting for an open spot. It’s that clarity of mind that propelled John Boyega through to the role of a lifetime, one that’ll forever place him in a new galaxy of acting talent – and an energy which he’s smartly matched with a feet-on-the-ground realness that we’re hoping will spread throughout the Hollywood machine. A machine, by the way, he’s clearly trying to repair: ‘I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on screen – we can ruffle some feathers,’ he tells Anna Peele on page 66. Of course, we can’t all inhabit the Star Wars universe, but…

MAN OF THE MOMENT PREVIEW TECHNOLOGY GROOMING GENTLEMAN’S CORNER THE TALK STATUS SYMBOL TASTE DESTINATION SEX MUSIC MOVIES GAMES BOOKS GQ&A Actress Zakeeya Patel is, in her own words, ‘like a spinning top’. She’s tireless, feisty, wildly driven. ‘I grew up in Durban and studied in Cape Town, but I’m much more of a Jo’burger than anything else,’ she admits. ‘I drive like one, I move at the pace of one.’ Her restless approach to life is no doubt a key reason why she’s achieved almost everything she’s aimed for so far (other than her childhood dream to become a mermaid, of course). In fact, she’s shaped a career for herself that’s currently so jam-packed with opportunities, she barely has time for anything else, let alone planning her November nuptials with financial…

nurtured back to life

A self-proclaimed risk taker, impulsive doer and internal optimist, Alexander Fourie built a franchise that has, a decade later, become South Africa’s leading smart device repair hub, weFix. Soon after realising his entrepreneurial aptitude at the age of 18, Fourie set up a host of mini businesses, trying his hand at music promoting and band tour management. ‘I had a stupid self-confidence, where I could simply talk my way into getting things done,’ he says.

He taught himself how to fix it through YouTube tutorials and then went on to fix university friends’ broken iPods. Word-of-mouth and a simple advertisement led to an…
