“There have to be reasons that you get up in the morning and you want to live. Why do you want to live? What’s the point? What inspires you? What do you love about the future? If the future does not include being out there among the stars and being a multi-planet species, I find that incredibly depressing.” – Elon Musk
Born in Harare Zimbabwe, Farai Mashiri is a junior developer living in Cape town. “I am the found and Head creative creator at The Alpha-list, AlphalistRadio and ISSued Magazine. I am currently working on building the alphalist network of creatives. My current personal project is a Podcast for men that tackles issues of self-care, self-help, healing and growth.
The Alphalist—In my A Break after high school i set to change the way we do events and wanted to create a platform where people felt more comfortable at events because I’d personalised the experience overall. That meant i needed to foster relationships within the industry and i started by working under the wing of Selekta-Base to really understand what it took not only to run successful events but to make sure we built a name for our brand representing all of its members.
Working with Ora, 1+1 long chen, TheFamily263 and running our own events i soon built a name for myself in the industry.
Come 2017 and my move to Cape Town I wanted to keep the flame going and that’s when Saint Lounge came into the picture. Our most stunning events ever. A dream. We were able to not only get one of our Alpha-list Affiliated Djs KingLad a permanent residency, we were also able to land our own night to host every week. This is when our focus shifted, we wanted to now built a network of creatives that connects everyone to content and other creatives in order to make one off collaborations in true Alpha-list style.
What is the Alphalist now? The alphalist is a network of creatives. a hub of content created by our expressionists to bring our followers great original content as the artists intended for you to see it.
