It’s been many moons since Sesame Mosweu was a household name and in fact, one might even say the Sesame most people knew was from a whole other lifetime ago.
Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing because let’s face it, when has being stagnant ever been a good thing?
The young lady rose to stardom on the airwaves of Yarona FM and had a phenomenal show co hosting with Scar that encapsulated the spirit of the youth - The duo was vibrant, educated and confident, and in her many young women saw a vision to aspire to.
Alongside being a Law student at the time she worked with many big names and organizations; Going to New York to host the Goldman Sachs 10,000 small business initiative radio program, being the Ambassador of the New American Chamber of Commerce as well as starring in The #1 Ladies Detective Agency alongside Jill Scott. Not to mention her role running One Take Drama and Theater, which offered dance and theater classes to kids between the ages of 3 and 18.
Her’s has been a life firmly set on self actualization and that hasn’t changed a bit since her departure from radio and TV.
“I was raised by a very strict mother so that taught me discipline, then life experiences, mine and those of the people around me taught me how the world works. I read a lot so I have learned a lot from books as well. But one truth remains constant, what we put out there we get back – multiplied. What we focus on is our choice,” she shared during an interview with Sunday Standard a few years back.
It’s that spirit of determination and resilience that’s carried her into becoming a confident, fulfilled woman. A lawyer by profession, Sesame runs a boutique as well, Xevo Boutique in iTowers, and is apparently writing a book too, a fictional body of work that she’d like to see make it to TV.
In a recent interview with Dintshang News she stated that she didn’t quite leave the industry, but simply found that she prefers the business side of things. A sentiment I honestly find fitting for her seeing how protective she seems to be of her personal life, after having been through a fairly publicized relationship and breakup with rapper Zeus.
True to form, it’s become a defining factor in the story of her life, as far as the public’s memory goes.
But as I mentioned earlier, that was a lifetime ago. Sesame now is a business owner and self professed Mogul in the making. She has razor sharp focus on her dreams and is seemingly working extra hard to actualize them.
Her interview with Dintshang covered a wide array of issues, from feminism, Minister Bogolo Kenewendo, to #gymlife and her key to fulfillment; “I don’t think I would do anything different, I only ever make a mistake once, and I learn and move on. If something gives me the results I want then I repeat it, improve it and replicate it.”
We definitely think that's a healthy rule to live by.
