Presentation by UKZN Alumnus and Well Known Magician, Mo Magic - Monday, 24 July 2017


Mahommed Moorad, known popularly as Mo Magic is South Africa’s most well-known magician. He holds an honours degree from UKZN. In this presentation, the engineer turned entertainer shares his fascinating journey of how a small town boy who faced tragedy at the tender age of 3 after losing his father, discovers his passion and purpose at university, takes steps towards finding himself and in the process, lives the life of his dreams. He will reflect on insights learnt as an engineering student, engineer, magician and overall student of life and how these may be applied by others to live more productive and joyful lives.

A passion for the art of magic that was sparked at university, developed into a hobby and soon evolved into a part-time career whilst working as a full-time engineer. Qualified in electronic engineering and with over six years of industry experience, Mahommed Moorad, resigned from his lucrative career as a project and customer manager in 2010 to follow his passion for entertaining with the art of magic.

Mo Magic will talk on: The Magic of Learning: Insights & Reflections of an Engineer turned Entertainer, sharing joy and delight through his world class magic. Prepare to be astonished as you join us for what promises to be a most entertaining, family friendly evening with wine, juice, snacks and good- company afterwards!
