DJ Sbu Opens Academy To Develop Hustlers.
DJ Sbu also known as Sbusiso Leope has partnered with the 3Sixty Financial Services Group (360 FSG) to positively impact thousands of young lives and families in South Africa with his own school, a learning academy. Aptly titled The Hustlers Academy. Leope intends to develop the minds and the ability of thousands of young hustlers in the country and change lives.
The Hustlers Academy is an independent privately funded economic empowerment project spearheaded by Leope to address the overwhelming lack of jobs and incumbent graduates into the system on an annual basis. The 360 FSG is a well-established financial services company with a disruptive strategy that offers clients more benefits for their rand. The partnership represents a meeting of the minds and the hearts for the development of opportunities for young South Africans.
“We will train and educate young hustlers to either be entrepreneurs or corporate hustlers. Our training programme and academy curriculum will produce the best sales force this country has seen and develop the minds of Hustlers to understand how the world works and how to stand out. In partnership with 360 FSG we will develop entrepreneurs who start businesses and employ teams of hustlers within an 18-month period. ‘The Hustlers Academy’ will take in Hustlers for training nationally in multiple provinces providing a practical and theoretical intervention in the lives of those who are skilled and restless.” Said Leope.
Group CEO and Chairman of 360 FSG, Mr. Khandani Msibi is confident that ‘The Hustlers Academy’ will play a game-changing role in developing and changing the way corporates are structured in providing a ceiling for employees as far as earnings are concerned.
“Our approach to empowerment is based on sustainability for the Hustlers who make it through the academy. We will develop people mentally as well as financially and make a serious change in their socio economic position. DJ Sbu has the potential to influence a generation and he shows this on a daily basis with his determination to succeed. We are matching his determination and passion for economic empowerment with our backing of the ‘The Hustlers Academy’ project. We look forward to changing thousands of lives with a long term impact.” Said Mr. Msibi
‘The Hustlers Academy’ is active and running a pilot group of Hustlers through its programme in Johannesburg. The academy welcomes registrations on its webapp www.hustlersacademy.co.za. Starting from 1st June 2018 The Hustlers Academy will be taking in 50 – 100 hustlers per month.
Leope goes on to say. “In 2013 we started an educational company called Leadership 2020 which was designed to develop Africa’s richest asset – its people. I’m excited that we are able to realize our vision before the year 2020 with the launch of this initiative. ‘The Hustlers Academy’ will grow to add multiple courses, mentorship, and accreditations and even lead people to formal education if they so wish. This academy will make a tangible socio – economic difference in young South African lives. ‘The Hustlers Academy’ has no registration fees and requires no learning fees. It requires you, your time, your commitment and there’s #NOVILAPHING – Lazy people will not make it.”

ABOUT 3SIXTY FINANCIAL SERVICES GROUP
3Sixty Financial Services Group is a subsidiary of the NUMSA Investment Company (NIC). The 360 FSG story started in 2006 when NIC acquired Doves Group Holdings through Brevity Trade 12, Brevity was rebranded into 360 FSG in 2015. Although started in 1997, NIC was taken to the Cape High Court for liquidation by the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) in 2008 as a result of failure to service its debt. In addition to the PIC there were other creditors who were pursuing NIC. The total liability of NIC was in excess of R250Million, as a result the Group was unable to invest in its growth. Through balance sheet and business re-engineering, negotiations with creditors the business was rescued from liquidation.
Emerging from a near liquidation situation, the Group started a growth trajectory from being only a funeral services provider to an integrated financial services group offering a variety of products and services. Our investments include a life insurance company, medical aid administrator, Information technology and now recently entered into the retirement fund industry. In 2010 the Group established NUMSA Financial Services ( www.numsafinancialservices.co.za) which is a life insurance, short term insurance and medical aid Brokerage company that exclusively services NUMSA members.
