Mpumelelo "Frypan" Mfula of the Playground 

Mpumelelo Mfula, the streets know me as Frypan. 26 Year old from the East Rand in Gauteng well known for authentically translating South African street culture through entrepreneurship and also a Wits BA Honours degree graduate in political studies.

My first formal business is RHTC Online Store (www.rhtconline.com) an acronym for “Returning Home To Create” which is an online store dedicated to marketing and distributing African owned street wear brands to an international market that currently distributes 13 leading African brands. RHTC has further hosted workshops aimed at its high school customers to endorse a culture of exploring a creative alternative in pursuit of their personal goals.

My most recent venture is a company called The Playground which creates mobile, multi-functional premium furniture. The aim is to democratise superior presentation to offer young African entrepreneurs exceptional quality presentation.
