Born and bred in Lobatse, Poloko Mosarwa is an ingenious Voice Over artist and Event MC. In her own words, she truly warms up to kind people, and one of her greatest weaknesses is Blueberry ice cream. Affectionately known as Phlyhoney on social media circles, Poloko loves traveling and meeting new people.She will be holding the reigns as the official MC for the upcoming and inaugural Gaborone International Whiskey Tasting Festival aptly hash tagged #GIWTF. The vibrant whiskey affair will take place on November 24 at Game City Mall, The New Horizon View from 6pm until 12 midnight, and will see whiskey and spirits aficionados relaxing, mingling and have richly-inspired conversations over a few tipples. We had a chat with her this week…
Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?
I am more of both. I like to search for what I love and keep it with me.
We finish the interview and you step outside the office and find a BWP10 million lottery ticket. What would you do?
Claim it, invest in all my businesses, open The Poloko Mosarwa Foundation and save most of it.
What’s your favourite ’90s jam?
Murder She Wrote. Definitely Murder She Wrote.
If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
A beautiful eagle. Eagles soar – they are fierce and they spread their winds and are unapologetic about it.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
Sleepers. Wait. A hug and 2 shots of liquid cocaine. Ha-ha.
Tell me something about your last job, other than money, that would have inspired you to keep working there.
I am the CEO of my last job. The passion, the drive and the endless opportunities.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
Oh gosh! There is a guy I like that texts me every now and then. The problem is I don’t know his name. Oh gosh!
Pretend you’re our President. What three concerns about the country’s future keep you up at night?
Lack of accountability by our leaders. Lack of synergy between the old and the young to benefit from the overall GDP, and lastly Synthetic diamonds.
What inspires you?
People who became leaders from having nothing. Those people that overcame adversities.
What do you work towards in your free time?
Being the best MC and philanthropist the world has ever seen. And of course an ambassador for my beloved country.
