Nkululeko Msomi provides clean water solution through his company, Ki-Agua

Nkululeko Msomi is 25 years old and is the founder of Ki-Agua (Pty) Ltd. Ki-Agua is in the health, wellness and water industry and supplies organic water filters and glass dispensers. The company has been in operation since January 2018 and caters for individuals and organizations who take extra precautions to ensure their water is clean, safe and without any plastic waste (bottled water). The Ki-Agua Activated Charcoal Sticks have been tested and found to remove nasty toxins from water such as traces of chlorine, lead, copper and mercury. Ki-Agua Activated Charcoal Sticks are also an economical water filter since one stick is biodegradable and reusable for up to three months. The biggest challenge faced by Ki-Agua team is getting the product easily available to customers.



We asked him a few questions regarding entrepreneurship, what they currently need as a business right now and where you can find them:


  1. What advice would you give to upcoming entrepreneurs?


Firstly, find something you are really passionate about, try find a away of making money out of it and then overcome the fear of failing. Secondly, start. You must start. You don’t have to have it all figured out from the beginning but keep the blueprint in mind and begin. Begin selling and offering your products and services. Thirdly, keep having fun. Having fun doesn’t mean there are no challenges along the way to success.


  1. Is there any resource you’ve tapped into, that’s helped you as the founder of Ki-Agua? If yes, what is it? 


Yeah. I can’t say it’s money (yet) because Ki-Agua was started with my bursary allowance mostly. Priorities. I don’t think it’s anything new. I read and researched a lot about my industry. I’m a networker so I knew a few people of which I really studied their success and failure stories. Learn to listen and listen to learn. My Chemical Engineering studies have contributed greatly to the success of Ki-Agua.


  1. If you would request one thing for your business right now? What would it be?


To have more brick-and-mortar stores in South Africa to stock our products. Our online platform is a work in progress, however, our customers would appreciate walking into a zero waste or health and wellness store and buy our products from there.
