Most people refer to him as Merky Ty given the fact that he only drives Mercedes Benz and he loves them so much. He is one of the most hardworking youth and that is because he says he loves money and he believes there is no happiness without money. Ty is not an ordinary youth like most of you, he refused to attend university after leaving Vienna College. And yes, he has African parents, who believe that if you don’t attend university you are not going to be successful.
He took this opportunity to prove people wrong and says that you still make it in life even if you don’t have money for tuition and you only went through basic education. He started with the idea of a fast foods restaurant because him and his friends were always hanging out at Hide Out and had to go all the way to Bukoto. “Why not set up a hang out joint so that I could hang out with my friends?” he thought.
His idea of a hang out joint came to reality when he decided to make both a food joint and a lounge. The name of the place is Prancing Porny and the restaurant is called Ty’s Dinnette which is 24/7 fast food restaurant. The place has a unique setting for hangouts, birthdays,dates, you can watch football etc. The business also gives back to the community by employing youths that are unable to get jobs and the good thing about it is so far for the management bit, no qualification is needed apart from the people handling money and human resource. Ty’s main aim is to try to reduce unemployment in any little way as long as it helps.
The only challenges he faces in his business is competition and of course having to break even. He calls upon more youth to invest in businesses or do what makes them happy because you never get tired of something that makes you happy. The lounge is located opposite Shell Lugogo outsideBay Lounge. His Instagram handle is @ Mr_papichulo1 and the business handle is @prancing_ty.
