As word of mouth spread, he began performing at corporate events and other venues. He stepped onto the international scene in 2006 when he toured the United Kingdom performing at private events and lecturing to magicians, before visiting Sweden for the World Championships of Magic.

By 2010, he had given up his day job and was named “Top of the Charts” in South Africa by international publication Gulf News and was the only magician to be featured on this select list of entertainers.

When asked about his remarkable and exponential success, Mo Magic remarks that he is merely “standing on the shoulders of giants”, and that he is thankful to have the guidance of his extraordinary mentors locally and internationally. His peers have given him the nickname of “The James Bond of Magic” due to his unique personality, charm and style of magic.
