Celebrity Magician & MC
A passion for the art of magic that was sparked at university, developed into a hobby and soon evolved into a part time career whilst working as a full-time engineer. Qualified in electronic engineering with an honours degree from the University of Kwazulu Natal and with six and a half years of industry experience, Mahommed Moorad, popularly known by his performing name of Mo Magic, resigned from his lucrative career as a project and customer manager in 2010 to follow his passion for entertaining with the art of magic.
With over 15 years entertaining audiences as a magician, he has spent the last seven of these as a full time entertainer, MC and speaker, spreading joy and delight through his services around the country and abroad.
With guest appearances and features on a variety of South African and international TV shows, Mo’s dream of sharing the art of magic with South African’s via his own weekly TV series was realised in 2015/6 when the SABC commissioned his prime time TV series titled “Magic with Mo”. The show rose to becoming the second most watched South African TV show on the channel behind Isidingo and the only international shows with a higher viewership were Days of our Lives and Bold and the Beautiful.
His passion for entertaining has been recognised internationally, featuring him in numerous publications worldwide. International publication “Gulf News” wrote “...he has now established himself as South Africa’s top magician. Prepare to be astonished”. In February 2017, Mo Magic became the first South African magician to be featured as the cover story for the world’s largest magic magazine “VANISH”, read by over 100,000 magicians worldwide
