He broke into the music industry with the song, Never Let You Go. Almost a decade later, award-winning musician Tresor Riziki has written and co-produced about six songs for Drake and other international artists. The singer of Congolese origin announces he has ventured into the property business and purchased land at the highly sought-after Cradle of Humankind.




He plans to build an outdoor amphitheater, restaurants, a recording studio, and a boutique hotel. Tresor received funding of R100 million from the Jacquel Ventures investment in November 2023. "I am so blessed to announce the acquisition of a sprawling 500-acre farm nestled in the Cradle of Humankind, a place close to my heart," he said. "In homage to my beloved hometown, I've christened it GOMA. But this is just the beginning of a grand vision. GOMA won't be just another farm; it will be a beacon of luxury and creativity, a sanctuary where dreams in lifestyle, music, fashion, film, visual arts, and emerging technologies converge and flourish. It's a space crafted by us, for us, where innovation knows no bounds," he added.




Born in Goma, the capital city of North Kivu province in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tresor named the farm after his hometown. He was orphaned at the age of 17 and he arrived in South Africa in 2007 to seek a better life and first worked as a car guard, then security guard at night. He is currently dating Dr. Langa Mngoma, the sister of Nandi Madida.
