Mo Magic is the performing name of South African magician, Mahommed Moorad. As a child, he saw his brother perform magic and in high school he learnt and performed a few basic effects. Years later, whilst at University, during a period of self- reflection, Mahommed began his journey to discover his UNIQUE purpose. Soon after, whilst sitting with his best friend, working on their electronic design project, they saw David Blaine on television and Mahommed was astonished.“It was as something inside me had shifted. I knew then and there that I wanted to perform the art of magic”, says the magician. This fascination soon grew into a hobby, then evolved into a passion. At university he soon astonished campus students and staff alike and found himself performing at private events. It was soon after that the name Mo Magic arose and was a hit. Having qualified as an electronic engineer (with a Bachelor of Science Engineering degree from the University of Natal, South Africa), Mo Magic began a lucrative career in the automotive industry, whilst at the same time being sought after, by word of mouth, to perform at private and corporate events in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. He first 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. In 2010, Mo Magic resigned from his lucrative engineering career to pursue his passion for magic. He has also performed his unique brand of magic in Angola, Namibia, Zambia, India, Belgium, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Sweden. Mo has shared his magic with audiences across South Africa, on national TV, radio and is featured regularly in the media.
