Rali was born 22 December 1979 in a rural village of Modjadji , Limpopo Province,South Africa. He attended primary school in the village and moved to Johannesburg, Etwatwa (Daveyton) to complete his high school. He was accepted to study Bachelors of Business and Administration at the University of South Africa (Unisa). While studying he had an opportunity to meet with a real estate agent in one of the suburbs of Johannesburg. They explained what the business was about and how anyone with a drive can participate in the property industry.
