Dim-Dep gave me my big break
My talent was discovered by Atlas Duma when he saw me performing at the Bat Centre in 2015. He spoke to me about the environmental theme of Dim-Dep and I was fascinated. Instead of pure entertainment which I was used to in the theatre industry, this was a rare and engaging production that focused on real and burning issues for our communities. I acted in both 2015 and 2016 productions and I was completely changed. I am now so much more alert on preservation of natural resources. I believe that it is every single person’s role to raise awareness of this so that you can change other people’s understanding and behaviour towards environmental issues that affect us deeply. This is certainly how I have lived my life since then. Last year, I signed up with a leading agent in Johannesburg and acted for film and TV industry. The most exciting for me is Umcebo kaBaba (my father’s inheritance) which will be aired on Msanzi Magic. Then Dim-Dep Musical 2018 called me back to Durban. This show is in my blood. I love it. I will again play a lead role, Mpume in the 21st Century of this show that goes back to the stone age. So I am here to act but also play a role as a brand ambassador.
