Zewande #McMora Bhengu | Gauteng

Zewande Bhengu is a growing, ambitious theatre director who has a strong opinion on the socio-political, the national economical and the general world of arts and recreation.

In 2007 he moved to Johannesburg to study Dramatic Arts at the National School of the Arts, during that time he performed in a number of poetry sessions, open mic sessions, expressions night and the like.

He directed a number of poetic works at this time and his best work was ‘The Speakers’ that earned him platinum certificates upon its success. He was part of the ’21 Poets and Poem’ cast which played at the Jo’burg Theatre Space.Com and the Jo’burg Theatre Fringe Stage.

His later successful work was when he co-wrote and directed FIRE:BURN, which was staged in 2013 during Wits University Orientation-Week, The National Arts Festival, 969 Festival and had its last run at the Drama For Life Festival. He has since won the All Res Council Talent Show, The Christian Action Fellowship Talent Show (Twice) and in a display of versatility, has a number of photographic awards to his name. This year, he has ventured at being one of top tier poets at Word N Sound Poetry + Live Music Series.

      Much appreciated. I do hope I can continue to produce work that is worthy of your kindest regards. The craziness, much like every good thing, is subsiding, so it is safe to come out. lol

    My hommie, who would have thought that one day you’ll be at this stage of life, from the dusty streets of Redoubt (Bizana) to this. God speed my friend, wish you all the best with your work!

      The dusty rurals have played their part in shaping what you see, greatness. But, I am ever so grateful for the support. It really does make a difference when someone from your ‘hood’ has your back. Keep living…

      Greatness. As we all know, no artist is an island. Without the experiences I have shared with you since kudala, I don’t think I would be where I am right now in any respect. We all seek to grow and thanks to your unrelenting support and guidance at times, I am learning which skies to gravitate towards. Keep peace…

    Zewande is a highly motivated and motivating young man. He is passionate about his craft and in unapologetic about it. He’s great use of words and great understanding of the self and others is astounding and his humility is beyond compare. Having Zewande represent Gauteng at the National Arts Festival for the Slam For Your Life National Poetry Slam would be undoubtedly a worthy opportunity for this talented young man but also a great stepping stone for greener pastures. Zewande Bhengu, we salute you 🙂
