Listen to the story of a young art revolutionary, detailing his journey from Winterveld, north of Pretoria to academic excellence and theatrical mastery. In this week’s episode [Episode 9] of the discovery desk with Sammy G, we speak to Mduduzi Nhlapo, a Theater practitioner, based in Tshwane and working from the State Theater in the capital city.

Sammy G and Mduduzi Nhlapo

Nhlapo who doubles as a part-time lecturer at both the University of Pretoria and Tshwane University of Technology is a masters student at the latter. He is passionate about the arts and is determined to bust the myth that says one can not “live off” the arts. So determine is he that, ¬†although he excelled in Maths and Science in high school. He elected not to pursue an engineering qualification which many perceived as a way towards prosperity and success, and follow his heart’s desire.


This is an extensive conversation which spans politics, feminism and the arts and how this young yet radical artist fuses all of them in his life.

As always Sammy G helps us discover by providing a comfort zone for his guest and allow him to express his inner thoughts and matters close to his heart.
