Every Thursday evening SABC1 screens a programme called 100% Youth. The show describes itself as follows:
The majority of our youth follow populist cultures but there are those who stand out, are grounded and comfortable in non-mainstream cultures and art-forms; the ones who choose the route less travelled. These youth are not weird; they are independent and ooze a sense of free thinking and confidence, they are 100% youth.
Each week they feature young South Africans that are making a success in creative industries – from recycling entrepreneurs to jeweler makers – and including Masicorp bursary recipient Simphiwe Ndzube, who recently graduated in Fine Arts from UCT.
You can see the full episode featuring Simphiwe HERE – including his return to Masiphumelele library to donate a piece of art.
