Ndumiso Sibanda

The most charming man I have ever encountered, Ndumiso Sibanda is a filmmaker on his way to greatness. Local hip hop owes him much to date for some amazing footage he's spent hours shooting, editing and directing. MC Mingus' video Final Warning, shot at Tagore's in Observatory was a great production, and his work on the 24 Hour Skills That Pay the Bills video effort had Ill-Literate-Skill collaborating with some of South Africa's finest talents, which includes photography by Max Mogale, styling by Caitlin "The Dutchesse" Hill and Tiger Lily, singer Zaki Ibrahim, producers Planet Earth, Nyambz, Sibot, pH and international hip hopper John Robinson of Scienz of Life. I have yet to see the video, but I'm anticipating it's dopeness... Also, in an outfit called Jou Ma Se Films, he's teamed up with a bunch of young and excitable filmmakers and put together some interesting productions, for one, acting in and directing Welkom By Die Schoemans,  pulling together a hilarious story and polishing it off with flair. Check out Welkom and Final Warning on the tube, I gotta say this young man's future looks bright.
