Welcome to MPONZMAN!A

This is a professional blog of an experimental student journalist. I showcase my work from both the course and vacational work on this blog. I also add a flavour of my own thoughts and observations.


This is a profile piece on Matthews Nontyi, a playwright, writer, actor and poet from Grahamstown. He has won numerous awards in his career, and has been on stages such as the Market Theatre. He has dedicated himself to nurturing the artistic talent of Grahamstown's youth in previously disadantaged areas.


CUE: While most playwrights aspire for fortune and fame, Matthews Nontyi has treaded a different path. Despite gaining recognition for his work, he chooses to remain in Grahamstown, empowering the rural community through the arts.
