CHOSEN BY TEBZA
Tebza, aka Tebogo Malope, turned getting arrested in Somalia into an opportunity to direct Tempy Pushas - and win his first South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA).
For that alone, he'd be our hero, but since then he's also won a second Best Director SAFTA, for the wildly popular soapie isiBaya; he's directed the feature film For Love And Broken Bones, which won Best Film at Portland and another SAFTA, for Best Actor (Mduduzi Mabaso); he won a Gold Cannes Lions for Best Use Of Film for an innovative Cadbury campaign; and he directed Kwesta's hit Spirit music video, which has over three million YouTube views, was nominated for a South African Music Award, and was chosen by Control co-director Michael Cleary as his favourite African music video.
Tebza signed to Star Films in 2018.
