LEBO MASHILE

a poet, performer, actress, theatre maker, former TV presenter, recording artist, speaker and mother. eclectic, ancient, modern, culturally rooted, responsive, influenced by various parts of the world and futuristic. every day I am challenged and inspired in a myriad of ways.

Björk, Moonchild Sanelly and Maxwell. a lover of mayonnaise. to teach the true history of this country in schools so that every child has an understanding of what happened to us. bungee-jumping and eating shisa nyama in Soweto, visiting The Women’s Jail at Constitution Hill, watching a play at The Market Theatre in Newtown and enjoying a night of twerking at Liquid Blue in Melville. think I had to make people okay with who I am. Now I know that people-pleasing is draining, and that boundaries are healthy.
