Dennilton-born Vusi Mabena has come a long way in his career as an author, actor motivational speaker and poet since his last interview with Mapepeza. The team caught up with him to see what progress he has made thus far.
“I’m currently working on my upcoming album and at the same time I’m doing my part-time course at the Joburg Theatre,” he explained.
He has been busy writing his book series and recording his poetry in a studio album. Apart from the life of being a author and artist, he is also an actor playing in popular TV series. Since his acting career started over two years ago, Vusi has appeared in shows like The Throne and Gomora.
Last year, Mabena was nominated with his second book titled Tears Of The Crawling Hustler & Dreamer Vol. 2 at the South African Poetry Awards. Fortunately, he won the prestigious award.
“I’m now so happy to announce that I’m now Award Winning Author,” he said.
Speaking on the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and how it has impacted his work, he admits that things have been hard.
“This pandemic has affected me a lot, but not only me but everyone because most people are rejected from their works, while some of us we’ve lost our love ones,” he said.
Despite it all, he has persisted in doing his work and has released his new Novel, Book number four in his series called My Warrior Lord Is My Successor And Shepherd.
“On this new Novel Book, I’ve dedicated it to my fans and Almighty God because I’ve managed to sold more than 500 copies in less than two years and I also won my first biggest award In my writing journey” said Mabena.
Concluding his interview with advice to aspiring people who want to follow in his footsteps, he says that discipline is the key to success.
