Melusi Tshabalala

Melusi Tshabalala is a seasoned advertising creative with a career spanning 20 years.

He is co-founder and managing partner at Studio 214, an advertising and design agency. His agency’s ethos is to ‘create work that touches Africans, inspiring harmony, prosperity and the celebration of this electric continent, her people and their phenomenal cultures’. Melusi strives to live by this ethos in his everyday life too.

His greatest joy comes from the laughter of his three wonderful children, for whom he hopes to help build a better African future.

About the Book

Six days a week, Melusi Tshabalala, creative professional and entrepreneur, posts a new isiZulu word on his Melusi’s Everyday Zulu Facebook page and tells a story to help bring the word to life. 

His off-beat sense of humour, razor-sharp social observations and frank political commentary not only teach his followers isiZulu words and expressions, but also offer insight into the world Melusi inhabits as a 21st-century Zulu man.

Melusi’s Everyday Zulu holds up a mirror that shows South African society in all its flaws and its sheer humanity. He pokes fun at our differences and makes us laugh at ourselves and each other. Melusi asks critical questions of everyone, from Aunty Helen Dudu-Zille and Silili (Cyril Ramaphosa) to taxi drivers and toddlers.

His fans love him for his honesty and commitment to pointing out subtle and overt forms of prejudice and racism. Most importantly, he shows the power of words and that there’s um’Zulu in all of us!
