Matwetwe is a coming of age adventure following Lefa and Papi, best friends and recent high school graduates, on the hustle of their young lives. Over the course of an action packed New Year’s Eve in the iconic township of Atteridgeville, the boys try to score a huge deal, dodge a kingpin and his violent minions, get the girl and ultimately save their lives in this hilarious escapade.

MY TWO CENTS
Without giving away any spoilers about the film – I will say that it does leave you thinking “I have not seen a film like this in a really long time, and I’m glad I did.” Interviewing the guys from Matwetwe was refreshing, and answers to how Black Coffee joined the project, it’s international success and how the leads were picked out of a crowd – are all answered in the podcast below. Head out and watch Matwetwe releasing nationwide on the 25th January 2019.
I have carte blanche on what I put out compared to local television or radio stations, so I decided to give you the full, uncut and uncensored interview with all the guys. Enjoy.
A while ago I decided to test out recording my first podcast series. Knowing that producing a passion project is the easiest when you have an actual passion for the subject material – I chose looking into different facets and people within the South African comic book industry.
Rules for podcasting is something we can definitely talk about in future posts, but I wanted to put out a spot of my first journey into series podcasting. If I had to advise you on one thing, it would be to keep it simple and safe for your first go – kinda like this 5 part series. I sourced different people in the industry that would allow me some really interesting conversations around what fanboys and girls would love to hear.
As you advance, you should implement the core principles of storytelling, and take your time in a mass load of pre and post production. But again. This will be a conversation for a soon-to-be-published later date.
I just want to encourage everyone out there to tell their story. Your life is important and interesting, and it should be shared with the world. Find the pearls and make almanacs of your journey, in whatever you want to delve into.
This series has five parts. And my guests were really cool. An artist, and influencer, a comic store owner, a horror fiction author – and myself as a panelist at the 2018 ICON Comic and Games Convention.
Please feel free to ask ANY questions about podcasting in the comments section and I will be glad to help out.
But in the meantime. Enjoy.
Black, White And Everything In Between – A South African Comic – Jason Masters (Marvel/DC)
Two years ago I had the honour of teaching a very talented student named Wanda. Not only did he display immense broadcasting talent, but he is an incredibly impressive youth. Today, you will see an example of why that is true.
He recently started a podcast series called “My Father’s Son“. I am sitting here not knowing what to write about this podcast to do it sufficient justice. I am beaming. In fact, being able to feel like as much as I believe in the talent of Wanda Sokutu, I feel like even that was an underestimation.
Wanda lost his father in 2017, and subsequently his mother the year after. I watched him go through one of the most difficult times in his life. But I am glad I am listening to this story. I wish we all had a series like this to know our friends and family better.
The podcast is detailed. It is created with care and attention. It is truly phenomenal, and I would love to take some kind of credit in his explosive success – but I can’t. This is all Wanda. And the podcast that deals with the tumultuous relationships between fathers and sons – is not just about that. It is deep and insightful. It’s inspirational. And so, so honest. And absolutely worth every listened to minute.
I was lucky enough to be welcomed back as a panelist to ICON CGC this year. I was invited to speak on a specific topic, namely “The Art of Conversation”.
The power of the spoken word in podcasting is now for everyone, including you. Creatives are everywhere. I encourage you to create a voiced almanac of your life – celebrate the sound your life right now. And start casting away!
I recently caught up with horror fiction author Jason Hes ahead of his appearance at Comic Con Africa, which is taking place from the 14th to the 16th of September. He’s a big deal. He’s won stuff. Have a listen to what we talked about and if you like what you hear, you can buy his book ‘Our Immaculate‘ over here.
