The Magic of Story Telling with Gcina Mhlope
Gcina Mhlophe realised that she has a passion and love for storytelling in the late 1980s, just as her career as a performer was peaking. The calling to change direction and become a full time storyteller concerned those close to her.
Much of her work is directed at children, ensuring that the crucial tradition of oral storytelling is transferred into print and that the wisdom of generations is passed on to the youth.
Below she speaks to Cape Talk Late Nights Show Host Linzi Bourhill:
"My life is very different to other artists."— Gcina Mhlope, Storyteller
"My love of story telling is very much like a calling, I don;t see the work I do in storytelling as 'work', for me it is a calling it is something that I truly love."— Gcina Mhlope, Storyteller
