Mphumzi has been playing drums at the Ntonga music school since the age of ten and was pushed by his uncle, who is a professional Marimba player, to attend the music school. He is now convinced that this instrument is going to change his life and will help him to live a bright future. Mphumzi wants to travel the world to play music and thinks music is helping to reduce crime in the townships. Like most of the children in Gugs, the crime in the township and the lack of jobs worries him and he thinks having more music school would help to improve the situation.
Meet with Mphumzi through this video interview and discover his vision of life, advises and hopes for his future.
