Busani Mnyandu is in his third year at DUT, finishing a diploma in Public Relations and Communication Management. One day he would like to run his own event company, but beading comes first. And it’s easy to see that beading is in this passionate 23-year-old’s heart. “I have been doing beading since I was nine,” he smiles, adding that he wants to start an online business where he can showcase and sell his work – along with the work of his community members. “I would like to uplift my community and have a platform where their work can also be showcased, and help them make a living.”
Busani makes ear-rings, necklaces, Alice bands and much more. But his most unique and recent product is the beaded watch – a stunning gift for anyone who likes a bit of colour in their life. Busani’s beautiful watches can be found at Woza Moya in Hillcrest, where he is currently doing his practical, or directly from Busani himself.
