Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!

Nomalanga


I am Nomalanga 'The Flame' Shozi.

I love to create moments of excitement before the camera and behind the mic. Because of this passion I went into radio and television broadcasting. Realizing my talents, I broadened my horizons and went into acting and event hosting. Where am I right now? Here. Present. Creating these moments, perfecting them as best as I can. Dreaming of working abroad, dreaming of flying my mother to the Maldives, dreaming of buying my dad the best turntables so he can once more hear his beloved vinyls as they take him back in time; he's a gem, that one, with so many vinyls many purists would be envious. I've gone so far away from them (my family), and I miss them very much. I dream of becoming the best at what I do. I dream of my passion for excellence taking me to places I couldn't have imagined.

I dream of one day inspiring others the same way others have inspired me. My biggest dream? To work and do what I love so that I can afford not to stray too far away from them. Or even bring them with me. Because they, make it all so worthwhile.
