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!
The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not realizing what the future may hold.

Imaan Latif


Your human journey is one of polarized identity. You experience adulthood, childishness, your masculinity, femininity, your blackness, whiteness, your rich and poor but never have we sat and reflected on our negligence as much as our successes. 

Have you the privileged? Have you the time?

The world is currently moving at a faster pace than it ever has before. With the conveniences of technology not only does research show how cancerous our human habits have become to mother nature and ourselves but also how desensitized and diminished our spirits have become towards one another.

The white noise of the news separates us as people announcing that there are two problems in the world: "My problem versus your problem"

I've had the privilege to find myself in time. The new age Millennial Dilemma and my Harley Davidson came in the form of Kundalini Yoga. As I reflected upon my Blunt Mentality and Rebellious Queer Muslim identity I found that nothing happens in isolation.

I found a group of artists in the form of The V Company SA. I sought a group of queer muslims in the form of The Inner Circle SA. And finally discovered a group of yogi's in the form of AKYTTSA

Once I embodied my identity as Imaan Latif, I found my spiritual self Meher Sangat Kaur and took Sovereignty over my Shakti (female divine energy) and created Sovereign Shakti, a consciousness and wellness movement that awakens people to understanding the importance of self love through self reflection with the tool of self discipline towards the healing and harnessing of universal suffering and elevation.

You are vindictive towards your own capacity of projection by staying in a state of unpreparedness. Ultimately, this is self defeat.

Lets turn Commotion into Devotion.

The revolution is now and it begins with you.
