My Talks

My Talks

Our stories bring about understanding and unity on the deepest level and are a powerful conduit for change.

My talks explore themes of identity, overcoming challenges and understanding their meaning in our lives. They champion the value of one’s own personal story in the face of the story of a community and that of a nation.

I offer the following talks which include storytelling, visuals & music.

  • Keynote address for corporates – 1 hour
  • School talks – 45 min
  • Community talks – various lengths

“Zolani Mahola tells her amazing life story, detailing with such grace and humor how she grew up in the last throws of Apartheid and came of age at the time of South Africa’s transformation. Through her powerful, original music and beautifully, crafted storytelling, we follow her life as she becomes one of South Africa’s greatest contemporary musicians.” Jackie May, Twyg

Zolani is a true South African icon. A story-teller, a thought leader, a creative pioneer, an entrepreneur, a song-writer and (of course) a singer. An African treasure, Zolani has stood on some of the biggest stages around the world, alongside some of the most powerful personalities on the planet. And so, it was an extraordinary privilege to host Zolani on the Heavy Chef stage, hearing her amazing story, listening to Zolani weave her iconic back catalogue, as well scintillating new songs, into the fabric of her own story, a parable for the South African story at large.Fred Roed - Founder and CEO Heavy Chef
