UniZulu honours Duma Ndlovu.

Dumakude Ndlovu, a legendary dramatist and television producer, has been awarded a second honorary degree.

The University of Zululand will award him a PhD in Creative Arts, which he will use to further his career.

According to a statement from the university, this is in recognition of his enormous contribution to the creative arts sector.

According to the statement, he also had a significant impact on "iconic artists like as Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, and Nigeria's Fela Kuti."

The University of Zululand made the announcement on its Facebook page.

Duma couldn't be happier with the situation.

"I am delighted to have been awarded this honorary doctorate," he remarked. It's a tremendous honor for me. I'd want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the university. It is humbling to have one's efforts recognized in this manner, and God has been kind."

"I shall be getting an honorary PhD in Creative Arts from the University of Zululand today," said the recipient (Ongoye). "This will be the second such accolade for me; in 2011, the University of Venda (UNIVEN) awarded me a PhD in English (honoris causa) as a result of my work in the field of English," he stated.

"This has been an incredible year, and I would want to express my gratitude to God Almighty as well as my ancestors. It is a major gesture that will serve as a tremendous confidence booster.

"Sometimes we get up every day and go about our business. After that, we make an additional effort to ensure that we present ourselves in the best possible light. But the fact that you are leaving a legacy and leaving a mark is not always recognized. It is only when organizations such as the University of Zululand take the time to recognize your achievements that you begin to understand the significance of your work. "I am forever humbled," Duma expressed his graduation.

Upon his return to Mzansi in 1992 after his sojourn in the United States, he began working in the television sector. Muvhango, his first big television drama, was the first ever Tshivenda drama to appear on South African television screens.

He has contributed to a number of projects, including Woza Albert, Asinamali, and Bopha, among others.

He is the creator of the famous Zulu television programmes Uzalo and Imbewu.

His industry friends, colleagues, and fans have all expressed their shock and dismay at the news.

"Congratulations, you have become our all-time source of inspiration," Saul Kgomotso Molobi commented. Please accept our gratitude for serving as a point of reference for us when we are attempting to counsel our adolescent children on the importance of education, especially for those in the entertainment industry."
