Sello Maake ka Ncube makes long awaited comeback

Veteran actor Sello Maake ka Ncube has made his long awaited comeback. Not on TV yet but theatre.

He is back with his latest play titled The Voice which premiered at the Joburg Theatre. 

The play is co-written by Maake ka Ncube and Abafazi Bengema, a group of women who are part of his incubation programme.

The story is told by 11 women who highlight the plight of women who have survived domestic violence and discrimination, and issues a call for men to be at the centre of eradicating GBV.

Speaking to Sowetan yesterday, Maake ka Ncube, who has began rehearsing the show, said he looking forward to the Soweto Theatre performances.

He said The Voice is an inspiring call to society to reflect, introspect and to repair the social and moral fibre.

In telling the story, Maake ka Ncube employs a multidisciplinary approach of powerful storytelling in song, spirited dance and audio-visuals, spicing it up with songs of redemption and consciousness.

“Gender-based violence has been a serious problem in our country and it has been for the longest time, and candid enough to admit that I am personally a repentant perpetrator of violence. This happened when I was young, before maturity and took a decision in 1984 that I will change.

“I am taking a very interesting narrative about GBV, chronicling the journey of black people as far back as colonialism through The Voice. Our dysfunctional [state] as black people was hastened by colonialism,” he said.
