Siyabonga Radebe: “Poor landing in Joburg”
Actor and stand-up comedian “Siyabonga Radebe”, who made his mark on a drama “A place called home” while playing a street kid, shared his life experience while trying to getting butter in Jozi.
Speaking with source this is what he had to say about life in Jozi:
You came from Durban and settled in Joburg eight years ago. What are the life lessons you picked up?
I learnt to be more independent. I got a taste of living alone when I stayed 30 minutes from home at the Durban University of Technology campus. Every Friday I would meet my mother in town and she would give me R100 – every Friday without fail. I feared Joburg because people don’t portray it in a good light. I learnt to be responsible and take care. I was young, just 22, and now I am 30. I think I was fortunate to grow up away from my parents to learn from my mistakes and realise that they were correct on a lot of things.
Was it an easy landing in Joburg?
There was a time we stayed in a room in Orange Grove and didn’t know how I was going to pay the rent at the end of the month.
I used to do gigs at Horror Cafe and be paid R250.
I could buy 2kg of rice and mielie meal.
Then I would walk from Orange Grove to Randburg to perform at Tony’s Grill & Bar for white people.
I was so scared of them, but I resolved to face my fears.
I knew that if I was that good, I would be offered a lift back home. Through it all, my friends and I always knew that our art would get us through.
