Khabonina: South Africa’s award-winning leading lady

first_imgSouth African television star, fitness expert, and social media queen Khabonina Qubeka adds another feather to her multi-talented cap. She has won an international film award for her role in the local independent movie, Dora’s Peace. South African actress Khabonina Qubeka gives an emotional and award-winning performance in the drama Dora’s Peace. The film is now available on DVD. (Image: Dora’s Peace official website)CD AndersonIn April 2017, Khabonina Qubeka won the Indie Spirit Best Actress award at the Boston International Film Festival for her portrayal as a feisty Hillbrow prostitute in Dora’s Peace.In the movie, Dora is determined to save a gifted young boy from the violent clutches of organised crime. Throughout her dangerous and emotional journey, Dora rediscovers her own lost humanity. The film was shot on location in Johannesburg, and was released in August 2016. It is also now available on DVD.Dora’s Peace director Kosta Kalarytis also won a Special Recognition award at the US independent film festival, but said the success and heart of the film was all down to Qubeka’s emotional performance.“Dora is [an] emotionally complex [character],” Kalarytis said in a statement announcing the double win.“Qubeka broke the mould of the typical ageing prostitute so often seen in films. She’s not anyone’s sidekick, and her character is memorable, authentic and deeply human. She reflects the reality lived by many women, in South Africa and elsewhere around the world.“We are thrilled that her performance and the film itself have been singled out,” he said. “It’s a great honour.”A wide-ranging careerOf course, most South Africans are already familiar with Qubeka’s energetic personality.Born in Orlando West, Soweto, Qubeka is best known for her various television roles, appearing in Isidingo, Muvhango and Erfsondes, and as a popular judge in a host of reality TV dance competitions.She began her career as a choreographer and musical theatre actress. With a diploma in dance, she won an FNB Dance Umbrella Award in 2003 and has performed in various local productions over the last fifteen years, including a successful UK tour with Richard Loring’s African Footprint show.Qubeka enthusiastically promotes fitness and healthy living, determined to make South Africans healthier. She hosts the Openview HD fitness series Gym eKasi and has a popular YouTube channel, where she specialises in dance fitness, yoga, and developing healthy diet plans.She has also recorded a couple of music albums.  With a strong following on social media, she promotes her body positive philosophy. In between all that, Qubeka also runs her own successful public relations company and recently opened her first Khabodacious Moves dance school in Orange Grove, Johannesburg.Her first film role Dora’s Peace, directed by Kosta Kalarytis, starring Khabonina Qubeka. (Image: Dora’s Peace official website)Dora’s Peace is her first feature film, and with the critical acclaim and accolades for her performance, promises to be her most successful career move yet.Speaking to the Citizen newspaper after she won the Boston award, Qubeka describes Dora as a woman with “seriously badass gusto”, but who ultimately discovers a deeper emotional strength when she has to stand up to a cruel and dangerous world on behalf of a child.“Dora has a complexity that female characters are rarely afforded,” said the film’s producer Dumi Gumbi, “[this] tale of self-discovery and, ultimately, self-respect, is hopeful and inspiring. [Qubeka’s] remarkable portrayal proves that everybody’s experiences deserve representation.”Critics and audiences alike have responded positively to an unlikely South African heroine who chooses to take up the good fight.Qubeka paid special tribute to her own mother in not only inspiring her to flesh out the character of Dora, but also giving her the strength to overcome challenges in developing her multifaceted career.As the film travels around the world, exhibiting at a host of international film festivals, including in China and Europe, Qubeka said she enjoys the low-key exposure, without the baggage of her local fame.“I love the fact that no one knows me at [these festivals] so there was no politics involved since they don’t know [about] Isidingo or any other projects. They literally judged what they saw [on screen] and that was it.”“Khabonina is an actress to watch,” said the film’s local distributor Helen Kuun, “Indigenous Film congratulates her and Kosta for their well-deserved wins. Audiences can look forward to seeing her later [in 2017] in Gersh Kgamedi’s new film She is King.”She is King Movie Poster (Image: IMDB)As a popular local media personality, businesswoman, choreographer, health expert, and now award-winning actress, Qubeka is yet another great example of a phenomenal South African woman, set to take over the world.Source: Citizen, News24, Screen Africa, Dora’s Peace websiteWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

South Africans vie for Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation

first_imgErnst Pretorius’s Draadsitter (Afrikaans for fence sitter) detects tampering on fences of up to 800m, allowing for a quick response before the fence is breached. The device also detects fires. It’s a simple concept, but one with greater ramifications for landowners who need to protect their properties.The invention is one of 11 others to be shortlisted for the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, which “aims to stimulate, celebrate and reward innovation and entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa’. The award recognises especially those inventions that sustainably solve problems in local settings, highlighting how important engineering is to improving quality of life.Speaking to Engineering News, Royal Academy fellow and chair of the judging panel Malcolm Brinded said the shortlisted candidates would now participate in a training and mentoring programme over the next six months, working with business executives and engineering experts. He said, “The training will be focused on proving, scaling up and commercialising their engineering innovations.’Brinded added that “Deciding on the shortlist was extremely difficult as the standard was high, and the entrepreneurial talent was clear to see.’Pretorius, from the University of Pretoria, will join Cape Peninsula University of Technology’s Dr Reinhardt Kotze on the training programme. Kotze’s shortlisted Flow- Viz is an industrial process and quality control system that reduces dependence on laboratory testing, improving efficiency on the production line.After completing the training and mentorship programme, the finalists will present their inventions, after which the winners and two runners-up will be awarded £25 000 (about R457 000) and £10 000 respectively.The competing finalists from the rest of Africa are:University of Nairobi’s Samuel Njugana Wangui, for Chura, a web-based system that allows users to move airtime between their different SIMs regardless of carrier;The Nigerian Army Transformation and Innovation Centre’s Captain Abubakar Surajo, for his removable window burglar-bar system;Nigeria Tolulupe Ajuwape from the University of Ibadan for a mobile payment application, which allows merchants and customers to make and receive card payments using their phones and tablets;A mechanical system to prepare clear banana juice from Dr Oscar Kibazohi, University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania & Makerere University, Uganda;A sand-based water filtration system to provide clean, safe drinking water from Dr Askwar Hilonga at The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology, Tanzania;An environmentally friendly precision fertiliser applicator from Musenga Silwawa at the Zambia Agriculture Research Institute;Latrine systems to improve urban sanitation from Samuel Malinga from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda;A small-scale crushing machine for sustainable gold mining from Rujeko Masike at the Harare Institute of Technology, Zimbabwe;A mobile phone application to teach children the local Shona language from the University of Zimbabwe’s Ian Mutamiri; andA low-cost biodegradable degreaser for mining, agriculture and manufacturing from Chinenye Justin Nwaogwugwu from the Federal University of Technology in Owerri, Nigeria.Entries for the 2015 version would open once this round of the prize concludes, said Brinded.“We are looking forward to the next phase, and the next round of applications in April 2015. I hope all ambitious African engineering entrepreneurs will start planning for that opportunity.”The Africa Prize is supported by The Shell Centenary Scholarship Fund, Consolidated Contractors Company, ConocoPhillips and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

So, it would be a good way to return for both these players,” said Anderson.“I think it is great. We all are eager to see what Novak is going to do when he comes back. And I heard just yesterday that Serena is coming here, so it is obviously very exciting for the tournament.“Serena is the greatest women’s tennis player of all time, and perhaps the greatest competitor -– man or woman –- that I have seen.
