Creativity has been proclaimed the skill of the future. It was, therefore, an easy decision to launch our latest series Heavy Chef Raw in one of Cape Town’s most creative communities, Khayelitsha. A jam-packed day of talks, presentations and performances, Heavy Chef Raw: The Business of Being Creative was an exciting first in a collaborative series between Heavy Chef and Ghetto Sessions.
Thulani Headman is a truly inspirational character. Coming from a musical family, Thulani grew up in Langa and excelled at sport in his early years. In this remarkable interview with Heavy Chef's Siyabonga Mbaba, Thulani explains his own role models, his family inspiration and his stint in Pollsmoor after being sentenced for criminal activities in the gangster-ridden Cape Flats. Prison became an unlikely learning opportunity for a burgeoning musical career.
