Victor Victor!!!

I am so glad that Victor Dlamini’s contribition to literature and journalism is being recognized. He has really shown the world that black writers, in all their diversity, exist, and he continues to document our growth. I am sure that the treasure of the future will be the thousands of photos, podcasts and written pieces that Victor has collected. Halala Victor!! Your passion is being rewarded! It is much deserved!

    I concur with Phillippa. If anyone should be recognised for tirelesly putting literature out there AND doing it just for the love of it, it is you.You have my vote.( counts/not,no matter)

    Congratulations, Victor! You give authors a voice - which often confirms that they sound better on paper. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

    Thank you Phillippa for your warm words, and my sincerest thanks to all of you for your commendations. I am delighted that South african literature seems to on the up and up, and it is a real pleasure for me to sit down and chat to the writers and other artists. I enjoy this literary kinship that I strike with each of the people that join me for the Podcast. I must say that I was quite surprised when I heard that I had been nominated for a prize for my show. I thank those who nominated me for finding in my show something worthy of a nomination for this prize

    Well, if one can multiply your ideas, inspirations and desires by identifying with all those literary characters and creations, you could probably live for a thousand years without adding a single wrinkle to your smiling face. If you can get paid for it, so much for the better.

    Have not yet seen the results, but I'm sure the party was a good one! Either way, you're the winner.

    warm regards
