Bonnie Mbuli

Bonnie Mbuli

Bonnie Mbuli was born in Soweto, South Africa.

She was discovered by an actor’s agent when she was just thirteen years old.  Her first job - shortly thereafter -  was in a television series titled Viva Families.  This was followed by cameo roles in various international productions: Born Free 2 and Cave Girls. Bonnie went on to present several magazine programs for television including Teleschool, Zapmag, Technics Heart of the Beat and Limits Unlimited.

In 2001, Bonnie was cast as the lead role in the hit television soap opera, Backstage aimed at the South African youth market. She was later given the role of Portia in the series Gazlam and afterward as a detective in the series Zero Tolerance.

Bonnie hosted a talk show in South Africa on SABC 1 entitled True-Life, won a role in the mini-series Homecoming, and appeared in two Canadian television series: Charlie Jade (a sci-fi epic) and Scouts Safari (an adventure series set in the African wild). She had a starring role in Home Affairs for Penguin Films: a popular thirteen-part series about the lives of five very different women. Bonnie went on to appear in television series Soul City and Hillside (for SABC 1 and SABC 2): she played the lead in both. She was then cast in the ground-breaking series, The Philanthropist for NBC (later on SABC 3), a prime time American action drama TV series.

She has played the role of singer Dolly Radebe in the film Drum; the lead role in the Danish film Blinded Angels, directed by the acclaimed Jon Bang Carlsen; and she starred opposite Tim Robbins and Derek Luke in the Phillip Noyce Universal Pictures blockbuster Catch a Fire.  The Washington Post had this to say about Bonnie's performance in Catch a Fire : “South Africa's Henna Is ‘On Fire'”.  She also played Zindzi Mandela in Clint Eastwood’s film Invictus about Nelson Mandela’s involvement in the 2010 rugby World Cup which also starred Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon.

Bonnie is more than just a household name in South Africa: she was a child star who won the hearts of South Africans across the country and continues to blaze trails as an inspiring role model. Her influence reaches beyond South Africa: she is said to possesses a ‘talent reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’ by the New York Times.  Well-travelled, highly articulate and possessed of an agile mind, Bonnie carries herself with an elegance, grace and élan evident to all. She is frequently on the cover of South Africa's glossiest magazines and continues to feature on the many current and popular radio and television shows.

This multi-talented performer is also a skilled MC for high-profile events, and her voice – a velvety alto – is much in demand as a voice-over artist.

Bonnie has starred in e.tv’s Rhythm City in a recurring role, playing the intriguing, powerful and sometimes crazy Nozipho; on Mzansi Magic’s drama series Rockville as the feisty Dudu and on Etv’s ground-breaking crime investigation series Traffic: the first of its kind to star a female on South African television.

In 2015, Bonnie starred opposite Sir Kenneth Charles Branagh as police woman Grace Mthembu in the popular British series Wallander.

Bonnie came third on M-Net's popular television show, Survivor Maldives - "Celebs vs Plebs". On Survivor, this beloved star came across as a positive and nurturing soul and with a strong mental spiritual and physical backbone.

After a three year stint as host on the South African lifestyle show Afternoon Express which has one of the largest viewerships in South African television, Bonnie returned to the small screen with a bang starring in Season 1 and 2 of BBC One’s Noughts and Crosses where she plays the formidable Jasmine. On South African television, she currently stars in Season 2 of Mzansi Magic’s riveting political drama, The Republic.

Bonnie is also a published author: her memoir Eyebags and Dimples is a best seller in South Africa and is available in most major bookstores nationwide.

Community and social development are passions very close to Bonnie’s heart. Her has done extensive work with abandoned children and in South African orphanages has been influential in her has become a spokesperson for Adoption Voice S.A.

Bonnie is one of the best-loved and most appealing stars in South African. She has an undisputedly august and professional reputation as one of the most multi-talented celebrities in the South African entertainment industry.

Jimmy Creates

Jimmy Creates

Popularly known as Jimstone, his multi-talents have always been nurtured by his love of not only music but acting, literature and sound production. He's mostly as good as he is because of how much attention he paid to little details and imitating accents throughout films and theatrical videos he watched. This moulded him into a songwriter, musical producer and voice-over artist with hopes of doing more on-screen acting work in the near future.

George believes he has always spent more time trying to challenge himself instead of doing what's known as trendy or popular. This is how his first opportunity as a voice over artist came, working at energy FM (2016-2018) hosting a 9-12 am show called "The Subtle Invasion".

George was asked to fill in for a voice artist who couldn’t make it to the recording, which left the producers stunned at how well his first go at it went. This landed him more work for commercials both local and international.

After completing high school (Northern Academy 2009), he went on to get formally trained in IT networking at CTI, program management and sound engineering, but it seems most of the action he enjoys more is music and voice-acting.

His inspiration comes from the daily emotions and thoughts that he finds hard to express in any other way besides music or art, generally. Love, despair, happiness and every other feeling sparks the different sides his audience has come to experience in his versatile talents.
