Duduza motivational speaker uses his past to help others

Sibusiso Shabangu’s passion for the community has led him to motivational speaking. He says he does not want anyone to make the mistakes he has.

Duduza – Born and bred in Duduza, Sibusiso ‘Sbu’ Shabangu (35) says he always knew he was called to make a difference in his community.

“I became a stage actor at an early age, performing drama and dance at community festivals.

“I knew I was meant to influence people.”

After graduating from The Actors Centre he finally became a professional actor in 2001 and has performed on most of South Africa’s big stages.

“The calling of becoming a motivational speaker was discovered while I was going through a difficult time financially and in my relationship.

“Things were not going well for me at all.”

Sbu says during that time he also met his father, who died soon after.

“I suffered a lot of loss and prayed that God would help me.

“But God said to me ‘I will use you to change other people’s lives’.”

He has since gone on to do motivational talks on social issues and on day-to-day experiences.

“I also touch on the topics of drugs, crime, teenage pregnancy, HIV and unemployment.

“I talk about my own experiences.”

Sbu believes that one of the most important factors is surrounding oneself with good friends.

“Believe in yourself and in what you are doing.

“And study, as much as you can.”
