Thando Fuze


THANDO FUZE is a Durban-based contemporary spoken word artist, writer, founder of SHEfted MInds, arts events coordinator and director at FuzeArtCo.  Groomed under the guidance and mentorship of Dr Gcina Mhlophe, Fuze is one of a few prominent voices in Durban who continually redefines themselves, the state of poetry and the perceptions of others through her creative works. Thando has shared the stage with the likes of the Legendary Baba Madala Kunene, her mentor Dr Gcina Mhlophe, Lebo Mashile, Luka Lesson from Australia and other greats such as Kat François from the UK. 

Over the years, she has not only profiled herself as a brand, but has also helped create platforms for other upcoming artists.  She has worked with Luthando Productions which hosted monthly poetry readings at the Bat Centre in 2011/2012. She has also worked with Burnt Bridges, who also hosted poetry readings and music offerings in 2014.  Currently, Thando is part of a team of poets working alongside Mxolisi Mtshali in putting together the biggest bi-monthly poetry show in the country, Poet In A Suit.
