Introducing the guest Speaker

BY Mrs K. Stear

ZIKHONA BALI – introduction by the principal
Zikhona Bali matriculated from Riebeek College in 2007 and is celebrating her 10th School Reunion today. While at school, Zikhona was a school prefect, and served on the drama committee and dance committee. She studied Media Studies and Journalism at Boston Media House, from 2008-2010. Thereafter she worked as a Photographer, a Writer, and a Marketing and PR assistant. In her matric year, her peers recorded that their “drama queen gave an outstanding performance in Master Harold and the Boys” by Athol Fugard in the annual drama show, Impi.
In July 2014, she made her screen-acting debut as Ziyanda in Mfolozi Street and played the same role in 2016 in Season 2.  She has appeared in a number of television series; with roles in the Mzansi Magic soapie, Zabalaza, the e.tv soapie Rhythm City and the SABC2 sitcom Gauteng Maboneng.
 
Zikhona played the lead role in an episode of the e.tv drama anthology series eKasi: Our Stories entitled "Thula Thula", about an ambitious young girl whose plans are derailed when her Uncle abuses her. The
episode first aired in January 2016.  In the same year she guest starred in the fourth season of the e.tv drama series Umlilo.
 
In October 2016, she landed her first starring role on television, on the Mzansi Magic teen drama series Is'thunzi, which follows the exploits of four girls who call themselves "Ninjas". She plays Londi, a young
wife who defies her in-laws by returning to school to get her matric.” The show has been praised as a breath of fresh air in the way that it was able to tackle sensitive issues that South Africans face daily.
 
 
 
This is what various revues have to say about her:

  • “Bali is a natural on screen and has a charm that will take her far.”
  • “She is young, black, beautiful and immensely talented.
  • “we see a bright future for this young starlet.”
  • her performances have been hailed as “great and compelling.”

Her matric profile indicated her motto was “Don’t forget where you come from and don’t forget yourself”. We are pleased that Zikhona has not forgotten where she came from and that this humble, endearing young lady with a incredible work ethic and loyalty, was able to get away from her tight filming schedule to be with us today.
Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you Zikhona Bali.
