Discover There’s a hero in all of us. But for some the hero never sees the light of day.

When life challenges us, we are called upon to be courageous, brave, strong. We are even called upon to be warriors, leaders, unifiers, community builders, visionaries.

The starting point of all greatness, of all success is that little place within. What we go on to achieve becomes a manifestation of who we are within.

It’s not easy. Many find it hard to succeed because they never call upon their inner hero. This story aims to ignite the human spirit to rise above itself. And to inspire us to dig for that hero that lives within and bring it to the fore.

It’s a story that reveals that there’s a King and Queen that resides within us all waiting to rise.

FAITH
There is a strong and recurring theme of faith in the story, with reliance and belief in the divine.
MENTORSHIP
Nandi and Dingiswayo are prominent and trusted mentors to Shaka. They recognise his gift and Dingiswayo creates a platform for him to rise.
COURAGE
Nandi shows courage throughout the story. It is clear that the courage Shaka displays is an inheritance from his mother.
PURPOSE
Nandi understands her purpose as a mother, just as Shaka understands the purpose of his strategic mind and warfare prowess.
LEGACY
Shaka left a legacy. He undoubtedly made mistakes during his reign, but his legacy is a people that can choose to do things differently and unite to fulfil his vision of a powerful nation.
INNOVATION
Shaka’s leadership brought with it new and improved methods and strategies. He dared to take the risk of doing things differently from what was the norm.
POWER
We see the use of power in both negative and positive lights in characters such as Dingiswayo, iLembe Zwide, Mkabayi and Shaka himself.
RESILIENCE
Nandi and Shaka show resilience through numerous obstacles and challenges in the story. Their will to fight against the odds is inspirational.
Our Narrative
Witness a legacy
2 centuries in the making.
