Welcome to my website. I’m a South African author, scholar, media innovator, musician, speaker and broadcaster. On this site I unite these different parts of my life’s work. Sign up to my newsletter, drop me a line, or explore my shop for signed books and merch.

About Sizwe


I’m an Oxford PhD currently working as a International Relations Lecturer at Wits University. I’ve published two books on South African politics called Democracy and Delusion & The New Apartheid and have been making music since the age of 13. Explore my media projects, from my current affairs channel SMWX, to musical projects and podcasts. Find interviews, analysis and a splash of music — on the issues that matter in South Africa



Interviews with me


In a world full of constructed stories and pre-packaged narratives, I try to bring a fresh perspective to topics of real political importance. Here you can explore my writing, from academic articles and book chapters, to popular books and audiobooks.
