From Rural Transkei to South Africa’s Stage: Khaya Dlanga Presents His Memoir, To Quote Myself

To Quote MyselfKhaya Dlanga’s memoir, To Quote Myself, will be published by Pan Macmillan this month:

“Struggling womaniser. Leader of the People’s Army Against Typo Nazi. Never eats black Jelly Babies.” – from Khaya Dlanga’s Twitter bio

Khaya Dlanga has established himself as one of the most influential individuals in South African media, particularly social media, a platform he uses to promote discussion on topics that range from the frivolous to the profound.

In To Quote Myself, Khaya recounts entertaining and moving stories about his roots and upbringing in rural Transkei, how he made his mark at school, as well as his time spent studying advertising and as a stand-up comedian.

He also shares his political views and how he overcame homelessness to become one of the most influential marketers in South Africa. He gives the reader a dose of the truly weird and wonderful that is routinely a part of his life.
