Kasi Times

Editor and Publisher, June 2010 - present

Launched in Gauteng on the 28th of May 2010, Kasi Times, which was founded by Nonhlanhla Nxumalo and Sibusiso Mahlangu under Star Hero Communications, is a pioneering magazine that seeks to upend social stereotypes of young South Africa. Through business, career, fashion, lifestyle, art and culture, and success stories, we have reintroduced to new ‘young adult’ to South Africa in a vibrant form that had never been seen before: telling our own stories and presenting a colourful, more rounded view of what it means to be modern, forward-thinking and South African in the 21st century.

Kasi Times showcases success stories, aiming to motivate, inspire and empower a new generation of go-getters seeking to make their mark in business, in their careers, and in their lifestyles. It showcases trendsetters and the vivacious lifestyle of young South Africa with all its rich complexities.

Drawn to the notion that every black South African is connected to ekasi in one way or another; it’s one thing that binds us – a thread that grounds us and sets the benchmark of the heights we want to reach in our lives. Our pages reflect the diversity of the black South African, with contributions from all over the country and an inclusive audience that continues to grow exponentially.
Kasi Times lauds the urbanites, the kasi-rooted change-makers, visionaries and all the inspirational men and women who exemplify what it means to be proudly South African in an ever-changing global community.

Kasi Times' target demographic is predominantly young, urban followers. They are young, ambitious, professional, creative and entrepreneurial. They are determined to “make it”- with or without tertiary education. They are very aware of themselves and of the world around them and are determined to make a statement. They aspire towards affluent living as a reward for their hard work. They are black, literate and relatively comfortable with technology. This consumer segment is talented and has great potential. They have big dreams and see the world differently, and they believe they can be a success.

Testimonials

Sibusiso Mbuli

""Only but a few can immerse themselves in their work like Nonhlanhla does. None can dedicate time, welcome pressure and have drive and passion for solving the most challenging of tasks more than she does.

Working with her on a variety of projects for over 5 years has been a pleasure and honor as I observed the professional, responsible and personal discipline.

Society needs more dependable, reliable, hardworking, honest and consistently capable and competent professionals of her calibre.

It is with absolute pleasure that I can attach my name to this recommendation (and sound like I was paid to do it or sucking up)."
