About Us

About Us

CreateZA Media was born out of a passion for content creation and the ability to produce quality media and productions across the spectrum of the digital space. Since 2012, each of the founders spent years forming groups of content creators across Facebook and WhatsApp as well as hosting events for YouTubers across South Africa. This was to connect and train these creators in their craft. These groups grew and expanded to new platforms such as Instagram and TikTok while the events extended across the country reaching seven of South Africa’s major cities. Throughout this time our team was building the community aspect of CreateZA as a passion project while the founders were studying and working full time in media production. During these years they were trained and seasoned in different aspects of media ranging from productions, photography, and graphic design to web design and social media. While our core team is in Gauteng, we also have a network of creators across South Africa with whom we’ve worked and whose skills we highly approve of.


Building the community of creators in South Africa and help them by equipping them with tools and values to improve and sustain their content.


We are a platform for the South African creative community to connect, learn and grow to instil community values.

Tsholo Tshenkeng

Copy Writer

Hello, I’m Tsholofelo, a determined and imaginative writer. 
I studied a BA Languages degree at the University of Pretoria (UP), achieving distinctions for all of my German grammar and literature modules as well as English modules. In 2019 I was awarded a scholarship to study English literature at the University of Konstanz in Germany for 4 months. I enjoy writing both prose and poetry. My poetry has been published several times by a UP literary society and the Poetry Institute of Africa. I served as the Secretary on the executive committee for *The Inklings Society for the Arts* for 2 consecutive years. During my time in office I pioneered a project to unite creatives who had a passion for music, including writing and playing it, to create new music and perform it at an event. Seeing creative talent nurtured and expressed in a plethora of ways is of the utmost importance to me. 
As a writer I strive to create something special out of a simple idea and communicate something significant with a few simple words.
