Bonisani Sibeko

Bonisani Sibeko was born in South Africa, but grew up in the United Kingdom where his grandfather was living in exile. As a young boy and teenager, he was already interested in the written word, spending his free time writing poetry, short sci-fi stories and lyrics. In a surprising turn of events, Bonisani was recruited by the South African State Security Agency where he learned, as an operational scribe for ministers and even the president himself, how important it is to write concisely and engagingly about factual matters. While his current day job is in property management, Bonisani is also a musician, traditional healer and writer. Having assumed the pen name King Afrika Sibeko, he is looking forward to focus increasingly on his calling to write Afrocentric sci-fi and fantasy novels.
