Episode 221 • 18 April 2016

Afternoon Express chats to legendary actress Nomhle Nkonyeni and author Buhle Ngaba.

Storytelling is deeply ingrained in South African culture, be it via oral accounts or writings and television. Today, we're chatting to two storytellers who do just that and do it well. First up, actress Nomhle Nkonyeni talks to us about her legendary career that spans more than 40 years and is one of the country's most respected actresses, having appeared in several local and international productions.

Next, we're on the couch with Buhle Ngaba, an author and playwright whose new book 'The Girl Without a Sound' empowers young black girls in South Africa.

In the kitchen, Mexican Corn Soup is on the menu.
