Percy Vilakazi

Freelancer: Script Writer


Bonga Percy started writing at age 19, writing for a youth talk show called Take 5, on

SABC 1. This was immediately after he left Wits University to find work, after he had

to drop out because of financial constraints. Soon after that, he wrote for the now

defunct Backstage. Since then, he’s written for shows like Scandal, Rhythm City

(where he also served as the show’s Music Director), Rockville, Igazi, Mamello,

Muvhango and many others. He’s currently writing for Uzalo and Skeem Saam,

where he is also the Publicity & PR Manager. When not writing for TV; Bonga writes

for magazines like True Love and Destiny Man, where he went as far as the States

to interview people like Tyler Perry, Trey Songz, Kevin Hart, . In 2013, he co-wrote

Donald’s award winning album Black and White, which featured hits like Crazy But

Amazing and Don’t Let It Burn. He’s also managed artists like Lunga Shabalala,

Donald, Lungile Radu; and served as a SAMA Awards judge for 5 years. But above

all this, his biggest passion is learning and imparting knowledge to young people. He

is currently studying towards his BA in Marketing Communication. My life’s motto:

Don’t follow your dreams: chase after them!
