The film and tv studios are named Wyza Media Studios and can launch in Polokwane on the 20th of November.

Speaking to Daily Sun the actor said he wants people in Limpopo to inform their own stories using their maternal language. Adding that stories in Limpopo are in abundance however, are told by people because the province doesn’t have the resources.

“I want people in Limpopo to inform their own stories, in their own language and roll in the hay while in their province. There are many stories from Limpopo, but they’re filmed in other provinces because we don’t have the resources. which will soon change because Wyza Media Studios is now open.

The actor who plays the role of Mrekza on Generations: The Legacy says this has been within the works for over 10 years. He had money however he needed sponsors and partners to assist catch on up and running.

“The aim of this project is to require Limpopo to a different level within the film and television spectrum. I’ve had this dream and have saved money for it. I had no sponsors or partners,” he said.

Kope Makgae says people outside the province can access it and are liberal to use the equipment provided.

“This was a sacrifice I used to be willing to form and reaching my dream is amazing. for instance, we have the Kruger park and other people come and film documentaries here. they will hire equipment from us. They don’t get to bring their own.”

This is the second project the actor has embarked on this year. In January he opened a movie and television academy called Wyze Media Academy in Limpopo January.

“I basically want to uplift Limpopo and teach them about the film and television industry, hence the varsity and now the studio. I would like to encourage people and teach them about my journey, give those that don’t have access to information help. I also want to point out folks that I haven’t forgotten about where I come from,” concluded the actor.

Luthuli and his partner decided to assist disadvantaged communities to get their news and stay awake so far with what’s happening within the country currently.
