Introducing the SimplyBiz Art of Storytelling Hub


SimplyBiz, powered by Nedbank, has recently launched a storytelling internship that is designed to uplift, upskill and develop youth business owners in the creative industry.

  • SimplyBiz is sponsoring 3 candidates for a 1–year learnership.
  • The interns will be trained by highly talented and experienced video and social media content producers in the art and science of digital storytelling. They will get access to video editing
    equipment and software to enable their learning.
  • They will also receive business skills training by a professional business coach.

Meet our first Storytellers


Sibusiso Bengani


Hi, I’m Sibusiso, storyteller and digital content creator, from Dundee in KwaZulu-Natal. My calling is videography. I’m excited and proud to be a part of the Storytelling Hub. Let me wield my craft to tell the story of your business.

I truly believe that if a picture can paint a thousand words, a video can paint a thousand more!



Nkululeko Pelo


Hi I’m Nkuli, founder of Chekeleke. I grew up in the townships of Ntuzuma and Katlehong. Travelling taught me to see things differently and I became a storyteller as a result – sometimes I even told true stories! I’m a keen photographer and that is how I ended up at the Storytelling Hub. I’m so excited to be a part of this great initiative and can’t wait to wow you with our stories.

I became a questioner: 'Why do we do things this way?' or 'Why is that weird here, but cool there?'


It’s a win all round, because we believe in Action Learning – as part of their practicals, these interns will produce storytelling content for selected small businesses identified through SimplyBiz,
as well as content for SimplyBiz itself.
