"Determined to pursue photography as a career, I applied to Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) and awaited for their response. During this period, I continued to practise and refine my skills."

Lungisani's dedication paid off when he won the prestigious Best Photographer award at the Mzansi Arts and Media Awards (MAMA) in 2021.

Lungisani's journey to TUT was not without obstacles. Financial hardships led him to sell his camera while awaiting a bursary.

"However, my unwavering determination pushed me forward. Despite starting my first year at TUT with little in my pocket, I persevered and embraced the opportunities that came my way."
