Lelethu Lumkwana

1984 – 2008

A creative soul, Leza lived her life to the fullest – and this showed in everything that she did. The former editor of True Love Babe had previously worked as features writer for Cosmopolitan and True Love magazine. Prior to her untimely death, she was the editor of Campus Times, and a freelance writer for a number of other publications. Leza’s online presence on Studio 83, as well as her blogs, Couture Conversations and on Gusto Projects will be sadly missed. Her dream to open her own media company was about to be realized.

Leza’s love for Africa was limitless and fueled by mountainous passion. True to her independent self, she went to the Lake of the
Stars Music Festival in Malawi on her own – and loved it! Botswana and Nigeria were also honoured to feel her presence. Over and above traveling, her dream was to break borders and create a collective voice for artists, writers and other creatives across the continent, and to the rest of the world.

If you had had the opportunity to have met her, you would have recognized a truly beautiful and compassionate soul. Leza was a dreamer, whose thoughts and actions were often more profound than her young age.

She was also the SA Editor of
