Manyelo’s work in the copywriting and advertising industry has recently earned him a Loeries Young Creative Award, and his creative prowess, passion, and tenacity have resulted in him moving from strength to strength in the industry.

Growing up in Polokwane, Manyelo noticed a lack of interest and resources in the creative landscape. However, with the support of his grandmother, who encouraged him to enrol at Vega, he won a Pendoring award in his first year and found his niche as a story-teller. After Vega, he moved to FCB Africa, and became one of the agency’s most award-winning copywriters – such as winning Best of Show in radio at the One Show Awards and a Graphite Pencil at D&AD.

Manyelo’s days aren’t only spend at the writing desk, however – he was the Inaugural Comedy Central Inter-Agency Comedy-Knockout Champion and a judge of the 2016 Loeries non-English TV, Radio and Print category.

Representation in the ad industry is an important focus for Manyelo, and through the genre of interesting and inventive story-telling, he’s creating an unforgettable legacy as one of South Africa’s most esteemed ad industry copywriters and cultural workers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row_content”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More BAYEZA18 Nominees” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes” link=”|||”][vc_basic_grid post_type=”post” max_items=”4″ style=”load-more” items_per_page=”8″ element_width=”3″ gap=”2″ orderby=”rand” item=”648″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1534054578955-0d2e7bbd-ca2c-10″ taxonomies=”32510″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
