Award­win­ning mu­si­cian Nathi Mankayi shows off his favourite items

I carry this pen­cil case with me be­cause it has a se­lec­tion of pen­cils that I

use to write my mu­sic. I love shoes. Th­ese boots are my favourite be­cause they not only look good, but are com­fort­able, too. I like wear­ing hats on stage be­cause they set me apart

from other mu­si­cians. My al­bum – Iphupha La­bantu, is my most-prized pos­ses­sion be­cause it was a labour of love. I bought my fourth gui­tar in 2015. I carry it with me all the time in case I am in­spired to cre­ate mu­sic.
