Tumi's passion for acting started at the age of five when she was inspired by the musical Mmabana Mmabatho. She has since graduated with a degree in drama from Wits University and has extended her talents across many genres in the enter- tainment industry. She started out with Arepp theatre, a touring educational group working in the Free State, North West and Gauteng. After the two-year stint she decided it was time to sharpen her skills and put all her energies into attending writing workshops and working on her stand-up routine. To date she has performed in a dance piece in France and does stand-up at numerous local comedy spots. Her ability as a writer has been recognised through her debut writing work for Kenny Makenzo and Nomzamo. Tumi is currently working on For Sale, a drama series for SABC 3.
