Gibson Kente, playwright, composer, arranger and producer: born East London, South Africa 23 July 1932; (two sons); died Soweto, South Africa 7 November 2004. The creative legacy of the South African playwright and composer Gibson Kente is proof that culture needn't be the preserve of the middle classes and that theatre can make the world a better place, as long as it does not take itself too seriously. We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view. After Sikalo, Kente left Union Artists and created his own township company. He increasingly opted for musicals which he set in the everyday reality of township life with its drunkenness, violence and politics. There was also pure entertainment - such as the 1977 musical Can You Take It?, a Broadway-style love story.

Gibson Kente was raised in Stutterheim by his mother. He was educated at Bethel Training College Seventh-Day Adventist college in Butterworth until he moved to Lovedale Training College to complete his matric  . Kente's plays were popular for using township popular culture, slangs, fashion and topical issue to reflect on daily life. His success with his first two play motivated him to leave the Union Artists to start his own training centre and production company, GK Productions. He trained famous South African artists and entertainers such as Brenda Fassie, Nomsa Nene and Mbongeni Ngema in the garage of his home in Dube, Soweto
