Redi Tlhabi’s new book Khwezi: The Remarkable Story of Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo broke book launch attendance and sales records recently.
The response to the event at Hyde Park Exclusive Books was so overwhelming that the launch was moved to an open area in the mall downstairs. Over 700 people attended the launch, and over 400 books were sold—virtually unheard of for a local author.
The book has become an overnight bestseller and is about to go into its third print run after just two weeks on the shelves.
Tlhabi is donating all proceeds from the book to Kuzwayo’s family.
