Freddie Nyathela

Started as Roadie in 80’s with the music band "Harari" - toured through-out Southern Africa; working in technical and production areas, especially with audio and backline instruments as a sound technician.

He also worked as a production and tour manager for Sipho "Hotstix" Mabuse - touring throughout Southern Africa, and involved in the planning and organising of concerts.

Founded the South African Roadies Association (SARA) in 1992, and participated in the development of technical and production standards with other industry players including Gearhouse SA.

Initiated the development of the only registered accredited NQF 4 Qualification for “Live Event Technical Production”, and the Transformation Forum for the Live Event Technical and Production Services sector.

Initiated exchange programmes with international industry training and professional organisations, including festivals and technical equipment manufacturing companies in Ireland, Denmark, Holland, France, Norway, USA & UK

Creating knowledge and skills development opportunities for young people are an important part of Mr. Nyathela’s work. Hundreds of young South Africans have and still, using SARA’s entry level on-the-job training program, entered the sector and received valuable training, skills development and experience abroad. A number have been placed in many industry platforms on a full-time and professional basis, and some now run their own companies/businesses.
