The third book of Dakalo Malange seeks to inspire readers and tell them how to be successful in life. Malange has just finished a motivational book, titled How do I make it, featuring Muvhango actress Suzan Ravuku, which will be released later this month.

In Malange’s books, he tries to reflect and interpret his society. He also provides inspiration and guidance and a way forward to tackle the challenges which people face daily.

Malange comes from Tshimbupfe village in Vuwani and is currently a fourth-year law student at the University of Limpopo.

Thus far, he has penned two books, namely Tears of an Orphan and Reality and Bruises and Scars.

“My latest book is based on the challenges that we as authors encounter in life. It explains how, using our knowledge, one can tackle challenges and situations in life to make it. I am also planning to host an awards function on 24 December this year. The reaction that I got from readers was and is still amazing, and they are still purchasing my books,” said Malange.

The 23-year-old writer portrays his work as a reflection of day-to-day life in society. “It focuses on challenges and aspects of life that people go through every day. I'd describe my art in the sense that it is meant to encourage and determine things the way they are in life,” said Dakalo.

Dakalo’s desire to write came through seeing one of his sisters, Masindi Netshakhuma from Itsani in Vhembe, who published her first poetry work, titled Vision and Legacy. “I believed from that time that I would also be able to write and publish my book,” said Dakalo.
