Ntobeko Ximba is a creative group head at M&C Saatchi Abel. He grew up in Inanda, Durban, where he played a lot of soccer, wrote poems, sang hymns and aced a lot of tests. As the Head Prefect of his high school, he disappointed many mentors by going into advertising, so he has since been trying to make up for it by becoming the best art director in the world. Ntobeko is passionate about art, music and creating beautiful, meaningful work. His opinions are his own.
