    An inspiring and creative tribute video conceptualized and put together by Prezence to celebrate Nelson Mandela's life to date around a simple premise... "would the father of our nation have spent 27 years in captivity if he (and others) had access to the same technology, social media platforms and tools as we do today"?. The answer is simple Maybe not? We can't change the past but we can change the future. It is now in our hands.


    The 4 minutes long video tribute, has been a pure labour of love, beautifully put together, from South Africa, Mother City Cape Town to raise awareness to encourage people to carry the torch of positive change from Mandela's example in turn, and do their bit (67 mins today and everyday).


    We hope you find the video inspirational and educational, hopefully deeply moving, thought provoking and resonates with everyone.. but also fun in a language we all understand today.
