Hailing from Durban, Matyumza arrived in Cape Town in 2008 where he studied Film & Television at City Varsity. While there he was nominated for a short film he wrote and directed at the Bafundi Film Festival. He also got nominated for a VUKA! Award for a PSA he wrote and directed about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

In 2011, he started working for Cape Town TV, a local community television station. There he learnt the importance of activism for the community, which led him to Street Talk where he now works as a filmmaker.
