When we started working on this podcast, my team recommended an “about Lyric” page, citing that the people we engage with would want to know who I am and what I do. On the other hand, I was of the view that who I am is not as important as the work we seek to do through this platform. At this point, I should mention that I was outnumbered to begin with, yet I was convinced I could change their minds and omit the bio.

Needless to say, I lost the vote because here you are, reading my bio. So, let me start by introducing myself:

I’m Lyric Notshe, a.k.a. Lyric The Curator.

Yes, Lyric is my real name (shout out to my parents).

No, I am not a rapper (you’d be surprised by how often this question comes up).

I’m a granddaughter, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, cousin, and, to some, a colleague.

I’m a student of life and living and a teacher of the same.

I am from a generation dubbed ‘born-frees’ but really I was born into a period of transition, and I think that is one of the reasons I often live in the grey areas of life’s transitions.

I am an introvert, but not socially awkward.

My weakness is flour, and black is my colour of choice.

I am a custodian of ancient wisdom and a carer of present wounds.

I’m inherently polite; my facial expressions, on the other hand…not so much.

Oh, I enjoy laughing (in fact, I’m laughing right now).

I am many things, really, but one that stands out at this point in time is that I am a holder of space for those who want to brave the wilderness of self-discovery and self-actualization.

Now that you know a little bit about me, you might be wondering why I chose to start a podcast. Well, I like documenting and holding space for soul work, and this format allows me to do both. Soulful Restoration is here to separate fact from fiction, truth from reality, and good from evil.

I believe in the power and greatness of the African people, and this is my contribution to the restoration of the African psyche so we can be unapologetic and intentional about being great people. I hope that this work will meet you at the point of your need and propel you forward.

May God heal your thoughts and bless the work of your hands.
Love and Light,
