About Us

The outfit (Southern Power Media) is the brainchild of Eastern Cape entrepreneur, Simpiwe Pumani who has extensive film and entertainment industry experience. Born in Mdantsane in East London, he started his career as a runner graduating to roles in wardrobe, art direction, production management and full-on production. He has worked closely and has been mentored by industry heavyweights such as Dan Odendaal (Ahoy Films). He also attributes his growth in the film industry to Mia Clarkson who exposed him to mainstream film producers.

Simpiwe also worked closely in media auditing and market research at Spin Insights, a media venture owned by Vincent Clarkson at the time who also grew to be his mentor and close friend. With Ahoy Films he has fulfilled roles of consulting productions manager in various productions which include adverts and music videos for international companies such as Tigo Mobile, Airtel, Barclays and with artists such as D’bang, Navio, Femi Kuti and Khunle to name a few.

The foundation of Southernpower Media rests on the following pillars:

  • Possibility
  • Passion

  • People

  • Persistence

  • Integrity

  • Excellence


As you might be aware our Agency represents some of the largest advertising clients in South Africa. These advertising clients require highly professional and specialised marketing services. To this end I have had a longstanding business relationship with Mr Simpiwe Pumani and SouthernPower. I have utilised Research, Outdoor Audits and Marketing services and have found the company to be a responsible and reliable service provider that is able to meet the stringent demands of our Advertising clients.

I Dan Odendaal, owner and executive producer of Ahoy Films, have worked with Southern Power Media for the past 4 years on an on and off contract basis. They are a great company to work with, very professional and solution driven. The consistency of staying focused on every project we have worked on together shows a great deal of integrity which I appreciate in every company that I work with.

We have been around the country and have gone outside our borders to create amazing pictures together and I applaud the time management and persistence of Southern Power Media in helping to get these projects done.
