I, Masingita Isaac Tyebileyo was born in Soweto at Baragwanath hospital in the generation of the early nineties. The name Masingita was given to me by my mom, which is a tsonga name that means miracle (simangaliso). The reasoning behind my name is due to the fact that my mom found out she was pregnant with me on the 7th month of her pregnancy .
“SO I’M LIVING THROUGH THE EXISTENCE AND MEANING OF MY NAME. SHOWING MY MIRACLE THROUGH MY CREATIVE WORK, WHICH IS FASHION AND PHOTOGRAPHY. ONE WORD FOR MY WORK ISIMANGALISO/ IT’S SHOCKING.”

Eyezak photography was established in 2016. The name eyezak photography comes from my second name which is Isaac so the eyezak reflects to the lens of the camera that captures the moment.
