The University of Pretoria has awarded  Generations The Legacy creator with a doctorate honorary in  Literature.

Dr. Vundla told Sowetan that it is good to be recognized for what he does.
He said: "Please don't call me Dr. Mfundi Vundla because people go to school and write a thesis before walking around calling themselves doctors. I have a bachelor of arts and master's degrees and that is where it ended. I am being honoured for the contribution and the mark I made in the society,

"It has been a long time coming. It is wonderful to be recognised for what you have done. I think I deserve it. I have done a lot to transform the industry in this country. I am one of the pioneers, especially in local content creation and television. I mean Generations and Backstage opened doors for local content and channels like Mzansi Magic. This thing started with me."

Vice-chancellor and principal professor of The University of Pretoria Tawana Kupe said he is pleased to honour Dr. Vundla and Dr. Ibrahim for their service and contribution.
"The arts play a vital role in holding a mirror up to society. Mfundi Vundla and Abdullah Ibrahim have been trailblazers in their respective fields, and have told uniquely South African stories. I am pleased that we are able to bestow these honours on two giants of the arts in recognition of their service and contribution to the country and the world.”

Another veteran who recently got a doctorate honorary is the legendary actor  Khotso Nkhatho.

He was honoured by the Central University of Technology (CUT) with a Doctorate in Communication and language Practice.

Announcing the Good news on Facebook CUT wrote: "As a Free Stater by birth, Dr. Nkhatho is a great ambassador for our province. He is a qualified educator, which is what the CUT Faculty of Humanities strives to produce with students who enroll for further studies in education.

“As the University is currently revising its language policy, Dr. Nkhatho’s experience and knowledge of Sesotho and acting represent what the faculty strives to achieve,”

Dr. Nkhatho is popularly known for his character Tshitso on Mopheme. In 2019 the South African Film And Television Awards (SAFTAs) honoured Dr. Nkhatho with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
