In 2006 he was a Brett Kebble Award Exhibition Finalist and he has exhibited successfully in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Austria and Germany.  His solo exhibition was held at The Winchester Hotel in Cape Town in 2003.  Magandela has been involved in a number of workshops and has taken part in at least ten group exhibitions, the most recent being, Telling our Story  (2014), The Cape Gallery, Cape Town.
