Boity Thulo confirmed that she is in fact a sangoma in 2016 and ended weeks of speculation after she posted a picture of herself dressed in the traditional attire associated with a sangoma.
In her post she confirmed that she was a sangoma with the following statement:
"They called. I answered. The proudest, most incredible day of my life. A beautiful gift that I will never take for granted. #ThokozaGogo #ThokozaGogo #KgosigadiDabulamanzi #Blessed #OwnYourThrone,” she captioned the post.
She has opened up about her spiritual journey and the reasons she chose to pursue the role of a traditional healer.
Despite her career in entertainment she made it clear that she put her calling as a sangoma first and her media persona comes second.
"They're two different people (Boity and Gogo Boitumelo) and I can do it both. If I was not born to do it both (being famous and being a sangoma) I am sure that my ancestors would remove one to ensure that I concentrate on the other. I think I've found a nice balance and I'm treading carefully on this journey when it comes to my calling. I don't take chances if they say I can't do something or I mustn't do something, I don't ask, and I will not try fight for Boity just for Gogo Boitumelo to get sidelined."
She also maintains that she is following her ancestral calling and has not become a sangoma to further her career because she is deeply respectful of tradition.
