Zikhona Sodlaka has shared her view on the effect that Johannesburg has on rural girls who move there, and she feels the city is actually affected by the girls - for the better. She doesn't agree that Jozi ruins women.
Actress Zikhona Sodlaka has added her view on the debate of the apparent effects that Johannesburg has on rural girls who move there.
TimesLIVE reported that Zikhona joined Relebogile Mabotja as a guest on Metro FM's breakfast show and talked about the issue of Jozi supposedly 'ruining' young women who come to the city for a better life.
According to the actress, the rural ladies actually make Jozi a better place.
Here's what Zikhona had to say:
"Oh no no no... rural girls come to Jo'burg and improve Jo'burg. Oh... how else do you get that high moral standard? And, we are gorgeous. Rural girls are incredibly, strikingly beautiful because we come from all that 'organic' everything.
"The best thing you can do when you get to the city is introduce it to what is organic beautiful life - which is rural life!"
The discussion was started by hip-hop artist, L-Tido, who said the city has corrupted many good girls from out of town.
Singer Nandi Madida earlier gave her own 2 cents on the matter in a lengthy tweet, as Briefly.co.za reported.
"My friend, Jozi is just a city with buildings, restaurants, businesses etc. As someone from out of JHB, you make what you will from this city. It can be an amazing city, full of incredible opportunities, but it’s all about your intention when being here, like any place."
