- Toya Delazy used Mzansi's celebration of Heritage Day to share some traditional Zulu values with her fans
- She pointed out the importance of women in society before colonisation
- The muso also called on men and women to embrace who they are and stand tall
South Africans are celebrating a very special day today - Heritage Day.
The day gives people in Mzansi an opportunity to proudly show off their cultures and muso Toya Delazy used the opportunity to share Zulu values with her fans on social media.
Toya is a strong woman who backs down for no one and nothing and she's not afraid to be different. One thing she clearly feels strongly about is culture.
She came under fire for the outfit she wore to her grandfather’s birthday celebrations. Someone claimed that the outfit should only be worn by men and Toya slammed the tweep for his comments by referring to them as homophobic.
Briefly.co noticed that she also used the theme of heritage to tell women they must embrace themselves and me to embrace the masculinity.
"I'm remembering these values in light of what is happening in our society today. We have drifted so far from our heritage - I want to encourage women to embrace themselves without fear & for men to realise that they can embrace their masculinity without femasculating women."
What an inspiring message to share on this day on which we focus on our roots and heritage.
