- A young sangoma has shared his success story about accepting his calling
- Briefly.co.za caught up with him again to find out what he's been up to
- The ambitious young man still has many bright plans for the future
Briefly.co.za caught up with Thandukuthula Khambule, a modern-day sangoma who we profiled over a year ago. Since sharing his life with Mzansi, the sangoma has received multiple business opportunities. He sat down with Briefly again to share his recent successes.
Thando Khambule says his life changed instantly after opening up to the world. He is now on two radio stations where he is able to share and educate about his spiritual gift.
"I have received great respect from high-profile people, increased clientele, more business opportunities have knocked on my door."
Khambule created the "Pimpdlozi Khambule" brand which aims to inspire others who have the ancestral calling or gift. The brand is now recognised by big industries for its uniqueness, according to the 27-year-old sangoma.
His goals for the future include opening his own academy which will be focused in advancing African ancestral related studies. The ambitious young man also wants to have his own reality TV show one day, showing his day-to-day routine.
Ultimately, Khambule wishes to end the stereotype that sangomas don't have a life.
"You can never imagine that I am a sangoma because of the kind of clothes I wear...I am more into fashion, I go out often just to de-stress by visiting spas, lifestyle and leisure places"
He went on to say that accepting the ancestral calling is a wonderful gift.
"There's nothing wrong for being a sangoma, like me I did Civil engineering at school but still I am a full time devoted sangoma, I still live my life and still consult, help people using my ancestral powers"
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Thandukuthula "Thando" Khambule started his civil engineering studies in college in 2011, but failed a module. He couldn't figure out what went wrong. In addition, he was having strange dreams at night. Following his dad's advice, he consulted several sangomas, who all told him that he had the calling.
