- Khanyi Mbau recently took to social media to share another stunning selfie
- The Queen of Bling captioned the post with a cryptic message that seemed to suggest that she had accepted the calling
- Mzansi social media users were left with more questions than answers as they asked her what was going on
Khanyi Mbau recently took to social media to share a picture of herself looking gorgeous as usual. However, it was the caption that left a lot of social media users talking.
Mbau shared the picture on Instagram and captioned it:
"They called upon me"
With the growing trend of Mzansi celebrities receiving and accepting the calling, many automatically assumed that Khanyi was revealing a journey to ubungoma.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that many famous Mzansi children of the soil have accepted their ancestral gift of ubungoma (traditional healing) in the last 10 years. Actress Letoya Makhene and rapper Boity are just two of South Africa’s most recognisable sangomas in the entertainment industry.
They are not shy to flaunt it either. Other South African celebs like Kelly Khumalo, Mshoza and Lerato Sengadi have also followed their spiritual journey. While following your heart to become a traditional healer is a great honour, not just for you personally but also your families and people around, being a celebrity who is also a sangoma has also found a few frowns from people in society.
Scoop Makhathini made headlines earlier this year when he accused some celebrities of faking their ancestral calling because they thought it was a “fashionable statement” in the entertainment industry.
“All of a sudden, every Tom, Dick and Thandi is having a calling… I’m just gonna relax and watch the liars play themselves out. The ancestral lashing will be unavoidable. JHB folk will bite anything, even s**t that can’t be bitten or faked. Yonke into bafuna ukuyendza’i-fashion," tweeted the TV presenter.
But there are many legitimate South African celebrities who have trained for months to become a sangoma.
