Boity Thulo's ancestral name has left Mzansi confused. The rapper recently took to twitter to share her official ancestral name.
The media personality revealed that tweeps can now call her Gogo Nomakhwezi. Boity tweeted on Sunday, 1 November:
"You can officially refer to me as Gogo Nomakhwezi. Thokozani."
Many tweeps took to her comment section to question her why the name is Zulu. They wanted to know why she didn't get a Tswana name after completing her traditional training. Some tweeps shared hilarious reactions to the stunner's post. They asked for love portions while others asked her for traditional medicine to find work.
Boity had to defend herself and let the peeps know that both her maternal and paternal grandmothers are Xhosa, hence the name Gogo Nomakhwezi.
Boity, who has been training to be a sangoma since 2016, previously told Glamour magazine in an interview that her ancestral journey is private.
"Yes I did go thwasa but I’m not going to practice as a sangoma. This is a very sensitive matter that I don’t want to talk about in the media. It’s a personal matter and way too deep to be reduced into a celebrity gossip in the newspaper. It’s a secret. It’s so much deeper."
Check out some of the comments from tweeps who have reacted to Boity's post:
"So you didn't have a Tswana title? Like Gogo MmaKganye..."
"So which type of Gogo are you, the flying by night or the lightning one?"
"I thought you're Tswana mos."
"I want to hear a verse with 'I'm Gogo Nomakhwezi'."
"It's funny how people are so touched by her name."
Briefly.co.za recently reported that Boity launched her own perfume, Boity Pink Sapphire. The Bakae hitmaker described the new cologne as "a scent fit for a powerful, African Queen".
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Ntsiki Mazwai has taken to social media to target flamboyant media personality Somizi Mhlongo. Ntsiki took to Twitter on Tuesday, 3 November and told her fans that the reality TV star "won't make history".
The poet shared that the new Somizi has "no craft". Ntsiki, who is popular for criticising Mzansi stars on social media, shared that maybe the old Somgaga would have had a chance to make history in the country because he had a craft.
"Lol it's cute if you think people like Somizi will make history.... Maybe the old Somizi who had a craft. But the new Somizi is just gonna be rich in this lifetime but won't make history. Money and wealth doesn't make history unless you CREATED something."
Tweeps have flooded Ntsiki's comment section to share their reactions to her post. Many of them have disagreed with her. One tweep told the star that Somizi's ancestors are showing off hence he has so many jobs in the entertainment industry.
