More and more South African celebrities are heeding to their ancestoral callings and becoming sangoma's and Masechaba Ndlovu is one of the latest. The young media personality recently headed to her Instagram to share the news with her followers.
Taking to the app Ndlovu explained that she was undergoing a fresh start with a renewed mindset. Her post included pictures of her sitting on the ground in her traditional gogo attire while performing a ritual.
"A fresh start isn't a new place, it's a new mindset. #NtuLulama @ntululama #HealthIsWealth," she captioned the post.
Very soon locals were in the comment section sharing their thoughts. A lot of them also observed that many SA media personalities are becoming sangoma's and at the same time voiced their suspicions.
Read a few of their comments below:
"All these celebrities are tokoza gogo bonke."
"Every famous and young ppl especially young women are all isangoma. Something is just not adding up."
"We had lost our culture so much and we are so ashamed of it, this is a true definition of who we are. I have never seen a culture who question their roots more than us. It’s very painful to be so old and only then you realise that actually, you don’t know who you’ve been. Zonke izinhlanga zinosiko yithi Nje . This is Gold. I wish and pray we appreciate it without questioning because its it."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Aaron Moloisi, the star from The Queen and Moja Love, has set the record straight on rumours that he is a sangoma. The rumours started when fans spotted him wearing white beads around his neck which are usually reserved for izangoma or people who possess spiritual gifts.
He denied that he is spiritually gifted and said that he is simply proud of being African and some people call him mkhulu as a sign of respect. According to the Daily Sun he revealed this during an interview that he was not a sangoma and if he was he would let his fans and Mzansi know.
He simply wishes to embrace African culture by wearing the beads. Sazi Mahlongo, the spokesman for the South African Traditional Healers association said there are beads that can be worn as jewellery but the are some that are reserved for sangomas, particularly the red and white beads.
