Weeks after reports emerged that Boitumelo Thulo had heeded a call from her ancestors to be a Sangoma (traditional healer) the actress has confirmed her calling, describing it as a beautiful gift that 'I will never take for granted'
The 26-year-old TV personality took to Instagram two days ago to post a photo of herself grinning happily in traditional attire. In the post she described her journey.
'They Called. I Answered. The Proudest, most Incredible day of my life. A Beautiful Gift that I will never take for granted. #ThokozaGogo #KgosigadiDabulamanzi #Blessed#OwnYourThrone," she wrote.
Family members, friends and fans flooded the comments section of the post to congratulate her.
Her decision also drew congratulations from fellow actress Letoya Makhene, who is herself a traditional healer.
Posting a picture of Boity in her traditional clothing, Letoya wrote: "You beautiful thing! #Thokoza ngwana badimo! Gola Nkgono!"
Last week reports in Sunday World claimed that Boity had told friends that she had accepted the call and had completed her training to become a traditional healer.
"Yes I did go thwasa but I'm not going to practise 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," the paper quoted Boity as saying.
And no, I, Linda, don't understand what they mean by traditional healer and what the job entails. Just reporting...:-)
