Boity’s New Assumed Title Triggers Debate Online
Multi-talented media personality Boity (real name Boithumelo Thulo) has dropped a spiritual bomb on her online fanbase after revealing her new ancestral name.
In a recent tweet, the Wuz Dat singer told her followers that they should now refer to her as “Gogo Nomakhwezi.”
She wrote, in a series of tweets,…
“You can officially refer to me as Quo Nomakhwezi. Thokozani.”
“It’s as though my soul just burst open in the most incredible way!”
But this did not go down well with some of her followers who demanded an explanation on why she was using a Xhosa name for Idlozi when she was Tswana, while some wondered why all celebrities who are ‘initiated,’ use Xhosa and Zulu names.
However, Boity revealed that she has Xhosa blood as her grandparents are Xhosa.
Both my maternal and paternal grandmothers are Xhosa.
She went on and explained that she has mixed blood and one name does not represent all her Dlozis.
Not y’all assuming I only have Batswana (Which are mainly Khoi) ancestors. How? I have a wild lineage. ONE NAME is not a representative of all my Dlozis.
Boity went to Thwasa back in 2016 and only revealed it to the public after she had gone through the initiation process, with a message on Instagram
She confirmed that she went to thwasa but she said she wasn’t going to practice as a sangoma and she didn’t like it to be reduced to cheap celeb gossip.
“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,” she said.
It seems Boitv’s ancestors continue to give her revelations.
