Is Boity now a sangoma?

Citizen Reporter

While the rest of us were trying to figure out if she was wearing underwear or not, we missed the important detail of her 'sangoma beads'.

According to tabloid Sunday World, TV actress and presenter Boity Thulo is now a trained traditional healer.

The paper first became aware that this may have been the case when they noticed her wearing sangoma beads while walking the red carpet at the SA Music Awards last weekend.

We have to take our hat off to Sunday World for being the only ones who spotted this, as everyone else seemed to only notice that she wasn’t wearing underwear that night, although the Club 808 presenter has since claimed that the photographs that set tongues wagging were photoshopped by cyberbullies.

She reportedly also made chit-chat with her friends about her sangoma training last weekend.

She told Sunday World that her healing training was a “personal matter” and she didn’t want to discuss it in the media, but she reportedly confirmed it. If the tabloid’s report is true, it would at least explain why Boity was wearing an outfit on last month that apparently should only be worn by sangoma initiates or inyangas. Apparently this upset traditionalists.

We don’t know what to make of it. What do do you think?
