The comedian, media personality and entrepreneur has joined the growing list of South African celebrities who have accepted their ancestral gift of traditional healing. He recently shared pictures and videos of his big day surrounded by family and loved ones.
In June this year, Oratile announced that she is now a Sangoma. The talented Skeem Saam actress took to Instagram to share videos and pictures of what looks like her graduation day. She gracefully donned her full sangoma regalia and thanked those who have been with her through her traditional healing journey.
Earlier this year, Masechaba shared a picture of herself dressed in Sangoma gear doing a ritual. The media personality however, was dragged and called out for exposing sacred cultural practices.
Luyanda is also among the growing number of celeb Sangomas. The TV host shared that he too has begun his spiritual journey although he has kept it under wraps because he wants to complete the process away from the public eye.
