Zodwa Wabantu will continue the ancestral journey despite backlash

Zodwa Wabantu recently received backlash for sharing her ancestral journey on Instagram. Many called on her to stop posting about it online after she shared snaps of a ceremony online. The exotic dancer however says that she is not a private person and will continue sharing her journey with her fans.
Zodwa Wabantu recently shared that she has accepted her ancestral calling. With that, that came a number of social media posts that show the performer doing an assortment of rituals as part of the process.
After seeing her posts, many social media users came forward to ask Zodwa to stop sharing photos and posts about the sacred journey.
Zodwa, however, says that she is not a private person and will continue to let everyone in on the process. Speaking to TshisaLive, Zodwa and her mentor, spiritual leader Dr Samuel Mhlaba of Kwa-Mhlaba Traditional Healers shared that the process should not be kept a secret.

“I’m just preparing for wherever the journey is taking me. I also don’t know where I am going spiritually and with this journey, so you don’t limit yourself. I’m Zodwa Wabantu, they should know. They will know all the way,” said Zodwa.


Dr Samuel chipped in that the process should not be kept a secret and that black people should be proud of their African cultures:

“Our traditions and norms need to be respected, so let us show people what we do, because they (whites) brought the concept that everything we do is evil so that we will throw it away and run away from it.

“Black people should be proud that at last our African cultures and traditional style of healing are being published. We see doctors performing surgeries on TV, what’s wrong with performing our traditional surgeries and ceremonies in public.”
