Boity Thulo took some time to connect with her ancestors during her baecation
Boitumelo ‘Boity’ Thulo is enjoying a romantic getaway in “paradise” with her rumoured boyfriend Stanley Obiamalu but that did not stop her from her sangoma duties
The 28-year-old took to Instagram a few days ago to share pictures of herself dressed in traditional ancestral attire while at the beach.
“C O N N E C T E D #Paradise #NgwanaBadimo #MakhosiAmakhulu #GogoBoitumelo #ThokozaGogo,” she captioned the snaps.
Boity first revealed she was training to become a sangoma in 2016
“They Called. I Answered. The Proudest, most incredible day of my life. A Beautiful Gift that I will never take for granted,” she wrote on Instagram.
The TV presenter reportedly completed her traditional healer training that same year.
Earlier this year, Boity revealed that her journey to becoming a sangoma was “slightly scary”.
“It’s slightly scary because you have a lot of questions and you also ask yourself, ‘Am I supposed to really be here? Am I doing the right thing?’ That’s why it’s very important to surround yourself with people who are going to guide you wholeheartedly, truthfully and authentically. It wasn’t hard but it was daunting because it was a long journey,” she said on Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast show.
She also explained how she manages to main her career as a TV personality and as Gogo Boitumelo
“They’re two different people and I can do it both. If I was not born to do it both (being famous and being a sangoma). I am sure that my ancestors would remove one to ensure that I concentrate on the other.
“I think I’ve found a nice balance and I’m treading carefully on this journey when it comes to my calling. I don’t take chances if they say I can’t do something or I mustn’t do something, I don’t ask, and I will not try fight for Boity just for Gogo Boitumelo to get sidelined.”
It’s great to see that Boity is committed to her calling no matter she goes.
She has not revealed any details about the location of her “baecation” except for a few captions about island hopping in paradise.
Her new man, who likely took the pictures of her on the beach, clearly loves and supports both Boity and Gogo Boitumelo.
