Boity (Gogo Nomakhwezi) speaks on loving her ancestral calling


Boity said since 2016 she had been training to become a standard healer, answering her ancestral calling which it had been a gorgeous gift.

The ancestral journey may be a personal one and rapper and businesswoman Boity Thulo has shared her journey from the start .

She has said that since 2016 that she had been training to become a standard healer, answering her ancestral calling which it had been a gorgeous gift.

Speaking to Glamour magazine in April, the truth star said her spiritual journey wasn’t for publicity to spice up her career. She said at the time she had no intentions of practising as a sangoma but she was doing thwasa (initiation to becoming a sangoma).

Thulo said her journey was a private one and wouldn’t enter the small print , but thanked her fans for his or her support and words of inspiration.

She now has an ancestral name, announcing on Twitter: “You can officially ask me as Gogo Nomakhwezi. Thokozani. It’s as if my soul just burst open within the most incredible way!”

Some people wondered why she had chosen a Zulu/Xhosa name as her family are Setswana.


A spiritually inclined South African who spoke on condition of anonymity explained the ancestral name is personal, saying that person is that the just one who knows why the name was chosen.

“Usually when people that have accepted their ancestral calling, the name comes from the ancestor who gifted them the facility . Possibly if it’s from their grandmother or female figure within the family they might call themselves Gogo, if a male figure gave them the facility , they might ask themselves as Mkhulu.”

Boity clarified the confusion about why she used a Xhosa name: ” Both my maternal and paternal grandmothers are Xhosa. Not y’all assuming I only have Batswana (Which are mainly Khoi) ancestors. How? I even have wild lineage. ONE NAME isn’t a representative of all my Dlozis.”
