Bozza is not just a musician. The rapper, who rose to fame as a member of hip hop group Skwatta Kamp, has become a prophet.
According to Sowetan, Bozza went through a rite of passage for a year at the All Nations Apostolic Church in Nigel, east of Johannesburg.
The paper reported that the rapper underwent a ritual called tironi, which is similar to ukuthwasa (a traditional healer rite of passage).
However, tironi is church-based and, according to Bozza, this is a combination of ancestral rituals and prayer.
He told Sowetan: “I did my rituals last year and the year before, which is why I was not visible to the public. I underwent tironi for a year so that I can prophesy. One can never say the process is over because one always gets dreams to get certain things. I graduated from level to a level where I can get back to work.”
According to the paper, Bozza has replaced Wright Ngubeni as the host of SABC1’s youth education show Big Up.
