Zodwa Wabantu might have adopted Durban as her second home,  but from time-to-time, the controversial media personality is not afraid to remind us that she is still that girl from Soweto.

Her latest posts did just that. First, the good sis gave us township-chic. In an image reminiscent of Brenda Fassie and the much talked about odes to the people that she loved; ordinary South Africans. Zodwa is sitting on the curb with quarts of alcoholic beverages that she is sharing with the locals from her street.  What was missing from the image was the beverage that Zodwa garnered her popularity with, but maybe that drink does not align with her brand anymore.
In the subsequent images, Zodwa introduced us to some of her family members. The posts showcased that like most great women in the media space that she is surrounded by matriarchs.  The first image was the introduction of an elder which all she shared about her was that it is her “family.”

She then went on to introduce us to her two sisters. She did not share much about them, but with suggestions that her reality show, “Zodwa Wabantu; Uncensored” is set to be making a comeback maybe all will be revealed. The first season of the reality show skimmed off from providing insight into Zodwa the sister, cousin and mother. So hopefully with the upcoming season, more will be revealed.

Moreover, it seemed that Zodwa and her family were not just chilling together, but were hosting a traditional ceremony. The nature of the traditional ceremony was not revealed. But what was revealed was that besides having a tasted for the brown or clear bottle, is that Zodwa can also make traditional bear. In one post, we see her getting her hands dirty as she mixed the umqoboti herself.
She then followed these posts with one that tugged at the heart strings. The traditional ceremony resulted in Zodwa and her family going to the final resting place of her late grandmother. The image showcases that the sisters delivered a wreath, and had some time to bond and speak to their grandmother.

The showcasing of the intimate moment when celebrities go and visit the resting places of their loved ones has become a motif that has been used continuously of late. From Pearl Thusi sharing an image of herself at her mother’s resting place. To Lasizwe and Khanyi Mbau sharing the visit to Lasizwe’s mother’s resting place.  It is slowly becoming a thing to do.
