There are those people who don't know where they are coming from, they have abandoned their identities due to fame and high level of standards. Have you noticed that there are those South African people who never speaks their home languages/ mother tongues? That's the first sign of being not proud for who you are.
In this article we will be checking out those South African celebrities who are allegedly not proud of their languages/ tribe origins. Check out below:
1. Riky Rick
Have you ever heard the rap artist; Riky Rick speaking or singing an African language line? Never! There are rumours that this rap star was born in Limpopo Venda, well, he was actually not born in Venda, he even made it clear to his fans on social media:
"Being born and mostly raised in Durban and my father's side being Venda in Mankweng is a mix I'll always be proud of but at times I've felt conflicted about who I am culturally and historically," he told fans on social media.
This simply means that he is half Venda and half Zulu, but what's surprising it is that he never speaks even Zulu.
2. Babes Wodumo
Babes Wodumo's family is originally from Swaziland, yet she never speaks the Swati language. Apparently Babes Wodumo's family moved in to South Africa. It wasn't revealed whether the family moved into South Africa when Babes was already born or not.
Her traditional wedding outfit was a Swati traditional attire. The reason I say she is not proud it is that she never even tries to speak Swati, she always speaks Zulu.
3. DJ Maphorisa
Did you know that DJ Maphorisa is a half cast with a Nigerian father and a South African mother. He speaks South Africa's; Sepedi language.
Have you ever heard him speaking one of the Nigerian languages? Does he even know how to speak those languages? Well, I highly doubt. The interesting thing about this Pretoria born star it is that he is able to speak more than three of the South African official languages.
