The 24th of September is Heritage Day, a day when South Africans can celebrate the diversity that makes their country so special. The aim of Heritage Day is to remember and celebrate your culture, whether it's by dressing up in colorful traditional attire or hanging out around a braai.
It never ceases to amaze me how frequently and how many South African celebrities speak out to safeguard not only their own culture, but the diverse cultures that make up Mzansi.
Our celebrities are continuously representing, whether it's Sjava wearing traditional Zulu clothing to a function in New York City or Rachel Kolisi flaunting her proudly Mzansi mother talents in Fiji.
We look at ten proudly South African celebrities that celebrate their background and protect our country's magnificent variety every day of the year.
1. Sho Madjozi.
3. Zozibini Tunzi – Miss SA 2019.
4. Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
5. Pearl Thusi.
6. DJ Black Coffee.
Apartheid, racial tensions, political fragmentation, and xenophobia have all been part of South Africa's history, and some of these issues still exist today. As a result, Heritage Day is particularly significant for the South African people, as the country attempts to overcome the divides that once divided it. The day also sends a message about the value and beauty of variety.
South Africans celebrate their culture, as well as the country's diversity of beliefs and traditions, on this day. In honor of King Shaka Zulu, the festival was previously called as Shaka Day.
History Day being a special event, it was the ideal moment for South Africans to dress up and let their traditional attire take center stage as they embraced their cultural heritage while adding a dash of personal style.
