The legendary South African artist from Boom Shaka, Thembi Seete, is feeling grateful for being a mother as she recently gave birth to her first child at the age of 41. Thembi has been very private about her pregnancy and has opened up to the world about her motherhood journey for the very first time during mother’s day yesterday.
Seete wrote a powerful and heartfelt message on instagram,
My First Mother’s Day I Approach this day with so much gratitude. I’m still in awe that God trusted me to carry & take care of his masterpiece. Honestly, there couldn’t have been a better time for God to grant me the most precious gift of my life. #Dakalo you were worth the wait.
God truly was and he continues to be in control. When anything comes at the right time,God ensures we are ready and PRESENT. I had to be present enough to live in every moment with you. From carrying you for 9 months to giving birth and watching you grow into your own person & learning who God has created you to be on a daily basis.
I’ve learned that, there are delicate blessings planted in every moment and as a mother you cannot afford to miss such precious moments. This is truly the BEST TIME OF MY LIFE.
Mampho Returns to Mzansi with insights into Japan
Mampho Brescia comes back to South Africa with insight into Japan.
In an effort to strengthen ties and grow mutual understanding between the two countries, the Japanese government invited South African actress, Mampho Brescia to be a representative on a week-long visit to the land of the rising sun.
During her visit, Brescia met with some of the country’s political and social development leaders where the agenda of speeding up social justice especially for women was discussed, along with Japan’s foreign policy on Africa’s engagement.
She also experienced a variety of Japanese culture, arguably one of the most fascinating cultures in the world.
Both nations, South Africa and Japan have a futuristic outlook, where they have mutual goals of creating a free and fair society where all their people have rights, and social justice. Both governments wish to advance the well-being of their citizens, and that is something that is laudable
She said that she was deeply honoured that the Japanese government had chosen her to act as a global citizen in bridging the cultural and political gap between South Africa and Japan.
Brescia, who studied cultural exchange and the politics of Japan as an exchange student in the past in Japan, said the recent visit back to Japan was both spiritually and culturally fulfilling.
In short, I took away so many lessons from Japan this time. I’d jump at the opportunity of going back there again
