Former The Queen actor and Moja Love’s TV host, Aaron Moloisi has finally come out and addressed the rumours of him being a sangoma.
Rumours of him being a sangoma began when several fans spotted him on several occasions dressed in white beads around his neck which are mostly worn by izangoma or people born with spiritual gifts.
The media personality denies these claims of him being spiritually gifted because he’s simply “African and proud.” He admits that people address him as “mkhulu” because they’re simply respecting him.
He stated in an interview with Daily Sun: “Just because people call me mkhulu or say thokoza gogo or mkhulu doesn’t mean that I’m a sangoma. They say that out of respect.”
However Sazi Mhlongo who is the spokesperson for SATHA (South African Traditional Healers Association)says the white and red beads are associated with being a sangoma and a person just can’t wear them because the beads connect them with the ancestors.
The actor says he has no issues with sangomas, has great respect for them and if he was a sangoma, he’d come out and announce it.
