#WCW Uzalo’s MaNgcobo: Life has taught me to love and protect myself

Dawn Thandeka King

Actress Dawn Thandeka King uses her acting and music to heal others but plans to open practice to channel her gift as a traditional healer in the near future. She had not expected to receive the call from the ancestors, but when her body started shaking uncontrollably one day she knew she had to embrace the gift.

“When you get the calling, you do not have a choice. You have to attend to it. It is filled with energy and you have to be assisted by other healers to help you.Dawn Thandeka King

I went through a lot but I was helped and I realised that the gift can be channelled in several ways.

Dawn is one of many traditional healers who are juggling the entertainment industry and healing, including Letoya Makhene and Boity. She said that while the demands of the industry can be difficult, there is support.

Everyone in the entertainment industry understands that we have a calling and I have yet to meet someone who looks down on us. I think people understand that we are carrying messages through our art and they embrace that.
