We all have something to showcase

We are different colours but we are one nation. We all have something to showcase. On Sunday, 24 September, South Africa will celebrate Heritage Day.
Gemini Solutions hosted a free cultural and diversity photo shoot to celebrate our diversity in Mossel Bay. Some of the beautiful traditional outfits we have in South Africa from the Sotho, Swati, Xhosa, Indian, Voortrekker, Xhosa, and Venda cultures were showcased.
It was a beautiful day. Gemini did a video with me representing Vuyolwethu Mfumbe Entertainment, interviewing people from different cultures. We have much to celebrate. We used to be divided, but now we are united in our beautiful diverse country. It's time to celebrate our 11 official languages, our national heritage sites, South African delicious dishes, music, dance, art. Be proud of who you are. If you don’t know where you come from you will never know where you are going.
A big thank you to our lovely models of the day who represented their cultures. Reggie Gebhuza represented the Sotho culture, Mrs Vuyisile Ngwenya represented the Swati tribe, Mrs Zingi Ntshwanti represented amaXhosa, Nadine Chetty represented the Indian culture, Crissie van Biljon represented the Boer / Voortrekker culture, Khodani Rambau Chauke represented the Venda tribe.

Dankie, Enkosi, thank you to our heritage models of the day for joining us in the studio. Thank you, Gemini Solutions' Frieda van der Walt who is working with local models and artists and doing community upliftment work with me.
