Some people view performing and participating in African traditional ceremonies as old fashioned and backward…

However Kwaito star, Thokozani Ndlovu stage name ‘Lvovo Derrango’ rose above these misconceptions and reconnected with his cultural traditions by accepting the call to be a *Sangoma.

The Durban kwaito artist was accompanied by Ukhozi radio Dj Ngizwe Mchunu and his wife, who are also sangomas.
