They say you should always remember where you came from and a South girl named Tsholofelo Maseko wants the whole world to know how beautiful her culture really is.
In a very daring shoot lensed by Ndumiso Sibanda, Maseko goes out on the streets to showcase her Ndebele roots in a semi-nude shoot.
On social media, Tsholofelo says ”I won’t lie I had never been more terrified in my life. I have lived in a world where people(mostly men) will either walk straight into you or grab you. But not on this day. I felt like a human and not a piece of meat. I wanna look and feel like this everyday, but does the world I live in have a place for this kind of beautiful or this kind of confidence?” ”
Photographed in a taxi, she reveals…
”Believe it or not the taxi drivers made me feel the most comfortable. They all stood up and greeted me in Ndebele.”
