When I came back from my initiation on the mountains - 1 month 6 days, while everyone was showering me with gifts and all, one old lady gave me a box of snuff, and an old man gave me a box of matches. I still get extremely offended when people get shocked that I smoke this too!
I have never drank because of friends, neither did I start smoking because of friends. I have always done what my body feels like doing.
I have always been isolated, that is why when I was growing up my 3 sisters would laugh at me because I would rather go sleep on the mountains with the initiates than having to make my bed.
They used to call me Tarzan - because the wilderness was my home. They call me uTyebelendle because I'm comfortable in the wilderness. How I choose to wander was my birth right... I have survived beasts in the forest from day one... Hiking and hunting - we never practice it as fitness routine, neither did we do it for sport! We hiked mountains as kids looking for our way back home, looking for food.
Why wouldn't I survive being who I really am, and do the things I do without a shock and or a status tag line of "wow? You smoke that shit???"... I do... At least it's not a cigar I saw on DSTV cause I don't have one.
My name is Bayekeni, ndizoniyeka😂😂😂
It wouldn't be a full Mangwanani experience without my African Queens who sing and dance so beautifully...I never tire of their singing and dance no matter how often I see them💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽👸🏽👸🏽👸🏽😍😍😍#mangwanani#isintu#xhosa#xhosaqueen #
