When you talk about Makhadzi’s supporters, you should know that these are the individuals who don’t want to hear anything that has to do with Makhadzi.
They put everything they have into defending her honor. You are going to come to deeply regret it if you publish anything negative about her. Makhadzi fans will troll and grill you. When Master KG and his ex-girlfriend split up a year ago, fans showed the same lack of interest in finding out what went wrong or who was at fault as they did when they treated Master KG. They simply made the assumption that Master KG had played some sort of sexual game with their queen, and as a result, he was trolled and grilled.
The weekend before last was an important one for Venda as well as for all of Makhadzi’s fans from all over the world. In Venda, Makhadzi was acting as the host of a one-woman show at the Makhachkala stadium. Since the beginning of the previous month, people have been talking about how much they are looking forward to watching this show so that they can dance with their queen.
Additionally, performances were given by a number of different artists. Unfortunately, Master KG did not make it to the show even though Makhadzi had announced that he would be there as a special guest prior to the performance.
On social media, Makhadzi expressed her regret to her devoted fanbase for having to deliver disappointing news. Even Master KG has taken to Facebook to express his regret that he could not make it. He explained that he was out of the country and that the flight couldn’t make it on time.
After making this post, it was the same as if he had gone into a lion’s den without any protection. People cussed at him and gave him negative feedback. Some people even went on to say that they had noticed that he did not actually live in Makhadzi KG, and that he only dated her in order to gain popularity. The questioning of Master KG continued.
Nearly all of the comments on the box were critical of him, and for some of them he provided a response.
Makhadzi’s fans are savage. You’re wrong, Makhadzi. They bring everything they have with them to you. Look at some of their responses down below.
Traditions and customs of the Lobola people: “I cannot be bought.”
As someone who was raised in a privileged, Christianized environment in the suburbs, I was subjected to a barrage of insults that called my blackness into question. I was called every name under the sun.
The process of asserting myself as a black person, on the other hand, allowed me to engage in in-depth reflection on my position in a world that occasionally called into question my identity because I did not fit the mold.
I was given the opportunity to look at the customs of lobola through an entirely new and different lens thanks to the film Lobola: A Bride’s True Price, which was directed by Sihle Hlope and produced by Sihle Hlope. She brings a new perspective to the discussion and takes us on her own journey through marriage, an adventure that sees her bring up issues and questions about lobola. These are the questions that assisted in shedding light on the tradition for me.
The giving of cattle and money by a man to his intended betrothed in exchange for her hand in marriage is known as lobola. This tradition is followed, to a greater or lesser extent, in many countries around the world. It is said that this is done in the majority of cases as a way to show gratitude to the woman’s family for all of the hard work they put into raising her.
Even though I was brought up in a Christian home, I remember my mother talking about how excited she was about the possibility of my marriage and the man who would one day pay lobola for me. I can still vividly recall her words.
On numerous occasions, she praised my academic accomplishments and accomplishments overall. “Wow, I am going to make a lot of money with you,” she would say, and I too would blush at the idea that I was increasing my monetary worth by engaging in activities that made me a better “woman.” But she would say, “Wow, I am going to make a lot of money with you.”
During the process of coming out to my family and friends, I was overcome with a level of confusion that I had never experienced before. When I began to find my political voice as a queer person, as a feminist, and as an activist working against patriarchy, I realized that I was no longer interested in getting married.
Or, if someone were to ask for my hand in marriage, I did not want that to be sealed with a lobola payment because I did not want that to happen. I had the impression that just the possibility of being bought someday would turn me into a slave.
The splendor of culture and the ways in which it contributes to a robust sense of community are revealed to us through time-honored traditions. When you live within the heterosexual binary that is prevalent in society, the practice of lobola is intended to demonstrate to the bride’s family that a man is capable of providing for his future family as well as his wife’s financial requirements. This can be a positive thing. As a loud proclamation of one’s love for their partner, lobola can also be quite endearing in how it brings families together, which is another way in which it can be quite beneficial.
I’ve come to understand why people are attached to this tradition, but the concept that women are being bought while everyone watches is completely foreign to me. I’ve come to understand why people are attached to this tradition.
It is revolting to consider that human beings were put up for auction and sold to whoever was willing to pay the most money when we think back on the transatlantic slave trade and how black men, women, and children were sold at auction in the United States. If the family of the bride believes that she is worth more, they are free to decline to participate in lobola negotiations. When the bride price is settled upon, much like when you buy a bar of chocolate from a store, the woman is legally considered to be the property of her husband.
In South Africa, where different communities follow various rituals and practices, growing as a society also means acknowledging the ways in which we need to change, the ways in which we need to acknowledge the oppression of women and do better for the sake of the generations that will come after us.
However, the takeaway from this is that women cannot be purchased.
