A post shared by Dawn Thandeka King (@dawnthandeka_king) on


Ubungoma is an African practice whereby someone in the waking life uses sage to communicate with those that have passed on – ancestors, this is mainly to bring about healing to people that need clarity on personal aspects of their lives. This kind of spiritual awakening can pretty much befall anyone, including our celebrities.

I have lived. I have loved. I have conquered. I have been broken and I have risen. I look back on my life and I’m in awe of the many blessings that I have received. By age 9 I knew what it was to sacrifice play time because of work obligations – touring with my dad and sharing stages with giants! I was also doubling in 2 careers by that time as not only a singer, but a presenter on K-T.V. By age 10, I was doing international tours with my dad – had the honour of jamming with Stevie Wonder in Ghana and by then, working as a presenter on The Rainbow Starship – which became what you now know as YO-T.V. By 11 I was the anchor presenter at the Disney UNESCO Children’s Summit-representing SA. I sang at the Commonwealth Games here in SA too! I decided to take a break from everything by age 12 coz I just wanted to be a child. By 13 I was starting to feel restless again – being a normal child at school just wasn’t enough for me anymore. Started appearing in a few commercials. But when I wasn’t appearing in them, I was singing in them. At 14 my sisters and I were in a girl group called s’Kool Girlz. I was in high school by then, studying Drama at NSA. By 16 I was back at doubling in careers as not only the lead singer of s’Kool Girlz, but as a presenter on Channel O. We recorded our last album when I was just 16-after mom passed away. At 17 I was a contestant on Idols. By 18 I was head hunted as a presenter on the very same show! Crazy. I know. Let’s not forget that they used my singing voice for the lead actress on Mr Bones when I was only 17! At 19 I went into initiation school – stayed there for 8 months. Was a qualified Traditional Dr by age 20. Did a cameo on Rhythm City. Became a lead actress on Isidingo by age 27…and by 30, a lead actress on Generations The Legacy. I recorded The One with D.J Cleo at 31. By age 33, I was not only still acting on Generations until 6 months of pregnancy but I was also in studio in with my dad at the same time, recording, Qinisela. Thank you for the love and support you’ve shown me throughout my life. Thank you for the birthday wishes. Thank you for being on #TeamLetoya Love 💞 📸 @ubizo_shoots

A post shared by Dawn Thandeka King (@dawnthandeka_king) on


Many were shocked when Uzalo actress, Dawn Thandeka King, revealed that she too, practices as a traditional healer. Speaking to Daily Sun about her journey, she said:”That was the most confusing time of my life because of the background I came from, which is Christian, people rushed to me and started praying for me but that didn’t help”.


There is no way we could leave out, Lerato Mvelase. This talented actress, who also dabbles as a musician has always shown gratitude towards her gift as a traditional healer.

A post shared by Lvovo (@lvovosa) on


Lvovo Derrango definitely took us by surprise as we wondered how this kwaito superstar will be able to juggle his busy music career and sangoma duties. However, it seems Lvovo has formulated some kind of a plan as to how he will juggle both of these, equally demanding aspects of his life.
