My heritage and my past make me an animal

Give me your attention for a short while.


Feast your eyes on exhibit Themba Jay, if you will.

If I may just brag a little.


Anyway . . .

Lest I digress.

I feel proud.

Of being myself.

A global citizen (it feels good when you believe the world is small and needs to be darted around furiously; make friends and lovers in far-away cities — continents).

Well, that’s one way of looking at it.

At self.

A genius.

And by the way, this ain’t all my ability.

I am fortunate to be born to a powerful clan.

This, these, all these gifts bestowed upon me, make me a force to be reckoned with.

Ngizalwa ko MAHLOBO;


o’Shomela ka Mgijima;

o’Mpangazitha ka Malandela;




Izidlukula zamakhosi.


Bon’ abazal’ uZulu.

Zindlondl’ e’nkulu!
