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.
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;
Bon’ abazal’ uZulu.
