Top five South African women who stand out for keeping it original

Not that they don’t wear make-up, not that they don’t extend their hairs with weaves or extensions of any sorts. But they are the best women I have come across in terms of keeping their African looks original and to the point. I am sure, they, like me, believe that being an African has nothing to do with plastic surgery, your face lifting, an eye job, boobs and so many more. I respect these women for being original and keeping it real – for being role models for kids, for showing us that you can succeed without having to worry about your looks. They are all masters of their given fields of expertise and we must respect them. This is not about what they did wrong, I did not choose them because of that, but why they stand out for me in our modern day society. This is about the high self esteem within them.

Nomakula 'Kuli' Roberts is a South African television personality, she has been on telly for all I know, from hosting the once great Real Goboza (RGB) on SABC 1 and now she's hosting with Trevor Gumbi the hot hyper Headlines on Mzansi Magic. She's one woman who speaks her mind without fear of being reprimanded and that should be respected, this is a modern society. LOL! Though I still remember her tjo! A column about the colored people of SA - anyway she said she was sorry.

When I think of Nontsikelelo 'Ntsiki' Mazwai, one thing comes into my cleverness toi-toi, talent unseen, a woman of great caliber, a spice girl of our modern society, a great woman to be around with, a sister and a social valuable noise maker. Ntsiki is one of our spoken-word masters of today, she's a great artist, she hosts the Mama Said Sessions every last Sunday of the month at the great Joburg Promusica Theatre. She's no toddler to the SA music industry at all. I honor you Mazwai daughter... She's one daughter who keeps it locked and to the point.

Lebogang 'Lebo' Mashile - when I think of Lebo, I think of the day she lambasted women with weaves on national television of not being truly Africans. She's one of the greatest poets of their and our time, she's a television personality and has a great personality too. Mashile speaks her mind, she's a role model to many young SA women. She's not a subject of shame but greatness. Salute to you Lebo!

Angie Motshekga - when I think of her I am reminded that this year she dismally failed as the Minister of basic education to deliver textbooks to the perished Limpopo children's province, and she never took the blame for it, talking about wrong bravery. Angie has served in the public sector and as a member of parliament for all I know, but I don't know what she's well known for besides the textbooks massacre. 

Ah! Nkosazana! She's my princess - Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, she's the ex wife of the President of the republic, MR Jacob Zuma. She served well in the former Thabo Mbeki government, unlike others she's still in the government. Almost forgot she also served well in the Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela government, talking about a great woman who's there for her job and not other related things. Remember, she is the first woman to get elected as the  African Union Commission Chairwoman.

I thank all of these women for showing us that Society is no longer about Alpha males - society cannot be dominated by any gender but we must all enjoy the status of being Alpha in our own rights...
