Tumi Morake Ignores Suburb Rules To Honour Ancestral Ceremony


Having reached a new milestone in her career, award-winning comedienne Tumi Morake has revealed that she will damn the consequences and celebrate the traditional way at her home in the suburbs.

Tumi Morake made history on Saturday night when she walked away as the first female to be crowned Comic of the Year at the 6th annual Comics’ Choice Awards.

She beat popular male comedians Loyiso Gola; Mashabela Galane; Skhumba Hlophe and Carvin Goldstone.

Therefore, to celebrate this wonderful achievement, the excited comedienne has decided to host a thanksgiving ceremony at her home. Meanwhile, this involves slaughtering an animal which is usually frowned at in the suburbs of South Africa. However, she appears to be unperturbed about what her neighbors might say.

On Touch Central’s Best Of Both Worlds, Tumi revealed her plans for the celebration as follows: she will be heading to her grandparent’s house to present the award to the whole family; she will visit her late mother’s grave. Finally, she will host a thanksgiving ceremony at her house in the suburbs where she’ll be slaughtering an animal.

Apparently, Tumi is a very traditional person who takes pride in the traditions and culture of her family. She is the kind of person that gives thanks to her ancestors for any accomplishments throughout all aspects of her life. She confirmed this in an interview as she said:

“I’m very happy to do this. I’m proud of the traditions and culture that my family has taught me, where we celebrate each and every milestone – whether it be in your career or your personal life. We have always been doing this back home, however, it will be the first time doing it at my house.”

And about her neighbors frowning at the ceremony, she said: “They must just find courage and strength. Anyway, that’s why we have high walls.”

We celebrate with her and wish her more achievements in her career.
