“This was love: a string of coincidences that gathered significance and became miracles.” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A ray of sunshine. Affectionate. Charismatic. Gregarious. Are a few words to describe the Azania Realness channel founder Thando Hlophe.
Recently I had the pleasure to interview Thando to discuss her YouTube vlog Azania Realness
Uyolo : Can you please describe yourself in 3 words?
Thando : Loving, Black and a South African female
Uyolo : Please tell me more about Azania Realness ? What would you like for people to get from this channel?
Thando : "Azania Realness" is a space for me to have fun while trying to debunk any preconceived notions of what a person like me ( a black female Christian who so happens to be homosexual) should behave and be, through sharing some dry jokes, fun tags, social current affairs and the going on of my life. Basically just being me.
I really just want to open people's hearts and create room for social change. When people unwittingly realize that we can absolutely relate to anybody out there regardless of religion, background, gender, sexual orientation or skin color because we all face trials and tribulations. They might not be the same or have the same gravity but you can always learn and draw from someone else's experience and tweak to suit your needs.
Uyolo : Let's play my own version of smash, kill or marry.
Please choose between A, B or C?
Thando : A
Uyolo : What is your favorite song at the moment?
Thando : Pentatonix - O come oh ye faithful
Uyolo: Lastly, please choose between A, B or C?
Thando : C
Uyolo : *drum roll please
Well, you my dear have chosen to smash Kerry Washington whilst listening to O come oh ye faithful by the Pentatonix #hahaahaha
Uyolo : Well, Thando thank you for your time. Lastly before we wrap this up is there anything you would like for us to know?
Thando : God is good all the time.
