The actress previously tweeted that when she’s in a public space with her daughter, people often speak to her in English instead of Isizulu.
"Please stop asking me why I don’t speak English to my daughter. She’s not English. She’ll learn it at school. At home, we speak Xhosa and Zulu, and she will be multilingual like her mom," she wrote.
The first-time mom expressed that she will raise her daughter to have a more informed knowledge of who she is and where she comes from.
"Oh well... mina I will raise my daughter to have a more informed knowledge of who she is and where she comes from. Even if it means I go all the way back to the stories of 'The Great Bantu Migration' and 'The Moors' then that’s what I’ll do," she added.
