20 June 2016 - 11:00 By TMG Entertianment

Just weeks after reports surfaced that Boity had heeded a call from her ancestors, the actress has spoken out about her calling, describing it as "a beautiful gift that I will never take for granted."

The actress and TV personality took to Instagram over the weekend to post a picture of herself grinning happily in traditional attire.

  • Boity Thulo mum on 'sangoma training' reportsTV personality Boity Thulo has remained mum after reports claim that she is a trained sangoma. 

Friends and fans flooded the comments section of the post to congratulate Boity.

Her decision also drew congratulations from fellow actress Letoya Makhene, who is herself a traditional healer.

Posting a picture of Boity in her traditional clothing, Letoya wrote: "You beautiful thing! #Thokoza ngwana badimo! Gola Nkgono!"

  • Boity Thulo sangoma claims 'absurd' say insidersInsiders close to Boity Thulo have lambasted claims that she has received 'the calling' and is on the way to becoming a sangoma. 

Last week reports in Sunday World claimed that Boity had told friends that she had accepted the call and had completed her training to become a traditional healer.

"Yes I did go thwasa but I'm not going to practise as a sangoma. This is a very sensitive matter that I don't want to talk about in the media. It's a personal matter and way too deep to be reduced into a celebrity gossip in the newspaper. It's a secret. It's so much deeper," the paper quoted Boity as saying.
