A picture of a politician from South Africa and a musician appeared on social media and sparked discussion in the comments section.
Tito Mboweni, a former minister of finance, revealed on Twitter that he had met Papa Penny, a well-known Tsonga celebrity, at a gala dinner. You can see them in the post below.
But Mr. Tito Mboweni couldn’t help but notice the tie on Penny.
One of the pioneers of Tsonga Disco, whose true name is Eric Nkovane, Papa Penny has collaborated with many icons, including General Muzka, one of the top Tsonga Disco performers.
The songs on Papa Penny’s albums are all in Xitsonga and belong to the Tsonga disco genre. This is a dialect of Xihlanganu, one of the least-spoken languages in South Africa, spoken by the MaTsonga people. Papa Penny made this decision consciously because he wanted to “present his language to the world.”
” Tito Mboweni @ tito mboweni ” felt the need to share this sight with the people on social media.
