My name is Nosisa Makubalo mostly known as Nhati.
I’m 38 years old, born and bred in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. But now based in Johannesburg. I am a choral singer, love African jazz and classic music.
I have never been thin since I was a child and yes people use to make fun of me laughing at me calling me names, but that never changed the way I was born. I have always been big, bold and a big body. I have tried so many things from injections to pills and unfortunately they never worked, and I was left with one thing loving myself the way I am.
I cannot not satisfy the world because of what they think of me.I decided not to please anyone just to love and have confidence in my own skin, because I don’t think there is anything that a skinny person can do that I can’t do…..(yes anything if you know what I’m talking about #laughing#)…..
I am a phenomenal, confident and bold woman that loves the way she looks and proud of her self. I will never allow anyone to discriminate me.
Working with Carrol was super amazing, I never thought it was going to be that easy, and let me thank you Carrol for giving us a platform where we can say we BIG, BOLD unique human beings and we need just the community to appreciate and respect us cause we are here to stay and we not going anywhere….
