Single and 'searching' #IdolsSA Judge Unathi Nkayi grabs attention with her dress


Human history has it on good account that some people, when they get popular, tend to ignore their roots all in the name of modernity, and embracement of globalization, at the expense of personal identity.

But, Unathi Nkayi is not apologetic at all, neither is she ashamed of her true African identity, in fact the media personality is proud, and expresses her pride through wearing locally made textiles.

As DRUM puts it.
In the recent episode of Idols SA, the judge was dressed in a stunning local apparel and took to her Instagram page to explain the choice of her attire, and what motivated that day's pick from her rich wardrobe.

“I’m obsessed with the textile industry of South Africa and how it is evolving so beautifully. The future of ‘African Print’ on the continent is one that must be encouraged and supported. ‘Our’ Daki which is usually worn by ooMakoti is of German, Belgian and Dutch origin,” she wrote.

The reason why she believes in the need to support local designers is basically motivated by the need to reshape African narratives both now and in the future.

Unathi draws inspiration from designers like Rich factory, Palesa Mokubung, Laduma and Maxhosa among others.
