The relationship between artists and their fans has over the years been well documented, in some cases the allegiance is so heartfelt and touching but so overwhelming is when a fan go beyond just cheering during concerts, to writing a touching letter, it becomes more intimately personal.
Apparently, while Nomzamo Mbatha’s journey to prominence has touched many hearts owing to her so many hats, from presenting and acting, to being an humanitarian. Not writing off her being a voice for so many voiceless Africans, one fan of hers decided to pay her with ‘a like for like' when she gave Nomzamo a hand-written letter that made her cry.
The young woman, Tshireletso Matsogo after meeting her biggest inspiration, at Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, the pupil took to Twitter to share her excitement.
Tshireletso posted a video of herself giving Nomzamo a letter, and them exchanging warm embraces and laughs.
The 15-year-old captioned the post:
“@NomzamoMbatha God knows how long I had waited for this moment, the moment when I could finally tell you, face to face, how much you inspire me. Your beauty blew me away, but more importantly your heart. Thank you for your kind words, Thank u for YOU Sis Nomzamo, My Role Model.”
Nomzamo was so touched by the heartfelt letter, to the extent that she ‘broke down in sobs' shedding tears of joy.
Nomzamo would not waste any time to respond to her young fan, she did not only thank her for the beautiful letter that made her cry, but also commended her for being an amazing young woman with great depth and understanding. As if prophesying Nomzamo said the young's depth to detail will take her far.
“Tshireletso, I read your letter, halfway through I couldn’t hold back the fountain of tears and my heart breaking and coming back all together again. Thank you. For your bravery. For your love. I know I will see you again soon. Your depth, girl… your depth will take you far,” she wrote.
