Busisiwe Mahlangu on BBC!

Busisiwe Mahlangu says:

It’s so crazy that last night I was “performing” in London! On BBC even!!

My reading was prerecorded. I was listening to myself in disbelief that my voice is playing from a studio somewhere in the UK. Like, I am in Mamelodi but also in a way I was in London 😭

Thank you so much to Salma for inviting me to her show. This brings back memories of Lagos when we met at Lipfest last year ❤
