Cape Town - Local TV personality Minnie Dlamini Jones recently shared a gorgeous snap of herself accessorised in Indian jewelry to pay homage to her ancestral lineage.
In the post, which was themed around embracing her Afro-Asian heritage, Minnie revealed her maternal great-grandfather was an Indian immigrant.
“This shoot meant the world to me! Paying homage to my AfroAsian ancestry. One thing you don’t know about me, is that my maternal great grandfather was an Indian immigrant,” she wrote.
