Singer Busisiwe "Cici" Twala is learning to love her body again – one day at a time.
Cici laid assault charges following an alleged violent dispute with then boyfriend Arthur Mafokate. In an emotional court testimony in March last year, Cici detailed how Arthur drove a distance of 300 metres while dragging her along the street when she tried to break up with him.
“For the longest time I’ve struggled with forgiveness because I had to wake up to these every morning and they served as constant reminder. I remember going on holiday and trying on a bikini. I took one look at myself in the mirror and just balled my eyes. I was filled with so much anger and hatred,” she shared.
Now, the muso made peace with the scars and is looking at them with a new perspective.
“Today I look at my scars and say I’m grateful for life and the courage and strength that God gave me to face each day with love in my heart,” she wrote.
