“People from the Northern Cape are the best storytellers. Their way of telling a story and setting the plot is like painting a beautiful picture.
If you listen carefully, we speak slower than the rest of the country, especially when speaking Afrikaans. We also have a melodic feel to our tone and this just adds to the beauty. They look out for each other. They raise each other, no questions asked,” she continued.
