Ntando Duma and her daughter, Sbahle Mzizi, should just receive an honorary award for the best mother-and-daughter intellectual duo because they are certainly not letting us rest with the content they are producing.

Taking to Instagram, the duo served the latest edition of the adorability. The two are the ambassadors for the “Grow Great Campaign.” Ntando explained the purpose of the initiative by writing that:
Ntando Duma and Junior are super proud
“People often compliment Sbahle how smart she is, and ask how I did it. I was lucky that I started reading to Sbahle since I was pregnant. Babies who were read to as newborns have a larger vocabulary, as well as more advanced mathematical skills, than other kids their age. It is never too early to start reading for your baby. Start today.”

And the video then provides receipts for why it is important to do so. Sbahle did not only recognize the numbers, but could also name the objects she saw in the book. The video continues the conversation and marvels at how smart the little toddler is. One person that marveled not only on the smarts of the little but the mothering skills by Ntando was Bridgette Masinga. In appreciation of Ntando she wrote;

“Love, love this! And I love that you talk to her using proper language. I think using (actual) words versus “baby talk” helps in building that vocabulary as well. So precious.”

Sbahle’s confidence and her level of maturity is still something that has not been celebrated enough. The toddler currently has followers and fans that include Bonang Matheba. Bonang is such a fan of the little on that during the airing of her SABC 1 hosted two-part documentary, “A Very Bonang Year,” sent Sbahle a curated PR package meant just for her.

And the confidence with which she continues to carry over hairstyle. The youngster had wanted the haircut to emulate our reigning Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi. Even when Ntando was worried about the hairstyle, it was Sbahle that calmed her mother’s worries by quoting India Arie’s “I am not my hair.” The song also happens to be one of her mother’s all-time favorite songs.
