The Television personality took to social media earlier this week to state why celebrating her culture was so important to her  

In a rather lengthy Instagram post, Hulisani spoke about how those of her culture were often "ridiculed" for their complexion and speech patterns, and because they were often the minority .“Celebrating and showing off my culture is not something I take lightly. It’s close to my heart because I know that my language and culture is often perceived as that of a minority group and my people are sometimes ridiculed for their complexion or how our language sounds‚” she said.

She motivated others to celebrate their culture and urged them not to be embarrassed by it.

“Young man‚ young lady‚ no matter what your language or culture‚ if you’ve ever felt too scared or embarrassed by who you are and where you come from‚ too embarrassed to speak your language‚ too shy to wear your munwenda or xibelani‚ please don’t be‚” she added.
