There's something familiar about Tumi Morake, writes Channel24's Music Editor Nikita Coetzee.

Being on the phone with her reminds me of being caught up in a lengthy conversation with a friend I have not heard from in a while. It also helps that she keeps referring to me as "friendship" right before we burst out laughing at something she has said. 

It's 15:45 in SA when I connect with the comedian via Zoom. She's in the US - Virginia, to be exact - and her day is just about beginning.
