The heartwarming pictures, shared on social media by @Skekezwa, showcased Mapimpi and Am attending a Xhosa ceremony held in the village of Nxahuni. Hailing from the Eastern Cape themselves, Mapimpi grew up in Tsholomnqa, while Am comes from Zwelitsha in East London.

Mapimpi’s vibrant blue Xhosa beads adorned his head and neck, adding a touch of cultural flair to his ensemble. In another photo, he confidently sported a traditional men’s wrap skirt, embracing the customs of his heritage.

Speculation arose in the comments section, with one user suggesting that the ceremony could be an Umgidi, a celebration marking the triumphant return of initiates. Regardless of the specific occasion, the Springboks’ participation in the Xhosa custom was met with admiration and praise.

Many social media users commended Mapimpi and Am for their dedication to honouring their Xhosa traditions, even in the midst of their fame. One tweep expressed, “True Xhosa Dynas. Always respect their traditions, even if they are famous.”
