Earlier this year, Phophi Mudau Ratlabala announced that she was now a graduated healer and she said she was happy to talk about her journey
As quoted by Daily Sun, the actress said;
“It has been both a challenging and beautiful journey. Learning to give of yourself, your time, your resources were minuscule in comparison to the lesson in humility. When you accept your calling to become a Healer, you let go of self completely and allow the Spirits to work through you and in you. “
Mlungisi Bafana Mathe, who plays the role of Emkay Biyela on Skeem Saam opened up on his religion and spiritual journey as a sangoma.
At one time, Emkay was a church youth leader and a preacher before eventually becoming a pastor. Along the way, Mlungisi got a calling from his ancestors which he embraced.
Oratile Maitisa joined Skeem Saam back in 2010, where she plays the role of Eunice Nkadimeng a the sweet and innocent young girl.

Veteran actress Shoki Mmola said she is delighted to be a practising sangoma despite her demanding job portraying Celia on Skeem Saam.
In 2019, she graduated as a registered traditional healer – meaning she can issue sick notes to those she consults. She denied that she is a celebrity Sangoma saying:
I am not a celebrity sangoma because I didn’t answer my calling out of it being a fashion trend
