Tinyiko Rikhotso is well-known for her use of English that we’re pretty sure comes with an accent of its own. It is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. According to her profile, she studied English at the University of Limpopo, but now feels it’s time to put her talent to the test by writing a book. The university says they don’t have any record of her.
According to Tinyiko’s manager July Maluleke, Tinyiko’s book will take us through her life journey from her young age in the dusty streets of impopo to a woman she has become today. “I think everyone will enjoy reading the book. Tinyiko is an extraordinary lady who managed to create a great relationship with her fans,” he said.
“The book will be available online and in selected bookshops around the country. The good thing is the release of the book will coincide with her role model’s birthday. She is very excited about the project and looking forward to holding the first copy in her hands. The name of her book is TinyiTinyi – Form A to B,” he added.
