SA Twitter Drags American Based Singer Goapele For How She Pronounce Her Name. They say, when you get to Rome, do as the Roman do. Goapele Mohlalana, who is in America is following the culture of the US, and fitting well while at that.
The soul and R&B singer-songwriter, recently, shared a video of herself, where she pledged her support for Measure QQ. Goapele and her daughter encourage the Oakland City Council authority to lower the voting age. Ignoring her message, many couldn’t help but notice her American twang, more so the part where Goapele pronounced her name.
Her name means to move forward in Setswana, a Southern African language. But if you didn’t know any better, you were probably going to miss that, her name is in a local language. Twitter went all savage at her, saying she the least she could do is learn to pronounce her own name.
