Award-winning comedian Tumi Morake releases her first book

In her first offering, the award-winning comedian gets frank about her experiences in the industry and also shares about how her public persona is modelled on her mother.

Media personality Tumi Morake has revealed the cover of her upcoming book which will be released in October this year. The book titled ‘And Then Mama Said…’ will touch on various aspects of the award-winning comedian’s life, as well as provide a glimpse into the entertainment industry and its scandals.

“And Then Mama Said… is the voice of Tumi in private, as well as a behind-the-scenes perspective of a pioneering South African star who has been both deeply loved and viciously hated by her audience,” Morake explained.

The comedian says she chose to model her public persona on her mother, a bold woman who gave her the courage to comment on racial injustices as well as stand her ground in the predominantly male-dominated comedy industry.

In the book, Morake opens up about the racial rows at Jacaranda FM, the car accident that some social media users said she and her family deserved, as well as body shaming on set during her run as the host of Our Perfect Wedding.

The book will retail at R220.00.
