For musician Nandi Madida she would have just landed in Johannesburg from Los Angeles. She plans to quickly connect to her hometown of Durban, where she will join her husband, Zakes Bantwini, their children and family.
“I always just try to make it back home for Christmas to be with my family no matter where I am in the world. I actually could have stayed in LA,” Madida says.
“I’m just so used to the tradition of having Christmas at home. My brother doesn’t even stay in the country anymore but he will be there too.
“It’s just feels good to do that, especially when we are all still around. It’s just so humbling to go to my base to re-energise and celebrate one another. Everyone is still alive and healthy.”
