Nandi Madida Dedicates Her New Music Project To Sara Baartman and Here is Why. If you know your history, you will remember Sara Baartman as a South African woman whose large buttocks and unusual coloring made her the object of fascination by the colonial Europeans.
Englishmen and women paid to see Sara’s half naked body displayed in a cage that was about a metre and half high. She became an attraction for people from various parts of Europe. Even though it happened many years ago, today still, many women are body shammed in different ways and forms.
One celeb who recently opened up about her fair share of being body shammed is Nandi Madida. Having noted that though, Nandi has never let that experience stop her from celebrating her body. Through her new single Organic, the media personality and award winning artist, aims at appreciating African women. Her body of work is dedicated to Baartman.
“The reason I wrote #Organic is because African women have been Appropriated but never appreciated. Everything we have is organic and we are truly magic ✨. This single is dedicated to Sara Baartman.“
