    Ngcobo, AB (reader, male)

  • Description

    Mr. AB Ngcobo reads Zulu words from a page. This could be the text of a song. This section follows after Rycroft' s introduction to Dingane's praises. However this text shows not similarity to other versions of Dingane's praises. Furthermore the repetitive nature of this verse links it to the lyrics of a song rather than the descriptive praise names of a king.
