Famous SA music group Mafikizolo’s Theo Kgosinkwe and his wife Vorne Kgosinkwe welcomed their first child Oratilwe Alexis-sky in January.
The couples have, up until now, refrained from showing their baby’s face on social media.
Oratilwe Alexis-Sky has her mom’s nose and curly hair. But “she has her dad’s head because mine’s a bit bigger’ Vourne´ said.
Theo said, “I wanted her to look like her mom because she’s just beautiful,”.
When they found out Vourne´ was expecting, the couple couldn’t agree on a name. At first Theo wanted to name her Zendaya, after the American actress.
He chose Oratilwe (which means she is loved) as a nod to his Setswana roots but Vourne calls her Sky.
“I always said my child’s name would be Sky because at school there was this little girl in our class who was just perfect, and her name was Skyler. I added Alexis but I call her Sky,” she says.
“Everyone can call her Sky, but Daddy will call her Oratilwe,” Theo says.
“I want my daughter to know where she comes from and who she is. She’ll always have that background of a Tswana even if she has a sharp nose and curly hair.”
