Subiey: The master of ululation


SHOSHONG: Thirty-two-year-old Gaorakwe ‘Subiey’ Kebobeile of Shoshong is so passionate about ululation that she wants to eke out a living from it.

If wishes were horses, she would use her God-given talent to entertain the first citizen wherever he goes and be rewarded for it.   Subiey, as she is affectionately called, says she began ululating as a young girl, while she was a member of the school traditional dance troupe both at primary and secondary schools.  Over time she managed to master the art.

Hers is no ordinary ululating as she says her audience is always left asking for more whenever she ululates.  She prides herself in turning dull moments into something exciting.  She recalls a day when the village hosted a culture day event. Many people left the event feeling bored, but were cheered up when she started ululatating.
