The Romantic Lives of South African Celebrities Who Double As Doctors
The Romantic Lives of South African Celebrities Who Double As Doctors.
Celebrities are often looked to as the leaders of modern culture. They’re the people we aspire to become, who’ve achieved financial success and are well-known for their legacies, someone who inspire people to look like them and date those who are similar to them, at least in appearance. However, just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ve accomplished a lot in their lives. In fact, as apps like Instagram and Tik Tok become more popular, many modern-era celebrities are becoming famous simply for being famous: they haven’t actually contributed anything to society short of a few well-shot photos or humorous videos!
Are People in Uniform Perceived As Desirable Romantic Partners?
Of course, many celebrities simply enjoy the publicity and serve only themselves, but still, many use their fame & financial success to make positive changes in the world around them. Some may do this in the form of donations and fundraisers, but others may do it in more subtle ways, such as their non-celebrity life at work. While the idea of being a firefighter, policeman, or doctor may not fit the typical “glamorous” lifestyle that we’ve come to expect of these celebrities, many stars do actually make a genuine contribution. As evident by multiple online dating platforms dedicated to dating people in uniform, be it scrubs or a military outfit, a lot of people share an idea that a man or woman in a uniform is someone who deserves to be conquered! We respect individuals who have a sign of serving society under their fashionable outfits far more than those who choose to do nothing with their fame. Let’s take a closer look at one of those professions; to be specific, let’s look at doctors & healthcare workers.
Doctors Are on the Cutting Edge of Our Safety Nowadays.
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that doctors, nurses, and other health care workers are essential to the success and vitality of our society. Many of these frontline workers place their lives on the line every day to help their communities and those around them; despite this, their accomplishments and achievements often go unrecognized. Of course, many people are into uniform dating, finding themselves attracted to military members or policemen, but surely doctors and nurses aren’t dragging far behind, ensembling the utmost care a person can find in a dating partner.
While celebrity stars & their social lives are things that most people follow, there’s often a lot more going on behind the scenes (at least for the most respectable of celebrities!), some of them have a secondary occupation that is just as hot as an acting or singing career, like doctors. We’re not saying that you should go online and find a date with a doctor or a nurse simply for the sake of doing so or because they are hot (however, the latter reason is respectable enough!); we’re just saying that they deserve recognition for all the contributions that they make every day to the overall health of our society! You might think that these health care workers are all just average people, but that’s not exactly true. While many doctors are average, college-educated professionals, there are also many celebrities who double as doctors when they’re not busy being famous. Surprised? Here are three South African celebrities you might be surprised to learn that work in health care!
South African Stars Who Are Doctors.
If you find yourself well-acquainted with the beautiful women of the world, then you’ll no doubt be familiar with Tamaryn Green. If not, take a look here to see what we mean! She was crowned “Miss South Africa 2018” and placed as the first runner-up in the Miss Universe 2018 competition. Despite being most well-known for her pageantry work, Tamaryn Green also goes by “Dr. Green” outside of competitions. Green earned her medical degrees in 2019 from the University of Cape Town. She currently holds both a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery degree (MBChB). Her work in healthcare has actually been impacted by her personal medical history; in 2015, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis, although she went into remission in 2015. Despite this, she felt it was her duty to educate the South African community (specifically the younger generation) on the danger of TB, which prompted her to launch the “#BreakTheStigmaCampaign” campaign.
Ok, with a title like “Dr. Tumi,” it may not be THAT surprising that this 40-year old Gospel singer is also a doctor! Offstage, Dr. Tumi goes by Tumisang Makweya; his wife is Kgaogelo Makweya. Born in Seshego, Limpopo, Dr. Tumi is best known for his many popular Gospel albums (such as “Love On The Cross” & “The Gathering Of Worshippers”). Outside of his singing career, Dr. Tumi spent six years earning his medical degree at the Medical University of Southern Africa (Medunsa). He currently co-owns a private medical practice with his brother in Polokwane.
Those who frequently watch South African television will no doubt be familiar with Musa Mthombeni, a popular, well-known TV broadcaster. Not only is he often recognized for his work on the television and as a radio host, but he’s also seen celebrity success online as well (specifically his social media accounts!). Musa is also a licensed doctor who received his degree from Wits University. Extremely successful with an estimated net worth of over $2 million USD, he is currently engaged to Liesl Laurie, a South African model who earned the title of Miss South Africa 2015.
