Tanya Fear has joined the wagon as she revealed that she also would like people to know and understand that her name is Tanyaradzwa fear.
In a twitter post she said, “So inspired by @thandiwenewton reclaiming her full name.
“My full name is Tanyaradzwa – which means ‘we have been comforted-, I was named this because I was born the year my grandfather died.”
