This chick is twisted.

Her name is Lunga... short for Nokulunga Buthelezi. She’s from South Africa. Lunga is a contortionist. The best I’ve ever seen. (And I’ve been to a few Cirque du Soleil shows.)

I present for your inspection two vidclips. The first is from Dutch TV. Lunga performs her routine from the European theatrical extravaganza “Afrika! Afrika!”

The second clip finds Lunga in the U.S.A., back when she was with the all-black UniverSoul Circus (which I’d never heard of before).

There is much more Lunga on YouTube. Just search for “Lunga” or “Nokulunga.” (Hat-tip: Happybutterfly.)

Man, Dave. where you been? You never heard of Ricky Walker's Universoul Circus?

Ricky used to promote the Fresh Fest concert tours in the early '80s, got tired of runnin' after all these Hip Hop artists, and came up with the Circus. Shyt is fun, In fact, I'm going this evening.

IW and Fisher: What can I tell you? I stopped reading Jet magazine in high school, and I quit listening to black radio in the mid-'80s. How else is a mug supposed to find out about the all-black circus??

That was some baad shit. Provoked a little freakiness in the recess of my mind. And I know the talk show host was looking at her box while she was doing her thing.

I've seen a few commercials for the Universouul circus, and actually went there once. Very cool
