2005 poster for Academy Award winning film, Tsotsis
A street thug, gangster or urban criminal. The term is based on a watered down version of Sesotho word "tsotsa", which means to dress flashy. Back in the 1940s they wore zoot suit and the gun and knife ruled the nights.
An uneducated female, dressed in flashy “ooh look at me, I'm an asshole” attire and accessorized with “ooh look at me, I'm an asshole” ratchet jewelry, fake gold necklace with "Bitch" written in Harlow Solid Italics for that classy touch.
1.) The good old fashion camp follower was a true prize. She was the wife or significant other of a 18th century soldier. She stood by her man and his company by nursing wounds, providing nourishment and wagon transportation if needed. These women were a part of the battalion and would risk their lives just to refill a canteen of water and march it on the battlefield. Too bad they don't make women like this anymore.
2.) A slut who provides “special” services for the military. She “camps” near military bases to pick up soldiers. She's like a military groupie looking to score with any officer and many gentlemen.

It's his job to present himself in a positive, prosperous-made-of-money kind of way to win her or him over. Prospecting a potential mate.
