I only had a dream – a dream of being on Television. And boy, what a rollercoaster of a journey it has been…How do I say goodbye to a city that made me who I am today. A city that introduced me to your lounges every Tuesday 6pm. Kodwa ke – okungapheli kuyahlola. Nothing really lasts forever” he wrote.

My head is held high. My kids will know that – daddy dreamt, daddy believed, daddy acted, daddy soldiered-on and daddy achieved!What a journey. What a chapter. What an era.Time may pass – but the MEMORIES will remain forever. ✍️And that’s how we end it. This is the END! Thank you Johannesburg! Thank you GP” he wrote.
