"I still believe that parents need to be spoiled while they are still alive. I know to some people it may sound like I'm bragging but my aim is to motivate others to spoil their parents and make them happy while they are still here. We all know some people only get time to brag about their parents during funerals when policies are paid out. #imstaying."
The people of Mzansi agree
The comments show that Mzansi is in full support of Melusi's advice and many people say his parents raised him the right way and they must be proud.
Let's check out some of the comments:
"That's awesome. God bless you and your lovely parents. They raised you right and you are really making them proud. You are so blessed with them and they with you."

"Testament to how you were raised, your parents must be very proud and bless you for spoiling and loving them all you can."
"Wow! That's awesome! I bet your parents loved every minute! God Bless you all!"
"Well done. That's one of the best brags ever in a million years. Blessing parents while they are still alive is the best gift you can give yourself and to them. I love it, good encouragement."
Diane Jenny Wheatley:
"Absolutely awesome, what an amazing experience for them. Your dad is crazy to swim in that cold water, bless him. They have lots to tell the folks back home. You are a good man. Bless you all. Wish my parents were still alive, I miss them so much."
"Thank you for sharing, Melusi. You’re not bragging - you’re setting a great example and hopefully inspiring others to do the same."
Jennifer Anne Taylor:
"That's wonderful! You are so right. Appreciate your parents while you still have them because you will miss them so much when they are gone."
