Yeye believed so strongly in his culinary talent that he has challenged fellow footballers in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to a fun little cook-off, reported Sowetanlive.

Yeye is married to the beautiful and outrageously talented radio and TV personality Mpho Maboi. The 35-year-old loves his days at home where he gets to cook for his family and spend time with his wife and two gorgeous girls, Keneilwe and son Thato.

"I enjoy cooking for my family. I can whip up many dishes but my favourites are dishes that include fish or chicken.”
"It's a way of de-stressing, it's a way of taking the mind off football and focusing on making the best tasting food.”
"I think I would win if there was a cooking competition in the PSL.”
"And my skills in the kitchen are not just limited to the pot, I also like baking and being creative with food."

Yeye prefers to live a simpler and quiet life to that of his fast-paced and glitzy colleagues.

"I am a family man and I have never been the type of person to go out a lot or be all over the place. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.” learnt that Yeye believes strongly in the importance of family and staying spiritually. He is a man of God and spends his Sundays at church in Soweto praise singing.

"It has contributed to me staying grounded and it was a personal choice; it has taken my spiritual journey to another level.”
"I enjoy singing with the congregation because it is a form of worship. The good thing is that you don't have to have a beautiful voice.”

This super star dad is doing it right.
