Ishmael Morabe recently released a nostalgic song in which he reflects on life before 'making it'. Takalani gives Ishmael's fans a glimpse into his past. He also recently told of Bonang Matheba's generous heart and how sweet he thinks she is.
The musician behind Roba Le Teka remembered his life before he became a success and the role that beautiful Queen B played in his journey.
A memory that stands out for Ishmael is when Bonang was still in school. He was very broke and very hungry.
Bonang showed real compassion and gave him a plate of food.
To Ishmael, Bonang will always be that sweet girl. He looks past the glitz and glam that surrounds her nowadays.
I remember Bonang dude...Bonang...this one thing people don’t know...Bonang one time...I was hungry. I was broke at some point that one time...She actually took me to res [residence]...she used to go this res...not far from campus square...anyway, she used to go to school. The girl gave me a plate of food, I’ll never forget that Bonang before the Bonang that the people know, before she hit TV and all that, and so every time I see Bonang I’m like: 'They don’t know girl!'...she’ll always be sweet to me.
