- Most Mzansi celebs had an awesome Father's Day and thanked their fathers for being there for them
- However, the day was a bittersweet one for choreographer and presenter Bontle Modiselle
- The star expressed sadness at her father not being in her life growing up
Bontle Modiselle was able to celebrate Father's Day for the first time in a long time this year.
The star told fans that she hadn't celebrated Father's Day since her father became absent in 1997.
However, this year she was happy spend it with her husband and their newborn daughter.
Bontle said, "I forgot my dad's voice. I don't know what he smells like? What was his height. I heard he was a better cook than my mom, I don't know how his food tastes. Did he every cry? What was his laugh like? How can I be so much like someone I don't remember. Why did you leave? #Father'sDay"
Bontle explained that yesterday would be her first Father's Day of pure bliss as she'd get to spend the day with her own little family.
She wrote, "Father's Day. It's been a bitter taste in my mouth since '97. Tomorrow's a different one - the first I get to celebrate and I can't describe how beautiful this feeling is."
Bontle and her hubby, Priddy Ugly, welcomed a little girl late last year.
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that the star is smitten with her daughter and often took her with to work before lockdown.
