- Popular Facebook do-gooder, BI Phakathi, has melted thousands of hearts in a video in which he buys an old lady groceries
- In the footage, the two can be seen walking around the grocery store while BI encourages the gogo to take whatever she likes
- The video of the humbled gogo being blessed by BI received thousands of reactions on Facebook
BI has managed to do it again. This time, at the receiving end of his generosity and kind-heartedness was Gogo Mbingo. BI, choosing to remain behind the lens, once again shared a video of himself and the granny in a grocery store.
He can be heard asking Gogo Mbingo to take whatever she wanted. Gogo Mbingo, clearly taken aback by the gesture and struggling to accept his generosity, cautiously does as he says. In the video, which was posted on Facebook on the popular BI Phakathi page, BI can be heard encouraging the old lady to get whatever she needs.
Thereafter BI walks the lady to the cash registers where he gives her an unknown amount of cash to pay for the goods. All while Granny Mbingo wonders out loud whether or not she had died and went to Heaven.
Facebook users and fans of BI's good works were once again left truly touched by the unknown man's good deeds. They flooded the comment section of the post with thank-you messages to the man, who is set on making a difference in other peoples' lives.
Here are some of the things they said.
Patricia Ennis said:
"You bring hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and dreams where there are only faded dreams."
Tiaan Lottering said:
"It's a little heartbreaking when she struggles to accept the generosity, almost like she feels like she doesn't deserve it. You deserve that and much more gogo!"
While Elroy Zietsman had this to say:
"This sealed it for me... He does not want fame or glory, he Gives it God and the fact I don't know your face or anything about you is the bonus. Wow brother, God bless."
Meanwhile, in other Briefly.co.za news, a business operation analyst and pilot, Wilfred Asuquo, has used himself as a perfect example of how education is very important in achieving great success.
On his LinkedIn page, the Nigerian advises people against the belief that education is unimportant in making it in life, stressing the fact that even the so-called billionaire dropouts hire educated individuals to help them run their businesses.
Wilfred said that having an education changed his life for good as he rose from being an errand boy in 1997 to a pilot in 2009. Wilfred said that education plus the one he received at technical schools like flight college made a big difference in his life. The pilot, however, said that in as much as education is a significant tool, improved emotional and social quotient go a long way too.
