"It's so important to be a tangible representation of a dream realised. I am not a fan of anyone in 2023 who says I grew up not seeing it because you are disrespecting those who came before you and showed you it was possible.
"I saw it. Do you know where I saw it? Siyabonga Nomvethe. One of the best football players in this country who went on to play in Europe and all over the world and he was for C-Section, KwaMashu. That man is one of the people who showed me, and one of the people who was tangible, who would drive his car and park it by his mother's house."
