“People can’t expect me not to be disappointed. It’s unrealistic. I had big plans for the R2 million but I’m happy Mpho won.”

“At one point in the game, Big Brother asked me who I think should take the money if not me, and I confidently said Mphowabadimo. I am very happy for her. We are still very good friends.”  

The father of two and tattoo shop owner from Alexandra township adds that he had big plans for the prize, which he will still follow through.  

“My plan was to get a bigger tattoo shop and expand the business. I wanted to build a house for my mother and then invest in my music. “
