Speaking to News24, Nduduzo Nyanda shared how he and Eusebius met and what he will always remember the former PowerFM and 702 radio host for the most.

A distraught Nduduzo, 35, said that he met Eusebius in 2014 when he worked for a media researching firm.

“Some of our clients used to do work with PowerFM. It meant me having to sit and follow some of his slots, which is when I actually started listening to him.

“I actually started off as a listener, and I used to call in. I guess after calling in, he reached out, and quite literally, we just started chatting from there,” he said.

Nduduzo went on to say that he will rember Eusebius for his selflessness. He says the Run, Racist, Run author was one of the most generous people.

“If not with his time, it was with resources. He was always willing to help anytime he could. It usually took a lot out of him, which is why a lot of people would also only know one side of him. Because he would also need a lot of time for himself, but with that, he was also super loving. Any part of his family would let you know. He gave a 110% of himself, and that’s the person I remember.”

In addition, Nduduzo said he would remember his partner for his great sense of humour – especially his dad jokes.

“We used to laugh together a lot. That’s what I loved about it.”


Eusebius was born in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape, on 28 March 1978. He went on to obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Philosophy as well as a Master in Philosophy from Rhodes University.

Besides writing for various local and international publications, and hosting radio talk shows, he also advocated for the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.

“McKaiser is community-driven and provides a living example of victory over racism and homophobia. He is a strong advocate of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Intersex community and educates the public about gay rights and the immorality of crimes committed against homosexuals,” Rhodes University wrote on its website.
