Motlatsi Mafatshe’s late How To Ruin Christmas co-star Busi Lurayi passed away nearly a year agio, on Sunday, 10 July 2022 at her residence at the age of 36.

Mafatshe tells David in the interview that Lurayi called him a week before she passed away and it was the shortest call as when they usually talk for three hours: “That was the shortest call and it took 30 minutes.”

“You know when these things happen, you are like was ‘she saying bye’? I’m lucky. It’s like I want to tell everyone that she called me. You want to hold onto something. Maybe it’s how we deal with it,” he adds.

The actor adds that the City Ses’La star was incredible, as she used to fight for everyone and used to get into trouble for it and sometimes, she’d go overboard: “She was something else, so honest and giving.”

TshisaLIVE reports that former The Queen actress Rami Chuene, who also starred alongside Lurayi also paid tribute to her:

Chuene revealed that the cast was heartbroken by her passing and that there so many things they could say as the cast and they don’t understand it, they can’t comprehend it, and they can’t internalise her passing.

Mafatshe adds that his mother hasn’t cancelled the stop order even after he started working, had children and got married.

He added that his sister’s also get R100’s and he’Il always be thankful for that, because his mother has been doing it since forever.

“I also have to give her money every month. She gives R100, I give her a lot more.”

When radio personality and podcaster David Mashabela asks the actor Motlatsi Mafatshe if he feels the need to give his mother money, he replies: “I have to. It helps me to work harder for the rest of my life. (Valium online) We shouldn’t call it black tax. Black tax is narcissist behaviour. They’re teaching you to be selfish. It’s your family.”
