The bromance between musician Zakes Bantwini and radio host Thabo “Tbo Touch” Molefe had fans in awe on Thursday 7 April.

The Osama hitmaker took to the Metro FM studios during Touch’s drive show, The Touch Down, to give him his flowers – in both the literal and figurative sense.

Zakes put together a heartwarming surprise for the radio presenter who rejoined the SABC radio station after he resigned in 2016.

Tbo Touch, who had no idea about the surprise as his producer hid it from him, could not believe it when Zakes walked into the studio with a big red bouquet of roses.

“Bro, I bought you 600 flowers. I’ve never bought a red flower for a man,” the Imali singer said.

Explaining the significance of the 600 flowers he said: “It’s been six years since you were here. So every hundred represents a year because your energy is always on a 100.”

He also thanked the media personality for his support over the years and the love he gave when he released his hit song, Osama.

Zakes took to his Instagram to share the video, watch below:

“600 flowers for 6years of absence on @metrofmsa that’s 100 flowers for each year. My Brother @zakesbantwini affirmed a life lesson I wish to practice and share with everyone I love and respect. Thank you for the surprise my Brother and thank you for the unsurpassed excellence of your craft,” he wrote.
