Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m the most humbled girl who loves soccer too much; I’m from Eastern Cape in the rural areas. I love cooking and I like being in doors when I’m not working. I love watching soccer and I am netball player.
When did you start supporting your team?
I started supporting Orlando Pirates when I was very young because my father loved soccer too much… I think I was 11-years old.
How many jerseys do you own of your favourite club?
I have four jerseys.
What has been your favourite match you’ve watched since supporting your team?
My favourite game was last year when they were playing in the Telkom Knockout and it was Kaizer Chiefs vs Orlando Pirates; was so happy because we beaten them as we always do.
Worst bad game you’ve watched?
Worst bad game was last year when we were beaten by Baroka FC at Port Elizabeth in the final Telkom Knockout. It was very painful and I was crying like a baby.
Best place to watch your team is: Stadium, Home or Sports Bar?
Stadium: there is always that vavavum when you are with other fans supporting the same team – it is always nice to be together as supporters, we dance and sing.
You’re a very sexy lady. What is it that makes you sexy?
I know the clothes that fit me well and my style – that is why I’m always sexy and having nice cosmetics. I have my money, so I afford to buy myself everything that’s nice.
How does a man go about stealing your heart?
Must be the smart guy, tall, dark, skinny and must have a six-pack. [Laughs] And lastly, must be educated then if he is like that I’m all for him.
What do you do when not watching football?
I love travelling with friends, attending women’s conventions, and church meeting and netball tournaments.
What do you do on Friday or Saturday nights?
If I’m not working definitely I’m at church on night prayer, or go on netball tournaments or chill with my family.
What’s the funniest thing a guy’s done to impress you?
He once told that he got a car, every time when he is visiting me he comes driving it, and after sometime I was told that the car belongs to his parents.
When you not working, what do you do for fun?
I just chill at home with my family.
What makes a great party?
I’m very sweet. I hardly get angry. So I’m nice, I love dancing and singing.
What’s your favourite restaurant or take-away order?
Nando’s is the best!
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I was once given money to buy food by my mother at university and I went straight to shop to buy shoes and an Orlando Pirates jersey.
What else would you learn if you had the time to learn anything?

Minnie Dlamini Jones (TV presenter)
