Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m a true Buccaneer, Pedi Queen and a Lutheran church member. I like to spend most of my time alone, indoor watching cartoons or football. My attitude will always be determined by how you treat me.
When did you start supporting your team?
They teach us to support Pirates while we are still young at home. They tell us that the real team is Orlando Pirates, these yellow one we don’t even mention its name. So, I can say I started supporting Pirates since I was born.
How many jerseys do you own of your favourite club?
Every season we get jerseys.
What has been your favourite match you’ve watched since supporting your team?[Laughs] Let me say that every game that we won against cHIVes [Kaizer Chiefs] was the best.
Do guys ask for your numbers at the stadium? If yes, what do you do?[Laughs] What a question! They do ask for my numbers. I ask them to follow me on my social networks instead.
Worst bad game you’ve watched?
When we lost 6-1 against SuperSport United.
Best place to watch your team is: Stadium, Home or Sports Bar? And why that place?
Stadium when we are not playing against Kaizer Chiefs because I won’t be able to hold the pressure if we lose against them. But with any teams, I’ll prefer stadium and enjoy with other Buccaneers.
How has 2018 been for you?
So far so good… I can’t complain about it… plus my team is doing well… sooo yokinto is fine.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I always hear people saying “no one is perfect”. [Laughs] I’m just perfect hey… I love everything about me.
What dish do you cook perfectly, every time?
Yhooooo!! I hate cooking. [Laughs] I only master these simple meals hey… I can say pasta and mince.
Famous pick-up line guys use at you?
“How on earth does a beautiful girl like you support Pirates?”
Describe the kind of guy that would catch your eyes…[Laughs] Mmm… tall, dark and not really handsome, but he must look good hey.
What do you look for in clothing?
I never want to look like I just grabbed anything and put it on. I want to communicate that my outfit accurately reflects who I am and projects how I plan to attack my day. I believe that clothing is wearing something that you are comfortable at.
If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?
I don’t want to leave South Africa. People of this country are blessed. [Laughs] I would choose any place around South Africa.
And, finally, where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years I want to see myself at least being independent and starting my own family. Having my own kids and leaving my life you know!
