To the show that lifted and carried me for 3 years. The people who tuned in and gave us so much love. SABC1 for believing in me. Crew and producers for creating such an amazing work experience. @shady_lurker & @lootlove2 for being such amazing professionals . I could never thank you enough. Such a bitter sweet moment... But when God changes the course of your life, you have to listen, no matter how hard it may be to let go. And leaving @thisisliveamp was a very difficult thing to do. But change has come. Thank you to everyone who's supported me and had my back. Thank you to everyone who loves me and keeps loving me even when I make mistakes. @sjulad @emmphive @bev_moubane I'm going to miss working with you, teasing you and even arguing with you more than you could ever fathom. You are going to achieve great things!!! To everyone with a dream. I'm letting you know that they can come true. Stay true to yourself so your destiny can recognize you and find you. One last time... Thank you @thisisliveamp & Thank you to @mzansi_fosho . GOD BLESS !!!! 🙏🏾❤️👑
