There are certain points in one's life where food play a significant role, especially on occasions that involve a slaughtering of an animal.

In most traditional black families, when a family member has achieved something, a feast is likely going to be prepared as a means of celebration. Also, when someone is about to embark on a long distance trip, a woman in most cases is bound to pack away 'Umphako' (food for the journey). These are what we'd call 'love languages'.

Mzansi's shining star, Makazole Mapimpi can look forward to being welcomed home by a hearty traditional meal prepared by his grandmother in the Eastern Cape.

Makazole's grandmother, Nofikelepi Mapimpi exclusively spoke to EWN about how proud she is of her grandson, explaining thst she will slaughter ten chickens to celebrate his latest feat.

"Since he was in school, this is what he wanted. I used to shout at him [for playing], then I realised I was wrong. He knew the reasons he was at school. He wanted rugby."

In a video shared by Twitter user, @gqakhwe from EWN, Makazole's grandmother had this to say:

Another video from Newzroom 405, about the story of Makazole's humble beginnings in the Eastern Cape also did the rounds.

Makazole Mapimpi did the most as he became the first black South African to score a try at a rugby world cup -  which South Africa subsequently won.

Ever since gaining global fame, Makazole has become a topic of discussion, especially amongst the female circles. One female Tweep even changed her handle to, Mrs Mapimpi....Wow!
