Thando Thabethe had all of us almost reaching for tissues when she penned a heartfelt tribute to her phenomenal mother. 


The TV personality and her mother are completely inseparable - completely serving relationship goals and we are here for it!

It is no secret that mothers are game-changers in life. Through all the hurdles we endure they are our leading light. They provide words for comfort, but are quick to rein us in when we have stepped out of line. They are rocks who constantly celebrate our triumphs and share in our distress.

Thando, who has a solid and warm relationship with her mother, does not miss the opportunity to declare her love and continuous support for her loving mother. On Saturday, Thando took to Twitter to hail her mother for taking an early retirement to fund her studies in accounting, even though she ended up leaving the profession to pursue a career behind the mic and screen. 

Thabooty paid tribute to her mom for rallying behind her and supporting her career in radio. She spoke fondly of how her mother would bear the winter colds in the parking lot; waiting for her to do her radio gig.

“She would park her busted old Audi, without a heater in the coldest winters and sit in the parking lot while I do a grave radio show that wasn't even mine.

“I have never quite grasped how forward thinking, and mentally liberated she must have been to not only be OK with my wild dreams, but actually get behind them and be my biggest supporter, I love you Mom," she wrote.

To celebrate her mom's life and contribution towards her success in 2017, Thando was on everyone's lips after she took it to the next level in the most profound way. The all-round entertainer showered her mom with a brand-new Mercedes Benz and posted it on her Twitter. It didn't end there, she also built her her dream house.

Thando has constantly described her mother as a fearless woman who is her pillar of her strength.
