"Welcome to Spitori with Jackie, today we have Mr Dlamini Jr," said the actress upon welcoming Ntobeko. "I'm going to ask you what do you think a word means in Spitori and you are going to tell me."

She asked the young actor what the word Modowva means and the actor seemed clueless and Leera told him not to take hints from their cast members. His response was, does it mean like Modowva, move over? Everyone on set burst into laughter.

Jackie then revealed that the word actually means a car that is stolen. She then asked him to use it in a sentence and his example was, "Ke tshwere Modwva"

She teased him further and said, "You are so proud after move over/ Modowva" and after that Ntobeke said that he wants to learn another Pitori word. She also encourage her followersto vote for Ntobeko Sishi as he's been nominated for 'Best Male' actor at the KZN Entertainment Awards.
