"This next chapter is all about taking flight. I woke up with a heart full of gratitude. There must be a reason God saw it fit that I celebrate one more year on this planet after two bouts with COVID. I am blessed. To still be here. To still be healthy. To still be able to pursue my dreams and purpose with all I’ve been given. I am in awe of the Almighty. Thank you for another journey around the sun. And all the amazing humans who have touched my life in different ways."

Katlego is all about positivity and not allowing your situation to deter you from your true self. Inspired by Unathi Nkayi's post, Katlego said she is one in a billion.

"I am one in 7.9 Billion. Just saying that reminds me of the enormity of the blessing of still being alive to fulfill my purpose on this earth and the responsibility to honour my unique self in the process. Unique doesn’t even begin to describe it. The beauty about it is that I live and breathe amongst originals- each one 1 in 7.9 Billion. Be the best you you can be. Thank you for this beautiful reminder in your post," she said.

Unathi then reassured the actress of who she is and to not forget that, "Why are you making me SO EMOTIONAL. We need you. We need you to be the best version you can be. We could have lost year years ago when we were colleagues that side. BUT God said NO we still need you. Thank you for being you. We love you."

Another star who got COVID twice is Zola Hashatsi. He told Unathi Nkayi on Kaya FM that he planned on keeping it very healthy,

"Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues, please note my results for COVID-19 have come back positive." He posted. "I will be taking the necessary steps in keeping well and protecting others."

"When it first hit me, I never thought that it could hit me...I was like 'how' and you spend the first few seconds crying," Zola said. When he got diagnosed he said he had a moment of introspection where he had to go around telling his loved ones that he loves them and forgive those who have hurt him. "We are living in borrowed time, so you start to appreciate the little things."

Zola said he managed to survive the first one, but the second diagnosis had him contemplating and trying to figure how he got to where he was. From his experience, Zola says the second wave was very painful and is scared at the possibility of a third wave. "I felt things I never felt, I thought it was something I ate as I was driving from North West, I felt pains and cramps."
