In a jovial interview on Cliff Central, Bob Mabena shared very interesting stories about his life as a young man growing up in Atteridgeville and his knowledge about radio broadcasting as a whole.
During the interview, Bob spoke fondly of his life as a father of his seven kids and about his relationship with his own father whom he described as a very stubborn man.
Whilst speaking of his father, Bob mentioned something that surprised many of us, purely because we did not expect him to share so much information, especially to such an extent.
Bob's mom passed away when he was 11-years old after her passing Bob told Gareth that he decided to do a bit of calculation and discovered that his dad was actually his mom's Ben 10.
"I did the numbers and I found out that my father was a Ben 10(Laughs hysterically). And it kind of made sense why the relationship was so volatile. It was really one of those Mr & Mrs Smith relationships, they hated to love each other, and I think she (mom) was really miffed at the fact that she really liked this young guy and he had this bravado thing, this macho thing that he could bed an older woman than him, who had gone further to school than he had."
Bob went on to mention that he wished his parents were both alive long enough to write a book together about their rather interesting relationship.
Bob's father was also quite an intelligent man, the radio personality shared how his father left school in grade 7, went on to teach himself Latin and was a court interpreter and wrote books as well.
