Whilst Abdul and S.K continue to entertain the nation every night on TV, their father, back in KZN is busy empowering and inspiring township kids to learn self-defence through Goju-Kai Karate.
The unwavering support and pride that the Khoza brothers constantly show towards each other is always admirable.
It's also admirable to see how much pride they have to be the sons of Karate legend Mr Shiyan Stanly Khoza.
Mr Khoza is a devoted karate sportsman who has represented South Africa on more than one occasion in the discipline of Karate-dojo.
In a recent Instagram post by his son, Abdul Khoza, we see the young actor gush over his father who is clearly seen teaching a group of young learners the disciplines of karate.
My father has dedicated his life to making a difference with the disciplines of Goju-Kai Karate, I myself am a product of the style of Goju and am the son of a legendary KZN born Zulu Man by the name of Shiyan Stanley Mfanafuthi Raphiq Khoza...I shall say no more. #myfatherisahero #legaciesatemadefrompassion #forevermyrolemodel #myfathermypride @khozastanley
SK Khoza has also, many times, shown the love pride and respect he has for his father.
The Khoza men can be so cute when together.
Honestly I'm lost of words to say or to describe the love and respect I have for my father. I am definitely the man I am today because of him ( and mom ). So happy my brother @abdul_khoza and I could be out here today to celebrate @khozastanley (my father) birthday with him, it's about to go down, already have all his old school favorites that he played for us growing up, so today we will make it extra special... #BloodIsThickerThanWater #Family #LikeFatherLikeSons #OurShihan #OurLegacy #Khoza
