I was still young when I started doing this show, Ezingaseze Zabuna, and on all radio stations this particular show is presented by old and matured brothers.“When I told Joe that I will not be able to present it, he said I can do it. I thank Bra Joe and I thank Thanda Ndlovu. I worked with him when we had different sports on Sunday like the Comrades Marathon, he had amazing love. I thank you Gatsheni. I thank Bonga Mpanza who was the station manager,” she said.
