TV personality Siv Ngesi has described the last moments between him and his late father as precious and it constantly motivates him to become the successful son he promised his father he'd be. 

During an interview with Anele on Real Talk with Anele Siv explained that his father died after being involved in a car accident in 2004.

"He was in and out. I remember [when] he was on his [death] bed and I told him 'dad I am going to make you proud'. He could still signal, so he signaled [a thumbs up] when I said "dad I am going to be rich, I am going to be successful and I am going to make you proud." It was near the end. Then it got really bad and we got to a point where we had to decide to switch off [the machines]," he explained.

Siv said his father's death was the "worst and best" thing that could have happened to him. 

The presenter said that as a family they also learnt  to tell each other how much they loved each other constantly.  

"I became the man of the family. My sisters and my family became closer after my dad died. I tell my mom that I love her always because you never know when [things might happen]. The last moment I had with my dad was the day before he left for this drive. I remember I never said I love you, so now we made a conscious decision as a family [to tell each other," he said.
