Why date a sugar daddy?

“We are broken. My siblings and I are broken because I think our parents couldn't articulate the kind of a family we are in ... So we have daddy issues.”

How rich was Mandla?

“We had clothes but we would still go shop per person for R60k a day. It got to a point that when we got to a shop, people had to leave so we could close the doors. We would have breakfast in the shop, like go in our robes to whatever shops and we'd have our breakfast in the shop.”

Did you ever love Mandla?

“No. I worshipped him because I had a 'hero syndrome'. He saved me and gave me what I've always dreamt about. He was like God to me.”
