Basetsana Kumalo gives Mzansi a glimpse into her son, Nkosinathi’s Matric Dance.
Taking to social media, the author and former Miss South Africa shared a video detailing how the 18-year-old dressed for the event.
Nkosinathi’s date was also in the video clip, and Baset gushed over them.
“Two weeks ago we had the pleasure to witness our son’s Nkosinathi’s Matric Dance. Where did the time go!!! For me it was an emotional day that my boy is 18 years and a bigger world awaits him. His gorgeous date Sophie was simply breathtaking in a @gavinrajah creation. Having you as a son Nathi has been one of the greatest gifts that life has given me. For all that you have been, for all that you are, for all that you’re yet to be,” she wrote.
“To my son – Don’t let anyone take you for granted. Always hold your head up high. Never stop believing in yourself. Just go forth and aim for the skies. I may not carry you in my arms anymore, but I will always carry you in my heart. You have given me so many reasons to be proud of the man you have become, but the proudest moment for me is telling others you are my son. Love always, mom. To the Tribe that came to see him off (we are a tribe) and they say it takes a village to raise a child, thank you very much. amaNtungwa ayabonga,” Basetsana added.
