One thing that brings me luck: The one thing that brings me luck is God. I pray every day in my heart. Sometimes I randomly pray without even realising that I am... so prayer brings me luck.
One interesting fact that may surprise you: The one thing that people would be surprised to know about me is that I talk to myself at the most unexpected times. For example, when we are eating as a family, if I feel that I need to talk to myself, I get up, leave my food and go straight to my mirror and talk to myself for hours. It's not normal, but I enjoy the time I spend alone

I'm so happy for them. But mainly for Niyaaz. I was really rooting hard for him!

Lol Ntokozo is a weird one. Talking to yourself is one thing but doing it for hours? But maybe it's therapeutic for her.
