Briefly tell us about yourself; where were you born and raised?
A: I am a humble, down-to-earth guy who likes to see the best in everyone no matter what, that quiet guy in the corner on a mission to do well and be good. I am very much a small-town boy who was born and raised in Rundu. I’m told too many times that I am too nice and I am too kind; I need to be sterner because this industry will eat me alive. But I haven’t changed, I’m still that guy who’d rather turn the other cheek or apologise to you even if it was you who did me wrong . That’s just who I am.

As we fast approach the end of another year, I would like to take a moment and reflect on this eventful year. It has been a year of joy and sorrow, a year of reveal and forgiveness, a year of growth and transformation. The year 2015, has indeed been a year of many emotions, but none as deep and intense as the loss of a loved one.

I remember vividly when I visited her in hospital on the February 14, with red and white roses, as well as teddy bears and asked her to be my Valentine.
