Born and bred in Port Elizabeth, the Usuthu forward gives credit to his older brothers who ultimately motivated him to become the player that he is today.
“I grew up in Motherwell. My older brothers were really influential in my decision to become a professional footballer because of their love for football,” he said.
The 21 year- old who is affectionately known by his teammates as “Balotelli” is enjoying his second season in the Absa Premiership having joined Usuthu from the Bidvest Wits Reserves.
He is a promising forward on the up and up, currently imbibing a wealth of knowledge from veteran teammates in the striking department such as Mabhuti Khenyeza and Siyabonga Nomvethe.
