In similar news, parents can be described as true guardian angels. Being able to spend countless years with them is a big blessing, one that Thando Punana is definitely grateful for.
The young man took to Facebook's ImStaying group to wish his stylish dad a happy 80th birthday.
#I'mStaying. The reason to stay is because my father is 80 years old but he's still doing the most in fashion. Also he's playing a central role in my life he's a mother, a father, also a friend. I love you Mpinga."
