Fathers’ day was a really beautiful one this year and various Mzansi celebrities took to social media to celebrate. Beautiful messages about a fathers’ love and sacrifice filled social media but one stood out. It was Bontle Modiselle’s message to her absent father.
The talented presenter and choreographer took to her Twitter account to reveal how much her father’s absence since 1997 had affected her life. In the tweet, she wondered about all the things she had heard about him including his cooking, his height & smell, and more. She also asked why he left.
She also revealed she had never celebrated fathers’ day until this year. According to her, she’ll be celebrating it for the first time with her husband and kid. The tweet got a lot of positive reactions from her fans who wished her well, and celebrated with her.
I forgot my dad’s voice. I don’t know what he smells like. What was his height? I heard he was a better cook than my mom, I don’t know how his food tastes. Did he ever cry? What was his laugh like? How can I be so much like someone I don’t remember? Why did you leave? #FathersDay

Father’s Day. It’s been a bitter taste in my mouth since ‘97. Tomorrow’s a different one – the first I get to celebrate for the first time and I can’t describe how beautiful this feeling is.
