Dear Ncinci,

Mama wam, I understand life and the universe a little better now than I used to. I understand your role in my life. And you played it perfectly. For that, I love you with everything in me and for every memory we share together.

Please forgive my childish ways. I’ve let go of everything that we buried in the past since our conversation about my awakening in 2015.
Thank you for taking that call. I've healed since.

May you accept this offering as my first gift to you for Mother’s Day since my birth. I hope from this year onwards, you and I, my brothers and sisters included - and all their kids too, will celebrate Mother’s Day together. Just like we used to when Mamthembu was alive.

Ndiyakuthanda O’lady. I know awuzothi uyandithanda back but i know you do :)

Now let me go back to studio and do what I do best. Ubuyazi ba that’s what you gave birth to me for? To tell the world about my path from poverty to success to failure and to finally finding happiness within ourselves through art.

Until the next hug...shap shap.

Your son,
Me [your favourite 3rd born]
