Hundreds of Twitter users replied to his tweet with a similar message – that he had inspired them.

Many of them expressed a wish that they could also do the same for their parents. One of them was @headwishr.

He replied, “I like what you’re doing. I have the same belief and I pray every day that God bless me so that I can build my father a better house and just take him on a drive to the ocean while he’s still alive. You inspired me warra, keep it up.”

@MothibaBoledi added, “I am so happy for bomma. She raised a prince ka motente. Well done bro.”

AJ Mogolo congratulated Madihlaba, “Congrats my brother. If your mother’s heart is happy, you will get lots of blessings.”

This is indeed top work from Madihlaba, who hails from Limpopo.
