“Last week Friday we bid farewell to my mom's first born … my sister. She was a very private person and her wishes were that her send-off should be just that. And we made sure that we granted her that. It was a peaceful dignified send-off.
“Now let me take this time to thank everyone who came through … the messages … friends and relatives … A special thank you to the black excellence service providers … We need to destigmatise the notion that black businesses give bad services … bad service is bad service. Good service is good service. Regardless of race.”
Tributes started pouring in from industry colleagues.
