      Or maybe because the father is a well-loved actor in 7e Laan... I don't know him personally but I know he'll add you on FB if you ask and reply when you post something (not that this is worth anything but I'm just saying)

    The girl needs to set a good example and get married. I know all about women's rights and stuff. But as a member of the black community it's time we encouraged for the creation of a healthy social system, with the family as a priority. Congratulations on the bouncing baby boy.

      I agree, there is no more stable an environment for a child than having a mother and father who are married. And BTW as a white I can say that we have plenty to learn from the black community, where they generally still respect their elders and family, unlike us where to date I've never met a white family in the 3 countries I lived in that isn't fk'd up riddled with family problems and feuds...
