Thando Thabethe recently shared a post on Twitter in which she describes herself as ‘unshaken’, after experiencing death at first hand.
Taking to Twitter the 5Fm DJ opened up about how she had faced loss twice when her father committed suicide as well as when she lost her brother and was unperturbed by most things.
“What people don’t understand is that once you have seen your father commit suicide, and your brother’s bloody dead body...you become UNSHAKEN!!!” Thando tweeted to which she continued, “I am UNSHAKEN AND EVERYDAY, EVERYDAY I CHOOSE HAPPINESS!!”
Earlier this year the 28-year-old penned a heartfelt birthday message to her late dad on her Instagram,
“Daddy would have been 56 today ...I wish you were here to see the woman I have grown into. I have no doubt that you look over and have been very instrumental in my life here on earth,” Thando captioned a photograph of her younger self and father.
In the post Thando popular known to her fans as Thabooty, also expressed how much she missed her father, “I miss your voice, your laughter, your love, drinking milk together before we went to bed, eating raw liver.”
“...and no doubt my love for music is as a result of your influence...don’t worry about your girls I’m doing my damn best!!! Happy birthday Daddy.”
Just a few days after the special dedication to her father, Thando shared another post wishing her late brother who died in 2015 Sibusiso Thabete a happy birthday,
“How come you don’t call me anymore??? I love you I miss you ....this is the greatest pain of my life, so I choose to tuck it away and pretend you are in Croatia having the time of your life,” she captioned a snap of her and her younger brother.
“You leaving will NEVER make sense to me...the greatest loss of my life!!! No pain can ever amount to this!!! Happy birthday brother @sibu_t”
Thando’s tweet comes after she received backlash
from tweeps who described her complexion as ‘underexposed’ while posing on the cover of Cosmopolitan.
