My friend is an author, wena umngane wakho wenzani?Jokes aside though…I have known you since we were in our 20's, and what a singular privilege it is that you asked me to pen your Foreword…most of what I needed to say to you is in that tribute to you. Congratulations and well done my ROCKSTAR friend. You give others the right to believe in their dreams, you my friend broke the mould and then you re-built it with your own specs……wooooosheeeeem uyaROCKA. Bakuyeke….uhamba wedwa….master of your own orchetra, keep conducting, keep singing, keep performing, continue to flourish, continue to prosper, continue being great. It is your time to bask in the beautiful warm sunrays that God has bestowed upon you. Shine on sunshine. As we launch your book, Dominoes by @somizi this evening, I am reminded of the words of Marianne Williamson: "Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Congratulations Bazala!!!!
Well done to Somizi for another biggie in the bag. Will you be getting the star’s book?
Let us know.
