HOW TO BE A COOL DAD
Mthokozisi ‘DJ Tira’ Khathi (right), owner of the Afrotainment music label, says when he was growing up, his parents taught him the importance of family. Khathi is the father of two sons – Junior (17) and Chase (4) – and a three-month-old daughter, Chichi, who couldn’t be part of the photoshoot because her dad says she’s too young. ‘I want to be a great dad to my kids,’ he says. Khathi says he makes a point of spending time with them, even though he has a demanding job as a businessman and DJ. ‘We go out to watch movies or sometimes we do adventurous things like biking – and Chase loves it,’ he says. Khathi receives gifts from his kids every year on Father’s Day. He says the most memorable gift he ever received was an expensive watch, but he didn’t want to reveal what brand it was or how much it had cost.
