HOW TO BE A COOL DAD

CityPress - - Front Page -

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.
