The Bid­vest Wits for­ward in­sists Gabad­inho is his birth name given to him by his late grand­fa­ther. “I am from a foot­ball lov­ing fam­ily, and be­fore my grand­fa­ther passed away he held me in his hands as a baby and told my mom and dad that I am giv­ing this boy the name Gabad­inho,” Mhango says. “He was also called Gaba dur­ing his play­ing days as he loved jok­ing and laugh­ing. I don’t know the mean­ing of the name and even when I asked my grand­mother she couldn’t ex­plain this to me be­fore she also passed away.”
