edi­tor’s let­ter

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

dur­ing my time as a jour­nal­ist, i’ve met a lot of celebs, some up-and-com­ing, oth­ers idols who left me starstruck. in 2010, while work­ing for an­other ti­tle, i as­signed one of the jour­nal­ists a pro­file on simba mhere, who had just won a tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion to be a pre­sen­ter on top billing. the journo couldn’t stop gush­ing about this at­trac­tive, and hum­ble man. cyn­i­cally, i won­dered how long he’d stay that way, but ev­ery en­counter i had, i was left starstruck by his hu­mil­ity. trag­i­cally simba died in a re­cent car crash. simba, thank you for show­ing us that peo­ple don’t al­ways change when they find fame. your loved ones are in our thoughts.
