Owner of Afrotainment music label, Mthokozisi “DJ Tira” Khathi, says growing up with his parents taught him the importance of family.

Khathi is a father of two sons, Junior (17), Chase (4) and three-month-old daughter Chichi. Khathi said Chichi couldn’t be part of the Father’s Day photoshoot because she was too young.

“I want to be a great dad to my kids,” he said.

Khathi tried by all means to spend time with them even though he had a demanding job as a businessman and DJ.

“We go out to watch movies or sometimes we would do adventurous games such as biking – and Chase loves it,” he says.

Khathi had a very close relationship with his dad. “We had our days where we would not talk to each other because of disagreements. But that won’t stop me from loving my dad. I appreciate the little things that he has taught me such as respect and to never forget where I come from,” he says.

Khathi remembered getting being rebuked by his overprotective dad when he came home late.

“These are the morals that I also want to instil in my children.”

Every year he received gifts from his kids. He says the most striking gift he received for Father’s Day was a beautiful, expensive watch, which he preferred not to describe in detail.

“I was so shocked when I received that watch ... I even asked my wife which bank [she and the kids] robbed because it’s worth a fortune,” he joked.

Although Khathi said he wasn’t big on celebrating Father’s Day, he did look forward to spending time with his family.

“Spending time with my family is priceless and it’s what I value the most. I couldn’t wait for my wife to cook me my favourite meal,” he smiled.
