Oratile Masedi penned a heartfelt message to his mother on Instagram, TV presenter Vinolia Mashego, saying her death is like "a bad dream I'm never ever gonna wake up from".

Known as "V-Mash," the former Jam Alley presenter died in 2020. According to reports, she died at her home in Mamelodi.

"No one loved me like you did, no one cared for me like you did, no one sacrificed for me like you did, no one prayed for me like you did, no one protected me like you did, no one shaped me like you did, NO ONE MADE ME HAPPY LIKE YOU, [sic]" Oratile captioned a photo of his mother.

"Today I'm on my knees, looking up and saying thank you for the times we spend here on earth together, for all the times we cried, laughed, jumped, screamed, played, baked, prayed, watched TV, did dishes together. 

"If I had to choose another mother again, I'D CHOOSE YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, [sic]" he said in the post.

"I'm trying my Best to pick where you left off and I hope you're proud of me, [sic]" said Oratile, who is a popular social media influencer.

Speaking to Move following his mother's death, he said that he was always hesitant about pursuing a career in entertainment because he didn't want to live in her shadow. 

"I want to do it my way and on my own. I wanted to make sure that people love me for who I am and what I do, not because I am her son," he said.

Oratile also has a special dedication to his mother in his Instagram bio, saying: "I do everything I do for you mom."
