Former child star Dr Musa Mthombeni’s mom’s goal for the new year is to have grandchildren.
In a Whatsapp message thread shared by Musa on his Instagram page, his mother told him that she is “fasting and praying” for grandchildren.
“I just pray and fast for grandkids in 2020 bathong,” she told her son.
This was after Musa reminded her to go for annual check ups with a cardiologist and gynae.
“Mam’Mthombeni is back to fighting me as usual. All I did was request her to go for a medical check up because honestly our parents are getting old and these diseases don’t just happen over night, they’re slow so we must find them before they cause damage... kanti!!! Will there ever be an interaction that doesn’t end with “fasting for grandchildren [sic],” he captioned a screenshot of their conversation.
The doctor then encouraged everyone to address these uncomfortable topics with their parents as it is better to be safe than sorry.
“With that said, speak to your parents about their health and their life policies and funeral covers and all that very uncomfortable stuff. Don’t be caught by surprise. #DoctorsOrders”
Musa has in the past expressed his interest actress Thuso Mbedu. Even though dating rumours sparked when they shared a photo at the 2018 South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTA's), Musa said he was still single.
