TV personality Siv Ngesi shared a throwback Instagram post of his "first cover" - and it's super-cute! 

Although nowadays the Still Breathing actor graces the covers of some of the country's biggest titles - he had to start somewhere.

"My first cover," he captioned a photo of himself on the cover of a 2005 grade 7 English textbook.

Speaking to Channel24, Siv says that he was in grade 6 when the photo was taken, but doesn't remember much from that day. "I had my sights set on other covers," he laughs.

Siv says that he doesn't own his own copy, so if you find a dusty copy at the back of your desk drawer, hit him up!
