What follows are verses that makes reference to many icons who have since transcended from Flabba, Mahlathini, TK, Maya Angelou, Hugh Masekela, Gugu Zulu, Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs and a whole lot more.
And in pure ProVerb style, he finds an engaging way to weave these people's stories together in such a way you can picture his version of heaven. He makes it look so easy, your fave probably thinks they can do it, too.
