“There was a place in Alexandra, Bra Pat’s Tavern. That’s when I realised that I made it in life, [Bennett] Chenene and I had a bill. If we don’t have money, we’ll go to Bra Pat. We’d just say Bra Pat gives us alcohol for R2 000. We’d take alcohol home. It would be three bottles [spirits], savannahs and other things to put in the fridge for the fun times to begin.
With regards to their escapades with women, he said:
"We would enjoy Play Station, I was addicted to it but Chenene was not into it. We would drive to Pretoria. If not Pretoria, there was someone at UJ [University of Johannesburg]. If not UJ, we would drive to Randburg, you know? We had branches ”
