Basetsana Kumalo on her memoir – “It’s the most important project of my life”
SA television personality and businesswoman Basetsana Kumalo revealed that the most important project of her life is a memoir she’s penned down, titled – “Bassie: My Journey of Hope”.
The memoir which is set to be released in October details the icon’s life, from her rise to fame as a fresh-faced Miss South Africa in 1994 to the face of South Africa’s new democracy and a media mogul.
Taking to social media, Basetsana said:
“Writing my Memoir has been the most intense, yet cathartic, liberating and healing journey. It is not one of the important projects of my life, it is The MOST important project of my life. I laughed, I cried, I reflected, I counted my blessings, I am standing in the light of my own truth.”
In a video shared by the philanthropist, she said:
“I didn’t want to rush my memoir and write it too early on in my life. I am glad I didn’t because I have lived so much more. I lost my parents on this life journey, some of my businesses have failed, and I just wanted my book to just be an honest and candid account of my life.”
