Makhosazane Twala, the Big Brother Titans Season 1 reality show winner, who is also known as Khosi, has narrated the incident that made her believe in the existence of God.
The reality star in a recent interview with media personality, Hero Daniels, spoke about her family’s struggle after her parents separated.
She said the period her mum left her dad to work in another city after he became addicted to drinking and smoking was the “worst time” of her life.
The 25-year-old South African journalist said her father’s business crumbled and he lost all his six cars after he got influenced by “bad friends.”
She said she and her siblings left their home to live with their grandparents after their mum relocated.
Khosi said it was while living with her grandparents that she learned how to pray.
She said, “They [my grandparents] taught me how to pray and believe in God. I have one particular story where I believed in God. I was like, God exists.
“I remember it so vividly. My granddad was on the phone with my mum and I was like in the night. Maybe let’s just say 9pm or 8pm. Well, I don’t know, I was a baby. All I know is that it is dark because I was probably like 4 or 3. It was dark and I was asking my grandmother like, what’s wrong because he [granddad] was on the phone with my mum.
“And she says that my mum still haven’t gotten where she is. She was supposed to be visiting us that weekend. She would come twice a month for two days. So, she had come to visit us and she was going back. There was no direct transport because she didn’t have a car, so she entered Hi-[Five] because we lost everything. We had like six cars but we lost all of them.
“She entered Hi to her workplace and there was no transport so she was stuck in the middle and it was 9pm somewhere in the bushes. I could hear my granddad talking to my mum over the phone, and I’m only like 3 or 4. And I was so worried about my mum. I asked my granddad that if she going to be okay? Then he was like, we can only just pray.
“I was like, how can God be? What can we do to make sure she is okay? Then he started explaining how God works. And you know when you are in a desperate situation like that, whatever a person tells you is going to be a gospel at that time. So, he explained to me that we can just pray. This is how God works. This is what God can do for her.
“Then I went to pray. I prayed and prayed and prayed. I was only 3, could you imagine? All I know was that the next thing I heard was that my mum was home safely. I was like, wow! This God’s story works [laughs].”
