#10  'There are gains yet, there's still some work to do'

Masilo Machaka is an avid Kaizer Chiefs, Bafana Bafana, Proteas, and Springbok supporter and a recognisable face in the stands.

Machaka can often be seen on our TV screens, singing and dancing during football, cricket and rugby matches.  A passionate sports fan, who hails from Botlokwa in the Limpopo province.

After matriculating, Machaka came to Johannesburg seeking better opportunities and greener pastures.

He says soon after his arrival in Johannesburg he discovered that there were vast opportunities in the sporting world.  “Back then I was supporting Kaizer Chiefs and I was only supporting football as rugby and cricket was not our thing as black people. After arriving in Joburg and realising there are opportunities in other sporting codes, I decided to venture into sports that's why I am also supporting cricket and rugby."

He reckons that while strides have been during the country’s democracy there are gains yet, there's still some work to do.
