Pokello is mourning the passing of her friend and brother Ginimbi. Pokello wrote a heart wrenching letter to Ginimbi titles when I see you read the letter below.
When I see you again.
I would tell you that I cried for 24 hrs till my heart bled out. I know you would laugh and say ‘Poki haupenge here?’
I would tell you, you hit Rockstar status and trended World-wide.
I would tell you, your fame Skyrocketed in a matter of hours.
