About this book:

Putco Mafani has become a household name in South Africa. He overcame not only poverty, but solitary confinement by a brutal government, tribalism, being doubted, a traumatic divorce, and unemployment. Had he not risen above, he would not have come to know, as he writes, ‘the price and prize of greatness’.
Putco, a former deputy principal, 
went on to Umhlobo Wenene FM, where he anchored the biggest breakfast show in the country. He was Kaizer Chiefs PRO. An inspirational South African story.

Readers say

‘Putco has long had a unique voice.’

– Noxolo Grootboom, News anchor


‘A great book narrated in the true spirit of bilingualism.’

– Xolisa Guzula
