MONEY IS GOOD: Check Out Lovely Pictures Of Josta Dladla And His Beautiful Wife (Photos)

Dladla grew up in Soweto, where he shared a home with his grandmother. A family friend gave him his first pair of Puma Jomo Sono King boots in 1986, and he wore them for the rest of his life. He attended Soweto's Tsugang Primary School, where he learnt to read and write. His father worked in England, and he flew for the first time when he was in Grade 8 in 1995, when he traveled to see him during the December school vacations in England. 

He joined Wits while still in high school in 1999 and wore the available number 21 at the time. As a Wits player, he received R100,000 per month. Dladla made his professional debut on December 19, 1999, against AmaZulu, which finished in a 1–1 tie. Dladla drew the interest of several clubs as a result of his remarkable playmaking abilities, and he was eventually sold to AGF Aarhus at the end of the 2001/02 season. In the two weeks that followed, he made his professional debut, scoring in a 4–3 victory over Viborg to give them their first win in over a month. A fellow countryman, Sibusiso Zuma, also scored for his squad against Esjberg. According to Danish media, Dladla outshone Zuma, and Dladla went on to call Zuma a liar. "What exactly is the fuss about Sibusiso Zuma? I'm far more powerful than he is!" ..... He made his final appearance for Aarhus on May 29, 2004, against the same team that he made his debut against, Viborg FF, and lost 2–0. He joined Mamelodi Sundowns in 2004, where he scored 15 goals in 122 games and helped the club win the SAA Supa8, the Nedbank Cup, and two league titles. On February 7, 2009, he made his professional debut in a 2–1 loss against the Moroka Swallows. On November 29, 2011, he scored his first goal in a 3–0 win over Bidvest Wits, when he made a solo run from the center of the pitch into the box in the 90th minute.
