When i look back at my career i feel blessed, i feel blessed because its a dream of every youngster to play for a team like Orlando Pirates, for me joining Pirates at such a young age was a blessing not a curse.
At the tender age of 16 i was already playing for Pirates first team for me that's a blessing.I can say it was all also a curse in the sense that i was too young as much as i have talent. I had to learn a lot of things fast and be matured said Mahlonoko.
The fame and attention from the media distracted me will be honest but I'm very lucky because i have a very good experience management. I know as long as i am with them and my father i will always get the support i need.
