No matter how grown up you are, your relationship with your parents will always shape a part of you. We’ve been asking people to share their memories of their fathers for our Old Spice competition. In return for you sharing a sweet memory with us we’ll give you an awesome Old Spice hamper that should have you feeling like this:
Here is this week’s second winner and their story:
I was raised by a single parent, my mom. I used to play at my neighbours. It was a big family and they treated me like their own child. We would play, take little pots and cook and the father from next door would get us vegetables from his garden to help us in our games. He would also give us eggs from his chickens as well. He would make a fire and call his sons and me around and tell us amazing stories and jokes. We would be warm, and sit around the fire with feelings of laughter and joy. Although he was not my biological father he made me feel like his child. My biological father was not around but I had a father next door.
Congrats to Tseki Dikeledi. Thank you for sharing your memory with us. You win an Old Spice hamper and your name will go to the draw for the R5000.
Over the course of running the competition I’ve had to watch a lot of Old Spice commercials and I think I’m in love with with Isiah Mustafah, also known as the Old Spice Guy so it was cool to see him in a telenovella type set up with Fabio:
Funny right? Happy Weekend! Belief in yoursmellf!
