Rapper, Anatii is one of the most private personalities we have in our local entertainment industry.
So when he recently opened up about a rather private and painful part of his life, fans were not only shocked but found that it made the rapper that much more relatable.
The Thixo Onofefe hit-maker whose real name is Anathi Bhongo Mnyango, shared a personal message to his late father.
“I miss you tata. Can’t believe it’s been 11 years. I cherish every single moment we had,” he said.
The short message was accompanied by a picture of his late dad who looked very much like a suave, older version of Anatii.

Anatii’s dad passed away in 2008 after losing his battle with cancer.
The rapper was so emotional, he woke up the next day and tweeted: “F**K CANCER”.
The rapper’s revelation inspired his fans to open up about their experiences with the disease.
Countless people have shared stories of their own encounters with cancer but others have shared heartbreaking stories of losing their loved ones to it.
