ACTOR Sthembiso ‘SK’ Khoza had a lot to be grateful for apart from the fact that he is alive despite being in hospital.

The heartthrob, who plays Shaka in Mzansi Magic’s The Queen, posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed with a woman whom he referred to as his partner. 

Even though he didn’t delve deeper into reasons he was in hospital, he thanked the woman beside him for choosing to spend the rest of her life with him.

In the Instagram post, the star thanks her for always being there for him through thick and thin and for putting up with him. 

The affection post reads: I want to thank you for choosing to spend the rest of your life with me. Being with you has been a wonderful blessing. I know that I’m far from perfect, but I want to thank you for putting up with me. Thank you for loving me despite my shortcomings and my imperfections. Thank you for your patience, and for your constant encouragement. Last I remember was when we Face Time at 4am and I was telling you how I was in pain and wishing I was home. Waking up and finding you right next to me was priceless. You still made it a point to spend time with me. I could go on and on about all the things I am thankful for, but I just want you to know how thankful I am that I have a life partner as amazing as you”.
