The player named “Bibo” confirmed that his family was left in shame but did not forget the support Ntshumayelo delivered before his fall from grace.

The former Pirates player from Heilbron further revealed that he helped fund his father’s medical studies.

“They were disappointed but they also know that I did a lot of things that were right,” Ntshamayelo told Masebe Qina.

“I was able to help my dad and today he is a doctor. I was paying for my sister at school, looking after the family, and so on.

“When I turned pro, my dad went to school to do medicine. He is a very strong man. Someone I look up to. 

“I want to be a father like that to my children. He showed me you can do anything, no matter how old you are.  He was 40 when he did medicine,” the SuperSport United academy product added.

Meanwhile, Ntshumayelo, known as “Bibo,” retired at 33 in June 2023 after failing to revive his career at Moroka Swallows and Baroka FC.
