"Our final gift handover for #PitsowaLeboga had to be big. @TheRealPitso requested we honour the football legend, Chairman Jomo Sono of Jomo Cosmos F.C. Mr Sono discovered @TheRealPitso's talent when he played as a young man.

"Together with Mr Stanley Tshabalala, @TheRealPitso’s professional football career was launched. This is the epitome of humble beginnings. Coach Pitso also thanked Mr Sono for his contribution to football. He is known for identifying talented players and developing them.

"I don't know where my life would be had I not been identified by Mr Sono" @TheRealPitso. The photo in the frame is the 1982 Jomo Cosmos team which was the only Cosmos team that won the PSL (NSL). Playing alongside Mr Sono is an honor for @TheRealPitso. Truly, Pitso wa leboga."
