Johannesburg – Media mogul and author Basetsana Khumalo celebrated another milestone
Her memoir, “Bassie: My Journey of Hope”, is the second-best selling book after Michelle Obama’s “Becoming”.
In celebration of the memoir’s first anniversary, Bassie, as she is affectionately known, took to Instagram this past Friday to thank South Africans for showing her love and support for her book.
Khumalo announced that the book is selling like hot cakes, also revealing that her memoir is the second-best selling book in South Africa.
She said: “Here’s a story I wanted to share with you when your publisher who published Michelle Obama’s book sends you an email and says the book is doing great.
“I just started crying, and really crying tears of gratitude because all I did was just write my story, write my truth.”
The former beauty queen expressed her gratitude to all her supporters, who have bought her book, and hoped that it not only inspires but bring hope to any who may feel discouraged during these challenging times.
“Thank you to every one of you who read the book, who given your reviews and those who’ve taken their time and money to go out there and support Basetsana Kumalo. I don’t take that for granted, may you be blessed a hundred folds,” she added.
