What’s the story? 

The Bucs star recently shared details about his life, journey in the beautiful game and how he grew up in Mzimhlope. Speaking to Kasi Flavour, the Bucs star mentioned how he grew up in the football culture in Soweto and that subsequently, his love for the game progressed to a point where he wanted to pursue a career in football.

Humble Beginnings

Figo, as he is known fondly, mentioned how he worked at Emperors Palace as a waiter, with the salary not being enough to support his family.

He went on to mention that he signed a contract with Roses United in the NFD and helped the club whenever he was needed, given that they were shorthanded at the time.


In a heartwarming account, Mntambo recalled the joy of his family when he once returned home with some money and how it brought joy into their home.

Rejoicing With His Family

“I remember coming back home with a contract valued at R10 000 and my family was so happy, it was like we won the lottery. Because that’s how much that meant to my family and me. Then after that Roses United went on to Jomo Cosmos and then back to the NFD.”


“I signed at Chippa United and then later, I found myself at Orlando Pirates. Like I said, “What’s meant for you will always find you. I don’t think I’m at Pirates by fluke or luck. I am there because I am meant to be there. It was written in the stars, “ Figo said as quoted on the Kasi Flavour website.

Nonetheless, Mntambo took the time to pose in some old school inspired Pirates apparel, in front of a humble home painted in the Orlando Pirates colours.
