Radio and TV personality Shirley Tibilla, popularly known as Cookie Tee, switched profession for a moment as she took to the streets to hawk mangoes.
The ‘Starr Drive’ show co-host was seen in a video which has since gone viral on social media, selling mangoes in traffic on the Ring Road near the Starr FM building.
“Life has been difficult due to the coronavirus pandemic,” she said in the 3 minutes video which has gone viral. “So, I’m just trying to make ends meet to feed myself and my family.”
She said aside from TV and radio, this is what she does but adds a little bit of swag to it.
“Sometimes, after TV and radio, this is what I do, but I add a bit of swag to it. Because the movement is better than apartheid.”
Cookie later revealed that it was a prank and that she wanted to have the experience.
“I just had a little time. I wanted to experience what people who are broke go through every day.”
