Ayanda on her journey on Top Billing:
“It is something that I have been dreaming about. I cannot believe that it’s happening. It’s a miracle and a blessing that something you dream about actually turns into reality. This is not only a big thing to me but for my family – through me they can see that dreams do become real.”
