Mi Casa’s Mo-T launches cancer awareness project
Mo-T, whose real name is Moshe Kgasoane, says the aim of the initiative is to educate men around cancer-related issues.
The charismatic hornblower says he was inspired to create the Diphala Foundation after losing heroes, friends, and his own father to cancer.
His father, Lehlara Banza Samson Kgasoane, affectionately known as Banza, succumbed to cancer in 2015. He was the lead trumpeter for the legendary band Mango Groove.
Mo-T says his foundation will focus primarily on cancer in men, promoting testing and early detection as well as leading a healthy lifestyle.
