“There is no greater feeling in this world than to be called a father. It’s everyone’s wish to have people who can call you dad and l’m grateful to God for blessing me with my boys. And l want to wish everyone a happy Father’s Day and my encouragement is that let’s be good role models to our children for they are the future. To Keith and Khameel l want you to always know that daddy loves you and will always be there for you all the way.”

“Dad, l look at you and l know love, l look away and l know nothing
To this day, I still believe my first word i ever spoke was daddy.
“Giggling and clapping, my eyes brimming with innocence, at that very tender age, l had felt your love. A lot of people ask for a father figure and a male role model in their loves but l am proud to say you have been my hero since you held my hand for the first time. I can never speak of sincere love without mentioning your name
“I can never speak of sheer talent without mentioning your name
I can never speak of power without mentioning your name especially when you play the double role, a mother and a father
That is why i am proud to call you Dad
I look into the mirror daddy, look into my eyes and i see you
“Every time I walk towards the podium accepting an award, it feels familiar, like i have done it before
Because you have shown me the way already Daddy
Love conquers all and I believe you have already conquered

US-based goalkeeper Tatenda Mkuruva said:
“Fatherhood is something that is fun and l’ve been enjoying the process since day 1. “Unfortunately l couldn’t spend the day with my daughter Amoriel or my dad because of the distance, l’m in America. But she called to wish me a happy day and l also called my dad. I want to wish every father a happy day and my advice is keep on being the best dads to your children.”

Zimbabwe international midfielder Talent Chawapiwa said fatherhood comes with commitment.
“To me fatherhood is commitment, provider, sacrifice and unconditional love for your kids. I’m just happy that l have the privilege of being call a dad by my son O’Neil. He is too young to understand the day but l think he will definitely do something for me in the few years to come.”

Warriors and Baroka goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze said fatherhood makes a man complete.
“Fatherhood is something that makes one complete. And l’m grateful to be a dad to my two kids. I just want to wish a happy Father’s Day to everyone gentlemen out there. May you be a good example to your kids.”
