Nyan Nyan presenter Luyanda Potwana has announced that his time as a presenter for the show is Up. “What a journey. What a chapter. What an era. Time may pass – but the MEMORIES will remain forever. And that’s how we end it. This is the END,” he said on a lengthy Instagram post.
Luyanda also spoke about the time when he decided to come to Joburg. He said he had no money and no backup plan. Luyanda said that was one of the bravest decisions he made.
“In 2005, around the Easter Holidays – I took a very brave decision. I took a City to City bus and came to Johannesburg. I had no money, no clear plan, and no plan B. I only had a dream – a dream of being on Television. And boy, what a rollercoaster of a journey it has been…”
He continued to say that it is time for him to close the Johannesburg chapter. He said the city fulfilled his dream of being on television.
“How do I say goodbye to a city that made me who I am today. A city that introduced me to your lounges every Tuesday at 6 pm. Kodwa ke – okungapheli kuyahlola. Nothing really lasts forever.
“This is to the 16 years of faith, disappointments, ups & downs, perseverance, dreams, achievements, fulfillments, history, blessings, grace & completion… I close the Johannesburg chapter a proud man — having fulfilled my dreams.”
Luyanda covered up his post by thanking the Gauteng province. “My head is held high. My kids will know that – daddy dreamt, daddy believed, daddy acted, daddy soldiered-on, and daddy achieved! Thank you Johannesburg! Thank you GP!!”
