    Mmmm start off with the Kebble clan, Brett was very entertaining. Couple of Miss SA's. The Southern Sun dude. Yoko Ono in London. The Queen at a Premier of The Dresser in London, useless movie. Will scratch deeper into the brain cells. Got hammered with Pik Botha during the world cup of 1994 in Central Africa. He had been demoted to Minister of Mineral Affairs if I remember what happened. Bejasus the Oom can enjoy his dop.
    Some more here and there.
    Contracted on a add shoot in Moz for Pringles Crisps met some gorgeous model can't remember her name.
    At the end of the day, who cares?

    I once lived in the room opposite Sharon Stone's in the Holiday Inn in Harare ( I am NOT saying anything more -- about rubbing shoulders )
    I'll read no further, we have a winner.

    Dammit I am a movie star. Was in the movie Kill and Kill again. Famous actors of the time Anneline Kriel, James Ryan, Stan Schmidt I mean you can see me for about 2 seconds.

    We were in the Army then. When they needed 250 guys what was easier than calling on the Army. Part of the movie were shot in the Heidelberg Army Gim.

    I can't remember if I ever met a "famous" person.

    I go work, I go home and when holiday I go bush. Don't do socials.

    The only person I ever met who every now and then hits the papers or Huisgenoot, is not someone I am enthusiastic to share the name.

    But I will give one clue. Negative IQ... For starters...

    I have on my phone the numbers of 3 US$ Billionaires. Two of whom are in the Africa top 10 richest.

    Oh, I also have on my phone the numbers of two SA Government ministers.

    Oh, I work in the same building as Trevor Manual...I have shared a couple of how'd you do's with him.

    I forgot. My one colleague is very well known in the mining industry. He often appears as a guest speaker on 702, and of late has been on Carte Blanche a couple of times for his mining insights.
    I would be ashamed to admit that I know any SA Government ministers and there is no way in hell that I will ever save their numbers. Sies man!

    Giving insights or doing interviews on South African radio, tv or for newspapers does not make you famous and its also not very hard to get them.... I do them weekly, and I am very very far from famous. I mostly do them because it's free marketing for my company - just like most other people who do them.

    But back to actual celebs... our marketing manager at work is a ex Kyknet tv show and soapie actress and a pretty one too.

    To bring you back to earth.
    Be honest and answer this:

    Ask any of those celebrities whether they know who you are (by name).
    If they do, then you might have bragging rights - otherwise, no cigar!

    "Do you know who Nelson Mandela was?" Sure I do!
    "Did Nelson Mandela know who you are?"

    I don't idolise any human beings, regardless of what they have achieved.
    I acknowledge and respect their achievements, but that's it.
