Taking to social media, the star said it was her dream to own a Ford Wildtrack which is able to navigate difficult terrain.
His major excitement is how she will be able to travel to Limpopo this festive season during the rainy season without difficulty.

Makhadzi once signed a R120 million contract to start a sneaker brand named after her successful album Kokovha but it dismally failled.
The singer failed to promote the Kokovha sneakers after signing a deal with the company.
According to a local publication, Makhadzi’s failure to oblige to the agreement of promoting the sneakers by wearing them to shows and on stage led to a huge loss for the company.
Kicks Sportswear founder and CEO Sammy Mhaule has opened a new store and has further business without the Limpopo-born star.
“I know that I spent a lot of time working on Kicks Kokovha and hoping it would work with Makhadzi as the one promoting this brand,” said Mhaule.
“Yes, Kokovha, which was meant to be hers to work on, is going at half price because I need to get my money back, it’s like they left me to do damage control myself.
“However, I am excited to have also launched Champion X and I believe it will run in the direction I expect it to.”
Kicks Kokovha representative, Nacinda Combrink from Radley Attorneys, said they had since served Makhadzi and Open Mic with rule 35 discovery notices and have not received a response to date.
Makhadzi and the music company aren’t happy with the amount demanded damages.
“They wanted us to pay back their R8.2-million, but all that money for what?” asked Spokesperson for Open Mic and Makhadzi Nkateko Maluleke.
“We do not understand what they want from us, and they rush every explanation through the court and not straight to us. I would say there is still no update from our side so far, because we want to understand, R8.2-million for what?”
