It’s a Sunday afternoon and we are parked next to the News Café at the Village waiting for Losika ‘Luzboy’ Seboni so we can go and have a chat at his home.
Unlike before where you would expect him to be coming from a bar to do away with the bhabhalazi from previous night of drinking and dancing he is actually coming from church. Yes the former socialite and party animal has turned over a new leaf.
Formally dressed and putting on a tie he finally arrives with his Navara and leads the way home where we seat at the veranda to chat the afternoon away.
“Yes I am from church, I know this might come as a surprise to many people who know the kind of a person I was but the old Losika who used to party like there is no tomorrow and always after bling bling is gone. I have given my life to Jehovah and will now spend my days perfecting my relationship with Him.”
Luzboy as he is commonly known entered the public scene almost a decade ago when he joined the then newly established Yarona Fm as an on air personality or DJ as they are normally called though he prefers the former.
He rocked the airwaves and became a household name in the country and still commands a following through his one-hour programme Luzboy’s Old Skool which he co-hosts with famous Daisy Bird and airs every Friday between 2 and 3pm.
“I found fame and money at a young age and started behaving badly. My life was all about parties, alcohol and showing off. I believed in a high life and lived it but all that is a thing of the past,’’ said 34-year old Losika adding, “I really have been there and done that”.
And after seeing it all in the life of bling and having been in the newspapers and limelight for wrong reasons, Luzboy finally decided to follow in his wife footsteps.
“For years my wife who we have been married for almost 10 years was trying to show me the right path to follow but I never took heed of what she was saying though deep down I knew the change was inevitable.”
Eventually last year he followed in his wife footsteps, who is a member of the Jehovah’s Witness, to lead his life as prescribed in the Bible.
“I have bible lessons every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and on Thursday I actually do the lessons from home. I have brought Jehovah into my life so he can help me stabilize it and to make sure that I spend my days serving him. I am also now spending quality time with my family something which I never did before he said.
He also paid tribute to his wife who he said without her it would have been impossible to be a changed man.
“She wanted to mould me and put me on the right track the very first day that we met 15 years ago but I guess it was not time yet. Now I have found my new life and I am loving it,’’ said the ever cheerful Luzboy adding that it’s a pity that people will not get to see his beautiful wife in the paper as she is media shy.
Luzboy is a proud father two children, Summer (6) and Reejay (4) having been married to wife Maria for almost 10 years.
“When I am away from radio and my company (Footprints Advertising) I make sure that I give my family all the attention it deserves. Once in a while I prepare a good meal for my family and I have no doubt that I am now a good husband and father,’’ he said with confidence and a big smile on his face.
And as if to prove his father right Reejay who was asleep in the lounge since he was not feeling well suddenly woke up and went straight to him to seek comfort and assurance that he will be fine soon.
