Percy Tau Is Still Just His Mother’s Boy Despite The Success! The 24 year old is the man of the season and currently on everyone’s lips as far as South African football is concerned.
But to his 64 year old mother, Elizabeth Tau, he’s still just one of his eight children. Tau recently won three Awards at the PSL Awards and is rumored to be moving overseas next season. Here’s what his mother told Sowetan Live after the Awards ceremony.
“Percy was a good boy growing up. He never bothered me. He liked to do things quietly, to this day that is his character. He would just say ‘mama don’t worry, I’ll take care of you’,” the emotional proud mom shared.
She went on to reveal that Tau bought her a big house which she still can’t believe is hers. “Now Percy is taking care of us. He bought me a very big house and every day when I wake up I cannot believe it, considering where we come from,” she said.
On her son’s possible Europe move, the proud mom said, “I gave him my blessings. I don’t know the name of the team, but wherever he goes, I told him I will come visit. I will be flying for the first time soon. I have never been in a plane.”
