ASSISTANT: Musician Jeremy Olivier gives the seller Big Issue his car


a) A man selling Big Issue magazines on the windy streets of Cape Town was surprised by a comforting gesture from local musician Jeremy Olivier and his family.

The Oliviers have known Bongani Pholo for many years, as they often greet when they pass him on the street in Noordhoek.

Olivier's wife, Nicole, told News24 that she promised Pholo the car five years ago after he showed interest in it.

"Last Friday we got a new car thanks to our sponsors from Holland and the next day we delivered the old car to Bongani," she said.

Pholo was ecstatic about his new car, but admitted that he thought they would only offer him a discount on the vehicle.

"I never thought about getting the car for free," he said.

A donor who wants to remain anonymous has volunteered to help Bongani with insurance for a year, added Jeremy Olivier.

Olivier gained prominence in the local music scene when he was runner-up in the debut season The voice SA.
