Mika Stefano: I love Marky Mark!!! So, Lunga, what did you win?
Lunga Shabalala: I won a trip for two to New York and the opportunity of representing Calvin Klein underwear SA
Mika Stefano: For two…. Hmmmm…. (Flatters eyes) …lol… Well Done! So, what can we expect from Lunga now?
Lunga Shabalala: Hahahaha … Only BIG things. Gonna try get into some TV and do a lot more modelling.
Mika Stefano: Are you a briefs or boxers type of guy?
Lunga Shabalala: Lol. Wouldn’t you wanna know Mika
Mika Stefano: Yes I would… Okay… Cotton or Silk?
Lunga Shabalala: Can I say both?
Mika Stefano: No, you cant be so good looking and have it both…
Lunga Shabalala: Okay… if I have to choose it’ll have to be cotton.
Mika Stefano: Have you ever worn a G String?
Lunga Shabalala: Lol. Na, I’ve never worn a G string.
Mika Stefano: I am sure we can get a few people who would love to see you in a G String… Lunga Shabalala: (he just continued to laugh…)
Mika Stefano: What is your favorite underwear colour?
Lunga Shabalala: The classic white does it for me but I also wear a lot of black.
Mika Stefano: You are now an underwear model, this means your body has to be in top shape, how often do you workout?
Lunga Shabalala: I’m in the gym about 4 times a week doing a lot of free weights. I try and do my core everyday. During the day I do the small things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
Mika Stefano: Im also gyming now… Summer is around the corner… So what exercises do you do? Where can I find you in the gym?
Lunga Shabalala: Well done Mika… Being healthy is very important. I do all the major muscles so I’d do the Bench Press, Pull ups, Squats, Bicep curls, calf raises, deadlifts. Most importantly for me is the abs so I’ll end every session with ab exercises.
Mika Stefano: Ya, thats the section I wanna work on… The tummy/abs and my bee sting boobies…lol…
Lunga Shabalala: (still laughing…)
Mika Stefano: Im serious… Dunno Why you laughing… Lunga, do you follow a special diet?
Lunga Shabalala: I don’t have a rigid diet but I do watch what I eat and when I eat because half the work is in your diet. I do live an active lifestyle so I’ll have a protein shake in the mornings.
Mika Stefano: Im also drinking the protein shakes. I have the vanilla flavour…
Lunga Shabalala: I would have thought you would have been a chocolate kinda guy…
Mika Stefano: Ha Ha Ha… Now you a comedian… What can we expect from Lunga in the next 5 years…
Lunga Shabalala: I’m gonna finish my studies, but I’m definitely going to get into a lot more modeling and even some TV.
Mika Stefano: You lie… me too… We should start a band…
Lunga Shabalala: (Laughing) Seriously though I can act.
