The Curse of Teko Modise

by Nikolaos Kirkinis | 01 October 2017
Category: Sports Biography
Synopsis
Teko 'the General' Modise is one of the best footballers South Africa has ever produced. But life wasn't always kind. At eight years old, Teko was kicked out of his home for the very thing that would catapult him to stardom - football. After a series of contractual battles that saw him passed from team to team in Limpopo, he got his big break when he was signed to SuperSport United, a premier-league team. At the height of his career he played for the Orlando Pirates, becoming the superstar of South African football. His downward spiral came when he went through a messy and public divorce and developed a nasty drinking habit. It was at this stage that Teko was approached by a powerful medicine man, a king from the Congo. This story tells it all, from poverty to fame, from love to divorce. It is the story of a fatherless father trying to make sense of parenthood and a man who never had money trying to make sense of an abundance of wealth and the evils it brings, all the while maintaining his status as the greatest South African footballer of the modern era.
