Bi Phakathi has, for years, shared inspirational and heart-warming videos of himself doing good for his community. Each video sees Phakathi come across a person in dire financial situations and showcases how one person can change the life of another by offering a helping hand.

However, while a recent social media campaign has tried to unmask this hero, Phakathi has revealed that he won’t be sharing his identity and promises to let his charitable actions do the talking.

“In my book, a real hero is someone who hides their identity and does good deeds for no sort of recognition,” Phakathi said to IOL when asked why he refuses to unmask himself.

Throughout the years, the Bi Phakathi Facebook page has uploaded thousands of videos which show a man donating money, buying groceries, and even helping to pay the rent of those less fortunate than he is.

He has also paid for makeovers for homeless people, paid university fees for students, and even helped reunite a homeless family.

The masked hero adds: “I have chosen not to reveal myself because it can drive the attention away from the purpose, which is to share good news and inspire people to help other people. If we can do more good as South Africans, then the world will be inspired to uplift the poor too.”

Phakathi says that he is not surprised to see a growing interest by his over one-million Facebook followers to get a deeper look into who he is.

The superhero adds that people should rather spend their time on doing good themselves and be inspired by how much one person can make a difference.
