Radio Personality Lucky Du Plessis Details Heartwarming Adoption Story

East Coast Radio personality and DJ Lucky Du Plessis tugged on social media’s heartstrings when he took to social media to share his adoption story and how a family who loved him took him in and ultimately changed his life.

Lucky shared how he believed his guardians when he was young were his biological parents and revealed that he, until today, doesn’t know his official birth date.

As he shares his story, Lucky sets the scene as he details how his caretaker at the time enrolled him in Florida Afrikaans Primary School because he could only speak Afrikaans, and, therefore, had to be enrolled in an Afrikaans school. The DJ adds that the school was filled with white pupils and he had a hard time making friends because of his race. However, he quickly made friends with a boy named Charl – and his life changed forever.

“I met my now brother Charl at school, he was 6, and I was 5, he was the only Afrikaans kid who wanted to be friends with me in the entire Afrikaans school, a few years later his parents decided to adopt me. They looked after me for many years before they adopted me; the person I stayed with was a drug addict and alcohol abuser,” Lucky detailed in a lengthy post on Twitter.

Charl’s monther, Mariki Du Plessis, found herself taking Lucky home quite often after school because of her son’s budding friendship with the presenter. Lucky lived in a single room outside the house that his father was restoring. There was no electricity, although there was running water. The two people Lucky believed to be his parents and himself shared this room.

Lucky soon crept into the heart of the Du Plessis family and when taking part in a school production, Lucky stayed over at the Du Plessis family and never really left after that. At first, Marikie took Lucky home on Fridays, but he stayed with the family from Monday evening onward. His mother preferred this arrangement – she had lost her job, and the building foreman was not earning money.

Lucky was eventually adopted by the Du Plessis family and his life changed forever.
