I don’t know anyone more full of life than Karabo. She did absolutely everything she wanted to do. She went to every country, stayed at the best hotels, met everybody she wanted to meet, attended parties with world’s fanciest people, became a DJ, loved fiercely & fearlessly. ❤️🕊 pic.twitter.com/4hXNfzqQ4C
