JOHANNESBURG – Nkosana Makate was finally free to spend big on Freedom Day.

He invented the "Please Call Me" service, while working at Vodacom.

Now, he is getting ready to cash in after the Constitutional Court ordered that the cellular provider must compensate him.

He says the support he received at home is what kept him going, during his fight against Vodacom.

eNCA reporter Zikhona Tshona caught up with him at home relaxing with his wife and daughters.
