And the winner is
The 10th annual gsport Awards was one of the more dazzling women’s sporting events on the calendar. Held at the Wanderers Club on Friday night, it was a classy, sophisticated event. Lira was the opening act for the night and her soulful voice had the women singing along at the top of their voices – trust me, they were loud. Next time ladies, please resist the urge to sing along.
The women in sports media really know how to clean up nicely, and the athletes weren’t so bad either. Middle-distance athlete Mapaseka Makhanya’s sheer dress was daring and she definitely brought sexy back.
Minister of Sports and Recreation Fikile Mbalula and his wife, Nozuko, were accompanied by Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba and his glamorous spouse, Nomachule.
Mbalula was his usual hyperactive self and was so excited he vowed to include the gsport Awards into his department’s budget next year.
It was an event that called for good wine and if you were not drinking it that night, people looked at you askance. After all, who comes to a glitzy event and drinks ciders?
Gsport founder Kass Naidoo made her mark by hosting a great awards evening this year.
The afterparty was held at the venue. Athletes know how to get down and have the extra energy and fitness to do just that. I just couldn’t compete.
Who would have thought that women in sports could master the red carpet so well? I got quite a few fashion tips on the night for next year’s awards ceremony. It’s safe to say that I’m ready.
SO WHO WON?
