Awards cer­e­mony sets off booby trap

Sunday World - - Shwashwi -

NEVER mind rain­ing men, it was rain­ing boobs and skin at the Feather Awards on Thurs­day evening some­thing Shwa would set­tle for any day over the ghastly rain­storm that spoilt our Wed­nes­day.

The flam­boy­ant awards cer­tainly brought out the wild side in celebri­ties an op­por­tu­nity some saw to set their pup­pies free it seems. South Africa’s ris­ing It Girl” Nomzamo Mbatha fresh from bag­ging a Drum Award last week took home the Hot Chick of the Year Award. But it was her milk­shake jig on stage that brought the boys and some girls to a stand­ing ova­tion and scream­ing frenzy. Those pup­pies were sure fight­ing for their free­dom from her eye-pop­ping leop­ard print num­ber.

ac­tress Khanya Mkhangisa’s black lace num­ber left very lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion. And while such high fash­ion may work on a stat­uesque model, the small frame was just swal­lowed by the dress. Dar­ling, Shwa thinks you are try­ing way too hard. Sexy should be easy, not forced. and was a sport enough to come up to the stage to ac­cept it legs and cleav­age galore. High five, ghetto queen!

Oh, Siphokazi Jan­uary is start­ing to shine in the fash­ion stakes. Loved the lemon floor sweeper with green gems she was wear­ing. Keep it up girl.

Ta­mara Dey sealed her sta­tus as the orig­i­nal fag hag when she took to the stage in a Spice Girl-meets-Lady Gaga-crosses-Nicki Mi­naj mash-up per­for­mance. Her span­dex onesie gave Shwa night­mares of camel toe while her backup dancers twiggy men in Katy Perry wigs and heels proved they could never be Calvin Klein un­der­wear mod­els. At least they were hav­ing fun while show­ing their short­com­ings.

MCs Stoan Seate and Lalla Hi­rayama had sweet chem­istry on stage. Shwa loved Lalla’s seven cos­tume changes cour­tesy of David Tlale, but where did she go af­ter the show?

The most dramatic per­for­mance of the night was Brenda Ntambo, Them­bisile Ntaka and Kelly Khu­malo’s trib­ute to mem­bers of the LGBT com­mu­nity who had fallen vic­tim to hate crime. Their ren­di­tion of Michael Jack­son’s Earth Song was so stir­ring, the crowd called for an en­core. When Kelly came out rub­bing her tummy un­der the or­ange jacket, Shwa thought she was go­ing to pull a Bey­oncé at the VMAs on us. The ladies put on a hel­luva per­for­mance, Them­bisile is our very own Jen­nifer Hud­son.

Oh, Bujy Bikwa won So­cialite of the Year and went to pains to prove he de­serves it later on by danc­ing all night while us­ing the vo­lu­mi­nous tent he was wear­ing as a prop.
