Don’t give up, darling
DEAR Akhumzi Jezile
Relevance and longevity are tough to come by here in Egoliwood trust me, I know.
And since acting in a forgettable drama has not got you much attention, Shwa can imagine how hungry you were for the Feather Awards’ Social Butterfly win.
However, doing a Kanye lite on Bujy when he trumped you to it was not only desperate but extremely awkward for you.
See, darling, when you’re gonna pull a Yeezus stunt, you’d better have the vocab to back it up. Wait, Imma let you finish… You instead stood there like a
The Link presenter Lerato Kgyanyago donned a RuPaul-inspired mane matched with what looked like a see-through gown and undies. All that exposed booty and boobs was more Lollipop Lounge than red carpet sexy, but hey a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do when faced with stiff drag queen competition.
Girl-about-town Pearl Thusi unveiled her new braids when she collected her Fag Hag Award. You’re totally channeling Solange Knowles and looking fabulara doing it, doll!
Ladies who kept it classy with their puppies were upcoming singer Nizreen and actress Zakeeya Patel. The two were the belles with their cute buns to finish off the toned-down looks.
Shwa spotted Role Model nominee Zoleka Mandela rocking what appears to be a baby bump in a wedding dress-inspired ballgown. It was a bit of a mission trying not to step on her train as she waltzed in front in the arms of her man. Maybe she had the wedding march playing in her head.
Oh, but can we take a moment to observe Gauteng s cheeky premier Nomvula Mokonyane? Mama Action took home the Diva of the Year Award mute giving Bujy a sad imitation of a glare.
And, being in a Doctor Malinga orange suit didn’t up your game either.
You just looked like you’re missing a hag on your arm instead of an award in your hand.
Shwa advises that you sit at home, meditate on this and maybe come back stronger for the award next year. Failing that, just debut a hot underwear model (hey, there’s Lunga Tshabalala!) and declare him your lover. Now, Shwa isn’t suggesting in anyway that you or Lunga bat for that team, but that at least ought to get you the column inches and an interview on Vuzu. Thank me later! XOXO, Shwashwi
