Moms cel­e­brated at event

The Star Late Edition - - NEWS - STAFF REPORTER

MISS Soweto, Bu­sisiwe Mmotla, won’t let any mo­ment pass to cel­e­brate her mother.

At an all-white brunch to hon­our the he­roes, Mmotla said she was grate­ful to spend the day with women who had raised a na­tion.

“Be­ing at this event is so in­spir­ing. White Star and Move! put to­gether an amaz­ing event and we’re grate­ful for the plat­form to cel­e­brate our moth­ers – an op­por­tu­nity to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion for their love and sac­ri­fices,” Mmotla said.

The main speak­ers for the day were mag­a­zine ed­i­tor, Nonzwakati Cekete, ra­dio per­son­al­ity Dudu “Lady D” Khoza and Mmotla, who spoke about the roles that their moth­ers and grand­moth­ers had played in their

lives, as well as their own ex­pe­ri­ences of moth­er­hood.

Also in at­ten­dance were ac­tresses Manaka Ranaka and Thandy Mat­laila, and a few ex-hold­ers of the crown. Guests were ac­com­pa­nied by the mother fig­ure in their lives, while Jazz artist and bud­ding DJ, Wanda Baloyi, was on the decks en­ter­tain­ing.

“I’m so grate­ful for the

op­por­tu­nity to at­tend this event with my aunt who took me un­der her wing when I first came to Jo­han­nes­burg 10 years ago. She’s been a sec­ond mother to me and has sup­ported me through every­thing. Spend­ing the day with her and her idol Dudu Khoza means every­thing to me. I’ll cher­ish this mem­ory,” Nol­wazi Mag­ula, who won tick­ets to at­tend the event, said.

“Mother’s Day is im­por­tant to the White Star brand be­cause the ma­jor­ity of our con­sumer base are moms. We part­nered with Move! mag­a­zine to cre­ate a plat­form to show our love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for them. We’re happy to have given our con­sumers and Move! read­ers a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence with their loved ones and favourite celebri­ties,” White Star mar­ket­ing man­ager Mokhele Makhothi said.

My aunt’s been like a sec­ond mom to me. She sup­ported me through­out
