Zodwa Wabantu and Skolopad, no doubt, stole the show at the 9th Annual Feather Awards last night. While Zodwa left us shook with her stunts for our cameras, Skolopad also didn’t disappoint in the shock factor department.
The theme for the fun, LGBTI advocating awards, was “Aluta Continua, The Struggle Continues”, which we found very fitting because, man did the fashion struggle continue on that red carpet!
The fashion shocker of the night was upcoming singer and entertainer, Skolopad, real name, Nonhlanhla Qwabe. The socialite, who has never been shy to showcase it all at previous red carpet events, won the night when she came dressed in wors. Before we knew it, the Mzimba penner was trending and social media in a frenzy.
The barely there mini PVC dress featured wors, which covered Skolopad’s breasts and nether regions. Her derriere was, thankfully, safely tucked away under a white half lace train. While we were still shook, the singer accessorised with a bag of charcoal and used this as her purse. If that’s not legendary, then we don’t know what is! Here’s how tweeps reacted:

Almost sensing that the country was puzzled and completely blown away by her creativity, the entertainer decided to take us out our misery and explained what her dress represented and how the wors idea came about.
We don’t know about you but this was definitely our wors dressed for the night – albeit entertaining and we thank you for that Skolopad. What do you think, though? Do share your thoughts with us.
Mampho Returns to Mzansi with insights into Japan
Mampho Brescia comes back to South Africa with insight into Japan.
In an effort to strengthen ties and grow mutual understanding between the two countries, the Japanese government invited South African actress, Mampho Brescia to be a representative on a week-long visit to the land of the rising sun.
During her visit, Brescia met with some of the country’s political and social development leaders where the agenda of speeding up social justice especially for women was discussed, along with Japan’s foreign policy on Africa’s engagement.
She also experienced a variety of Japanese culture, arguably one of the most fascinating cultures in the world.
Both nations, South Africa and Japan have a futuristic outlook, where they have mutual goals of creating a free and fair society where all their people have rights, and social justice. Both governments wish to advance the well-being of their citizens, and that is something that is laudable
She said that she was deeply honoured that the Japanese government had chosen her to act as a global citizen in bridging the cultural and political gap between South Africa and Japan.
Brescia, who studied cultural exchange and the politics of Japan as an exchange student in the past in Japan, said the recent visit back to Japan was both spiritually and culturally fulfilling.
In short, I took away so many lessons from Japan this time. I’d jump at the opportunity of going back there again
