What a time to be alive fam! Mzansi is seriously alive with possibilities and we love that our fellow countrymen are shining the South African flag hella high internationally.
In early 2017, actor Atandwa Kani and his dad, legendary actor John Kani were announced as two of the South African stars who would be starring in 2018’s most-anticipated movie, Marvel film’s, Black Panther.
Later, veteran actor, Connie Chiume was announced as the third South African actor to join the all-black superhero movie with an A-list international cast of stars such as Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett and Michael B. Jordan.
Last night, the three Mzansi stars attended the world premiere of Black Panther in a star-studded red carpet event in Los Angeles. Atandwa, John and Connie dressed in their African best as they joined the rest of the epic movie cast and we’re here for all of the African pride that was on that purple carpet.
Peep the traditional Xhosa outfits the trio rocked on the purple carpet.
Big up to these Mzansi icons for showing the world that Africa is more than capable. Black Panther premiers in South Africa on 16 February 2018.
