Feather Awards looks for votes

Main Topix: Savita Mbuli And Mandla Mandela - Terry Pheto And Zoleka Mandela
Feather Awards Looks For VotesTerry Pheto is up for the Feather Awards role model of the year award. Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane and Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele have been both nominated under the diva extraordinaire of the year category for the fifth annual Feather Awards. Announced yesterday, the awards introduced two new categories this year, the Media Award which will honour two TV dramas, After 9 and Intersexions as well as the online site and Mamba Online for their contribution in telling genuine stories about the gay and lesbian community. The Feather Awards celebrates public figures that the gay community find inspiring, amusing, or just plain scandalous, with wacky categories such as drama queen of the year and fag hag of the year, coupled with the role model of the year and musician of the year awards. For the first time, the public can participate in the voting system in categories such as the drama queen, which interestingly sees the likes of Savita Mbuli and Mandla Mandela pitted against each other. The Diva extraordinaire category, said Kotlolo, has a particularly political slant this...

Social - Kelly Khumalo's swan song, a cheeky diamond and a bad hair day

Main Topix: Mdoda And Maps Maponyane - Feather Awards
Predictably, there were no feathers at the launch of the Feather Awards this week. Instead, there was a cheeky pink “diamond” – on the awards’ new-look trophy. The dress code of choice at yesterday’s brunch was laid back with jeans and T-shirts. This is the fifth installation of the irreverent awards that honour celebrities found to be inspirational and scandalous by the gay and lesbian community. Who would have guessed that when the controversy-prone Kelly Khumalo emotionally sang My Journey she meant it would be to the police station? After her performance, Khumalo and her dancer sister, Zandi, handed themselves over to the police in Hillbrow where she was wanted for a case of assault. I could have died and gone to heaven after I got a tight squeeze and peck on the cheek from man-about-town Maps Maponyane. The man who single-handedly put cool into geeky with his Clark Kent spectacles is a nominee for the hunk of the year and best-styled male awards, and it really is not hard to see why. Anele Mdoda braved a bad hair day...

Guptas up for Drama Queens 2013

Main Topix: Feather Awards - Drama Queen
Ajay and Atul Gupta during an interview with City Press. It’s that naughty time of the year again – when the LGBTI community announces its nominations for the somewhat over-the-top Feather Awards. There were cheers and “whoops” this morning at the Emoyeni Conference Centre in Parktown, Joburg, when the politically connected Gupta family was named as a hot contender for Drama Queen of the Year. In a category open to public voting for the first time, they’ll be going head-to-head with Mandla Mandela and Savita Mbuli to lift the most-talked-about Feather of them all. It’s doubtful the winners of the category will put in an appearance, but if they did, they would receive the newly designed statuette – a giant diamond. Also eliciting a rowdy reaction was the announcement that politician Mamphela Ramphele is up against fashion designer David Tlale for Diva Extraordinaire of the Year. Launched in 2009, the Feather Awards are billed as “an out, loud and proud celebration of individuals that inspire the gay and lesbian community”. Not just drama queens and divas, of course, but also...

Main Topix: Mbulis And Vuyo - Nelisiwe Mbuli
Savita Mbuli apparently does not see eye to eye with her late husband’s sister. All is not well in the family of late TV star Vuyo Mbuli after his sister failed to attend a family cleansing ceremony last weekend. In an apparent snub, Nelisiwe Mbuli, who works in the office of the group chief executive of the SABC, did not attend the ritual held at the Mbulis’ multimillion-rand Houghton home last Sunday morning. During the ceremony, the Mbulis and Vuyo’s widow Savita performed rituals to cleanse her and rid the family of any bad omens his death may have brought them. The ritual also marks the end of their mourning period. Shortly before his death, Savita moved back into their marital home. And after she was widowed, Savita told City Press that she and Vuyo were on the verge of reconciling when he died....
