Media personality Thami Dish shared the announcement of the Feather Awards with a caption that explained the core of the event. He said:
"This year's nominees are a reflection of how far we have come as the queer community. We are proud of all the nominees, queer and those who aren't queer, but are always holding the torch next to us fighting for the liberation of the LGBTIQA+ community."
High roller in Dubai: Khanyi Mbau gets a luxurious welcome, Cartier gift and Maybach V Class pick up
Briefly News previously reported Khanyi Mbau has made it known that all roads lead to Dubai. The socialite posted her return trip to the city where she left her boyfriend Kudzai Mushonga high and dry. To make up for the last time, Kudzai welcomed her like the princess that she is.
After the video of her singing the catchy song "shiya indoda eDubai" went viral, many were certain that things between the Khanyi and Kudzai would be over. After CityPress reported that an emotional Kudzai said that his own mother was convincing him to leave Khanyi, reconciliation did not seem in sight for the couple.
Khanyi and Kudzai have beaten all odds and TimesLive reports that they looked happy as ever when Khanyi arrived in Dubai. The businessman made sure to give his girlfriend the kind of welcome that would make her never want to leave again.
The luxury shower began with an undisclosed gift from Cartier, followed by a bouquet of red roses and of course, Khanyi needed the perfect airport pick up ride to top off. So the couple rode off in a Maybach V Class that as Kudzai says, "You've never seen."
