Thuso Mbedu is gearing up to bag her first ever Emmy award, but before she leaves SA, her friends and family wanted to give her a proper send-off.
The actress was nominated for an Emmy in 2017, but sadly she missed out. Hopefully this will be the year that she brings home the gold.
Thuso is in the running for Best Actress and she is going up against some stiff competition with actresses hailing from Germany, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
Daily Sun reports that Thuso’s friends and family all put together a special farewell lunch so they could all spend time with her before she leaves to attend the awards ceremony.
Briefly.co.za learned that some of Thuso’s co-stars also joined in on the day’s festivities such as Nthathi Moshesh, who she works with on the set of ‘Saints and Sinners’ as well as her bestie, Makgotso M.
The lunch was hosted at the luxurious Palazzo Hotel in Johannesburg and the whole affair had a casual elegance to it.
While they dined, Thuso and her guests were treated to some lovely goodies and not to mention some delicious food!
