It's a fact that when a person turns 18, its a big deal. Here in South Africa, you get the honour of casting your vote in the elections, because you are now considered to be an adult. You also qualify to be at the legal driving age.
Owami Mafokate, who is the daughter of muso, Arthur Mafokate, celebrated her 18th birthday on Friday. Her family woke very early to start the birthday celebrations yesterday, with Arthur sharing snaps and a birthday shout out to his daughter on social media. To mark the special occasion, Owami was gifted a brand new whip, a Minnie Cooper.
Owami was lost for words when she posted the snap of her with her new whip on her birthday. She captioned the pic with just emojis. See her post below:
Owami's snap has been trending on Instagram since she shared the post. Many of her music fans, including some of Mzansi celebs congratulated the young DJ on her new whip.
Here are a few messages from her post:
ayandancwane: "Congratulations nana and happiest birthday ❤️"
djtira: "Congrats "
hazel_mposwa: "Congratulations baby❤"
na_tasha8034: "wow congratulations dear❤"
Even singer, Chomee, and her father, Arthur Mafokate shared the Instagram:
Her father, Arthur, said it was good to see Owami smile.
Just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Arthur Mafokate is one celeb who is a dedicated and super proud father. He recently went to watch his daughter Owami compete in an Inter High Dance Competition and overflowed with pride.
Despite having gone through a pretty stressful and trying time, one thing Arthur never compromised on was his children. Briefly.co.za knows that Arthur never misses a single one of Owami’s shows.
Even though Arthur has other children whom he loves dearly, Owami’s clearly the apple of his eye, as she is following in his footsteps to excel in the music industry.
