Earlier, Briefly News reported that it was celebrations all around as three stunning South African gogos reach 100, 98 and 96 years old. In separate posts shared to the #ImStaying group on Facebook, Millicent Phokoane, Nkami Penyana and Merlize Kock are celebrating their grandmothers' and mothers' birthdays.
Millicent's gogo turned 100, Nkami's mother turned 98 and Merlize's gogo turned 96. Each grandmother looks absolutely stunning in their own way and none of them looks as though they are anywhere near the ages they've turned.
The comments left under the #ImStaying posts were positive and loving.

Her gran even gave her R5 when she brought her a cake to say thank you for making her day special.
