Nominees for the 2015 7th Feather Awards have been unveiled and yes, some omissions are quite intriguing.
They ‘feather-down’ on November 12 at down town Jozi -The City Hall. And it’s per invite ONLY!
Due its’ growth the awards has partnered with The Other Foundation LGBTI activists from different parts of the continent, one of whom will be the recipient of the inaugural African Feather of the Year Award.
Surprises, in that Cassper Nyovest has been omitted in the Musician of the Year category, but me thinks he’s way too busy with other stuff. So he won’t be bothered.
But seeing him in the same room as AKA, Ricky Rick that would have been some way too special, stru!
Cutest Couple also does not feature former Banyana star Portia Modise and partner. What happened?
Here are the nominees:
Best Styled Female
