THERE is nothing sexier than a guy with a great swagger. He is attractive, more relaxed, more at ease and more ready to laugh, yet he also seems more alert, more in tune and more sure of himself.

Urbandictionary.com defines "swagger" as "How one presents oneself to the world" or "A person's style - the way they walk, talk, dress."

To possess this a man has to move with confidence and sophistication and has to exude a high level of coolness without even trying.

It is not given, it is earned, and it is not an emotion but a characteristic. It can be had by all, but is achieved by few. It's not for sale. It goes beyond confidence but is not arrogance.

I have compiled a list of men I think possess this:

Jacob Zuma

Sure it takes a little bit of swagger to hold your own and stand tall next to the Queen of England amid bad publicity. The smart outfits he wore when he met the queen last week won him a place in the swagger stakes. And he handled himself with a Shaka Zulu swag!

Tony Yengeni

He's second on my list based on his appearance on red carpets, at parties and fashion events. That guy is stylish, full stop. He keeps it simple and clean, but looking at him you can tell he has creative flair.

Julius Malema

Love him or loathe him, Malema never worries about trying to impress, which is why his swag is so unique. Everything about him screams confidence, power and African sexuality. From his voice to his style, Malema doesn't have time to survey everyone he passes and find out if they all approve. That is swagger right there.

Sizwe Dhlomo

Though he is arrogant and you would like to give him a big slap, this guy drips swag in gallons. He is cute, he dresses well and, boy, he knows what he's all about.

Irvin Khoza

Being the chairman of a big soccer club must have its benefits because Khoza has that gangster-leader swagger. And the money to back it.

Paul Mashatile

He knows how to control his power. He dresses well and carries himself in a sexy way. He's always dressed for the occasion in slacks and a button-down or in a stylish suit.

Bheki Cele

Here's a guy with real street swag. He is not afraid to step out of his comfort zone to make a statement and doesn't try to blend in with others. He stands for his shit. Now that's what I call swag.

Pastor Musa Sono

He is senior pastor at the Grace Bible Church and dresses like he stepped right out of GQ magazine. The first day I saw this man of God I could tell he had extreme swagger about him, and has the fashion game on deck. Or is it the glory?

Luthuli Dlamini

His swag screams "hug me!" He has an accent to die for, he's macho and the best part is he doesn't seem as if he's trying too hard.

Siphiwe Nyanda

It's the aura of power that's attractive. His calmness is so grounded and he just oozes balance.

Kgalema Motlanthe

This man is composed, calm and collected. He is not fazed by anything. When he was president the position did not go to his head.

Phuthuma Nhleko

The outgoing MTN CEO is handsome and intelligent and goes around as if he does'nt know it.

Thulani Gcabashe

The former Eskom CEO is very smooth and polished. He's very strong but not domineering. That's swag, if you ask me.

Sizwe Ntsaluba

Though he does not rank high in the looks stakes, he still has it. He speaks well and the fact that he is the first black banker in the country makes him a clear draw card.

Hlomla Dandala

Say what you will about his father, but the son has swag. He looks good, knows his politics and yet he is streetwise.
