Bonang, Black Coffee & Kim Kardashian: see what your fave celebs got up to this weekend
This past weekend saw many people celebrating Mother’s Day under lockdown.
With spa dates and lunch at your mother’s favourite restaurant being out of the picture, this was indeed a Mother’s Day with a twist.
Staying at home continues to be the mandate, and most aspects of life continue to happen virtually, even for our celebs.
Here in Mzansi, artists used their craft to bring about positive change and various celebs took to social media to appreciate their mothers.
Further abroad, the mood was just as celebratory. Mother’s Day was not the only special occasion, as the birthday of a bundle of joy was also celebrated.
This lockdown period has seen Bonang serving killer stay-at-home looks. This weekend was no different as the star’s lockdown drip did not disappoint.
While we’re used to seeing Queen B in high-end designer gowns, the looks she’s been serving during this lockdown have shown us that there's little Queen B can't pull off, including casual wear.
Staying at home has honestly never looked this good. Might we add, we’re absolutely obsessed with her jacket!
Instead of celebrating Mother’s Day by simply posting a selfie with her mother, Rouge took it a step further with a throwback to the time when her mother received her first SAMA Award on her behalf.
The rapper scooped the Music Video of the Year Award at the 24th annual SAMA awards in 2018 for her hit song Arumtumtum and her mother accepted the award on her behalf since she was not able to attend.
Sho Madjozi celebrated her 28th birthday this weekend! While the star is used to having her friends dress up and meet up to celebrate her birthday with her, she had to do things a little differently this year.
The star requested her followers to dress up like her for her birthday, and they were delighted at the opportunity to dress as their fave. She gave away prizes in the form of data, airtime and cash for the most impressive Sho Madjozi looks.
