Feather Awards Nominees List!

What used to be the most liked and talked about award ceremony is back for it’s tenth stunt at trying to entertain us with once more, but it seems the public is not really buying to that anymore. There’s more what are the Feather’s are for than people celebrating. Well, just over a week ago nominees were announced at the Constitutional Hill, queers and straight folks attended the glitzy event and sadly we were not there. The main event will take place on Thursday, 15 November and will be hosted by Somizi Mhlongo.

Let’s take a look at the nominees and try predict the winners:

Nominees for Diva Extrodinaire:

  • Khuselo Diko.
  • Connie Ferguson.
  • Thembsie Matu.

and our winner is….

Thembsie Matu!!! We feel Sis’ Thembsie deserves this award bandla. She’s been hustling for over a decade and only now her star seems to beam and we feel it’s time the feathers give her what’s due to her.

Sports Personality Of The year:

  • Sunette Viljoen.
  • Hlengiwe Buthelezi.
  • Phuti Lekoloane.

We don’t care who wins on this category…

Musician Of The year:

  • FAKA.
  • Nakhane Toure.
  • Sjava.

We’re not giving Sjava the Gong, he received a bigger award earlier in the year. We’re opting to go with…

Nakhane Toure!

Drama Queen Of The Year:

  • Robbie Malinga Jnr.
  • AKA and Matlapa.
  • Jackie Phamotse.

Jackie my darling this year is yours!

Role Model OF The Year:

  • Find New Words.
  • Siya Khumalo
  • Ntsupe Mohapi.

No winner for us.

But we have it on good 90% that the Siya dude might walk away with the gong come the awards night.

Best Styled Female:

  • Manthe Ribane.
  • Bonang Matheba.
  • Ayanda Thabethe.

Without a doubt Bonang! But we know if it were up to Somizi, Bonang can’t win and we all know that Somizi is BFF’s with the co-founder of the feathers. Ummmhhh…so anything can happen really. It would be nice if Somizi were to hand over the gong to Bonang. That might just bring back the spark we know the Feathers to be.

Best Styled Male:

  • Kat Sinivasan.
  • Riky Rick.
  • Zulu Makhathini.

All these lads are good ey, but there can only be one winner and that is

King Kotini.

Media of the year:

  • Daily Sun.
  • eNCA.
  • Ferguson Films.
  • RGB.
  • Sunday Sun.
  • Touch Online.
  • Metro FM.
  • Living the Dream.
  • GaySA Radio.
  • Mail & Guardian.

The nepotism that is going to happen on this category…

Hot Chick Of the year:

  • Bontle Modiselle.
  • Mihali Ndamase.
  • Michelle Mosalakae.

If it were a pretty chick of the year we would definitely give it to Mihlali Ndamase. Mihlali is one hell of a beautiful girl. But since it’s hot chick we will give it to our sister Bontle Modiselle.

Hunk Of the year moved from this…

to this:

  • Thabang Molaba.
  • Bohang Moeko.
  • Dominic Khumalo.

we love Bohang but we have a funny feeling that Dominic might take this.

Fag Hag Of the year:

  • Phila Madlingozi.
  • Rami Chuene.
  • Busiswa Gqulu.


Cutest Couple of the year:

  • Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and Mmabatho Montsho.
  • Shane Eagle and Nikki.
  • Steve and Lucy.

Socialite of the year:

  • Modiselle Sisters.
  • Yaya Mavundla.
  • Dr Alexander “LEXLEO” Rawhán.

Without a doubt our gurl, our sista, Yaya Mavundla.

Good Luck to all the nominees, we shall see you in November!
