Shauwn Mkhize was the Queen of fan hearts in 2020
Businesswoman and reality television star Shauwn Mkhize has become Mzansi’s fan favourite which even led to her scooping a Hollywood African Prestigious Award in September.
This is all because of hit show Kwa Mam’Mkhize which earned Shauwn her first international award.
Mam’Mkhize’s reality show won best reality television program beating the likes of 90 Day Fiancè, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Naija Hood, to call a couple of .
To show how important the award was to her, in October she celebrated the honour with a glitz and glam, black-tie themed event in Sandton, attended by her close friends, family and a couple of members of the media.
Her celebrity guests included Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung, Vusi Nova and Lasizwe.
During her virtual acceptance speech Shauwn expressed her gratitude for the love and support for her show.
“It’s hard to believe that a show that was predominantly in isiZulu would get this much international recognition.
“We are so excited, my family and that i would really like to thank all the viewers and fans for watching and supporting the show. Being welcomed within the industry has been nothing in need of amazing.”
The businesswoman added she was extremely honoured to be representing SA on a world platform. “This year a worldwide pandemic halted our lives but there was a light-weight at the top of the tunnel. I’m hopeful that this is often a start for several goodies to return , truly humbled and excited to be a part of an inventory of girls who are change-makers in their respective industries.”
Andile Mpisane [son], was also nominated within the best new independent African artists and best new male independent African music video categories. He, however, didn’t win a gift .
