Stylish diva Sisulu tickled pink
In the most unlikely fashion, Public Service and Administration Minister Lindiwe Sisulu snagged two nominations for November's Feather Awards.
The fiery minister was nominated in the best styled female category alongside Miss SA Melinda Bam, actress Minnie Dlamini and TV presenter Jeannie D.
She found herself among seemingly more mature company in the diva extraordinaire category (for women who "carry themselves well and have a strong and dignified presence") alongside Isidingo vixen Michelle Botes, media mogul Khanyi Dhlomo and DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko.
The nominees were announced in Sandton last night.
Awards founder Thami Kotlolo spoke of his pride at seeing the event grow into one worthy of an hour-long special broadcast on SABC1.
"It has not been difficult [getting celebrities to buy into the idea of these awards]. We've had a few incidences [in previous years] when nominees pulled out, especially in the drama queen category," Kotlolo said.
Fallen IdolTshidi Tenyane, actor Sello Maake ka-Ncube, Tina Mkwaiwa and Bishop Keith Harrington are up for drama queen.
The ceremony w ill be held on November 7. -
