Thomas Gumede SAFTas

Abomama drama series, which was produced by Thomas Gumede’s production company Parental Advisory Productions, failed to score a SAFTA nomination and Thomas Gumede was not happy with it. Gumede told fans that at first he was so hurt and thought they must’ve not entered the SAFTAs properly but they did.

“So Abomama did not get even one nomination at the SAFTAs. Out of all the categories and all the shows nominated, a panel sat and decided that there was not a single thing that was done right on one of the highest rating dramas on Mzansi Magic (sic),” – Thomas tweeted.

“I’m just letting everyone know who supported the show every single Sunday. I don’t imagine anything will be done. I just wanted people to know we submitted properly (swipe left) and our team was shocked… I’m glad I’m gettin this off my chest, there was no incompetence on our side. The panel just didn’t believe we did ANYTHING right with Abomama (sic),” – Thomas wrote on Instagram.

Sunday Sun reported last week that two of South Africa’s biggest soapies Generations: The Legacy and Muvhango had also boycotted the awards over unfair treatment. The South African Film and Television Awards are set to take place on the 2nd of March at Sun City Super bowl in North West.

Ayanda Thabethe visiting Sikhona Primary School KZN

If you’ve been following social media you would have seen that various celebrities have been very busy over the past few weeks visiting schools across SA distributing school shoes. This is part of the #KrushGoodness project which will see to it that 20 000 school children in need across SA receive a brand new pair of school shoes for the school year ahead.

ALSO READ: Ayanda Thabethe Living Her Best Life In New York

So far over 15 000 pairs of school shoes have been distributed so far, with the remaining 5 000 to be distributed over the next two weeks.

Ayanda Thabethe is one of the celebs who has thrown her weight behind this special project. We caught up with her just after her visits toSikhona Primary School and Zithuthukise Primary School in KZN last week.

What drew you to participate in the #KrushGoodness project?

I believe that sharing goodness in whatever way we can, in acts that are big and small, should be a part of our daily lives. I couldn’t wait to share the goodness with the beautiful children in the different schools and at the same time challenging others to do the same. 

What were you most looking forward to about visiting a school?

The smiles on their faces and just knowing that I was part of an act of kindness that will go a long way for them in their school year was something very special for me.

What, for you, is the biggest importance of helping our communities and children in particular?

In the words of Nelson Mandela “Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth, those who care for and protect our people”. It’s important therefore that I am part of the narrative that prepares the next generation for their role in continuing to build our beautiful country. 

Ayanda Thabethe visiting Sikhona Primary School KZN

Do you remember any celebrities coming to your school when you were a child? What memory sticks out the most for you and why?

Meeting alumni from my high school (even though they were not celebrities) who had gone out into the world and made a success of themselves in different career fields made a huge impact on me. Knowing that they came from the same rural high school that I had gone to, undergone the same process and made a huge success of themselves made me believe that I too will share a success story someday.

What is the one piece of advice you have for young fans of yours?

Trust the process and timing of your life. Keep your head down and focus on the task at hand which is your education that is the key that will open many doors for you. You have what it takes. Believe in yourself. 

What does the rest of 2019 hold for you?

2019 I’m emptying every ounce of talent I have in me. Availing myself to different opportunities and partnering with exciting brands! The future looks bright!

We were blessed with a great time but now it’s over,” he told the publication.

Sources told Sunday Sun that Kelly’s ancestral calling could have been a reason for the parting.

“I’ve always had time for my spirituality and religion. That’s what brought Kelly and me together and that’s also what separated us,” – Chad hinted that the couple had “different beliefs”.
