#Feathers13: Has the LGBTI community cancelled Somizi, Bujy and Mohale?

Yesterday, E-SA attended the 13th annual Feather Awards and as expected, most South African celebrities went an extra fashion mile on the pink carpet held at the Market Theater on Thursday night 12th of November, 2021.

Some of the winners were not present to receive their awards, but others who graced the event made sizzling fashion statement.

Speaking of absent people, we couldn’t help but notice that Somizi and Bujy were not present at the coveted awards. We know, you are probably thinking that’s very strange of us to be even thinking of them, but it is quite suspicious that two of the most talked about members of the LGBTIQ community were not present to attend the Feathers.

In 2019, Bujy was available at the Feather Awards and was addressing issues surrounding the LGBTI community, including GBV and discrimination.

Bujy was arrested and charged with assault after an altercation with media personality Boity Thulo (31) where he threw a glass at her.

He was released on R2 000 bail. Meanwhile, radio and tv personality Bujy Bikwa (33) is participating in a 5km walk against gender-based violence.

Somizi on the other hand, with his partner Mohale – were also involved in a bitter embroilment as Mohale accused the former Idols SA judge of abusing him during their short-lived matrimony.

Could it be that the LGBTI community has completely written the mentioned personalities off? Or maybe they are just shying away from any negativity that might put the LGBTIQ community’s reputation in jeopardy?
