Sho Madjozi

Sho Madjozi made South Africa proud last month when she took home the ‘Best International New Act’ at the 2019 BET Awards.

The 27-year-old won the award just weeks after winning big at the SAMAs. The Huku hitmaker has changed the game for xiTsonga.

“My story is testament that you can come from any village, in any forgotten part of the world, and still be a superstar. For girls that come from where I am from, which is Limpopo, I just want to say that you don’t need to change who you are, you can still be big,” she said in her BET acceptance speech.

Caster Semenya

Caster Semenya was recognised in the ’30 under 30′ sports category.

The 800m gold medalist made headlines earlier this year when she challenged an IAAF ruling that would force her to take medication to lower her testosterone level. Despite the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling in the IAAF’s favour, Caster held her head high. The Swiss supreme federal court went on to overturn the ruling and caster responded by setting a new 800m meeting record at the Monaco Diamond League.

The 24-year-old also broke a 25-year-old 800m African record at the African Championships in Nigeria earlier this month.
