Minnie's secret project revealed

DRUM finds out what those gorgeous pictures of Minnie in traditional Zulu attire were all about.

Minnie has been a busy woman this year, travelling for her duties as a sports presenter and taking over New York City.

The KZN native also spent the past three months shooting in places like the Moses Mabhida stadium, uShaka Marine World and the iconic sugar cane fields of the coast.

Having kept the project on the hush for a long time, it was with great excitement that DRUM discovered this was all work towards Minnie’s first calendar. The 2015 calendar is linked to the starlet’s foundation, which aims to help young girls attain clothes, toiletries, stationery, school uniform and food.

“Many young girls suffer the embarrassment of not having and thus end up dropping out of school or as a result of not having they become victims of bullying. This is just a small token I can extend to them that I hope will take away the feeling of embarrassment and of not belonging. No girl child should ever feel ashamed of herself and not be provided with the tools that lead to her education,” the beauty says.

Minnie can’t wait to launch the special project on November 20: “I am working with the most amazing creative team, the photographer Aubrey Johnson, is a Durbanite and has thus far captured the beauty of the city – and mine of course, in a very artistic way. The Zulu attire was something we came up with and my mother, Queen Dlamini, styled it. Each look has a story attached to its location.”

Now that the jet-setter is back from her #MinnieInvadesNYC escapades, she will shoot the second part of her calendar before its official launch in November.

Go, girl!
