The festive season has officially started and your favourite local celebs are getting into the holiday spirit. DRUM caught up with some of Mzansi most-loved celebs to find out how they will be celebrating their holidays.

Muzi Mthabela

He’s had a very busy year juggling roles as Duma in Isibaya, Richard on e.tv’s Harvest and Isaac on Mzansi’s Ring of Lies so Muzi says the festive season is his time to spend with family. 
“My grandmother said family comes first so this time of the year it’s for my kids really. Usually we go to KZN where we come together with other family members.” 
But this year Muzi says he will be in Joburg with his wife and two daughters. 

Andisiwe Dweba 

Andisiwe, who plays Getty in Generations: The Legacy, says she’ll be sticking to tradition. Their whole family will gather at her grandmother’s house in Tabankulu, Eastern Cape, on Christmas Day to exchange gifts and cook up a storm.
 “We then plant a tree in honour of my grandparents who have both passed on.”

DJ Tira

The festive season is a very busy time for the popular DJ – he has more gigs now than at any other time of the year. But on Christmas Day he makes sure to be at home with his family.  “I spend time with my family eating all the colourful foods. But later on I go to where I am booked for gigs.” 

This year, he will be spending time with his family in Hluhluwe, northern KZN. After that he’s off to do what he loves – entertain the masses. 

Gigi Lamayne

The rapper tells us the festive season is a time where she gives back to the community. She works closely with Ethembeni Children's Home in Doornfontein where she spends time between 28 and 30 December playing with kids. “I get the whole family to donate clothes and spend time with the kids there.” But on Christmas Day she’ll be with her mother. “If I have to cancel a gig to be where my mother is, I do it.”

Nomsa Buthelezi

The Our Perfect Wedding presenter says the festive season is a time for her to sit back and relax after a long, tiring year. She visits her mother’s house in Alex and just chills. “We cook for her and reminisce.” Yes, short and simple.
