South African media mogul and philanthropist, Basetsana 'Bassie' Kumalo, recently turned 47 years old on 29 March 2021 and she celebrated her birthday well into the month of April. Taking to Instagram to share her birthday moments with the hashtag #Grateful47, she's seen celebrating her birthday in Johannesburg and with a family trip to the Western Cape. 

In a post shared on the day of her birthday, she writes that she wouldn't have made it to 47 without God's divine grace and faithfulness. 

"May we perhaps collectively find or understand what this chapter of our lives represents as we navigate this 'new normal' [and reflect on] what lessons we had to learn and how we can do better, be kinder, be compassionate, be empathetic, be giving, be considerate, be gentler, be fully present because tomorrow is not guaranteed," she wrote. 

"All I have is Gratitude and a heart full of joy as I journey onto chapter 47 of my life. Happiest of birthdays to me."

Let's take a look at all she got up to since her 47th birthday - from her celebration in Johannesburg to her vacation in Cape Town:
