On Friday afternoon, TRUELOVE and Pongracz  hosted a luncheon in the heart of Sandton, at The Maslow Hotel, to celebrate its August/September 2021 cover stars, media mogul Basetsana Kumalo and Miss SA Shudufhadzo Musida. 

Among the guests were powerful and impactful women, some of which were featured in the 2021 Prestige List in the same issue. Some of the guests included popular author and medical practitioner Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, neurosurgeon Dr Coceka Mfundisi, communications specialist Kay Sexwale and popular medical doctor Dr Lerato Masemola (aka Dr Lovelee) - among others. 

Don't be afraid to stand in the light of your own truth
Basetsana Kumalo

TRUELOVE Editor, Makhosazana Zwane-Siguqa, gave an inspiring welcome speech where she thanked Basetsana and Shudufhadzo for agreeing to be on the cover and introduced each guest that was in attendance. 

Her welcome speech was followed by a speech from Basetsana. 

"We woke up today because God loves us so much," she said. "We woke up today because we have to make a difference in someone else's life. We woke up today because our assignment is not done, our calling is not done, and our purpose is not done. I encourage us to wake everyday with joy in our hearts, with compassion, and with kindness. Don't be afraid to stand in the light of your own truth." 

As women, we need to affirm each other because the world doesn't affirm us
Shudufhadzo Musida

Shudufhadzo also took to the stage and talked about her journey, how she was inspired by Basetsana and about her new book. 

"She (Basetsana) speaks about our mother-daughter relationship; we once had a phone call where I finally understood that things may get hard, but I've got someone that's got my back," she said. 

"As women, we need to affirm each other because the world doesn't affirm us. Knowing that I've got all of you, for me, means that I'm not alone." 

It was a beautiful afternoon filled with laughter, joy, affirmation, lessons and Pongracz sparkling wine to seal the celebration. 

Here's a look inside the joy-filled affair:
