Mkhize hosts spectacularly royal affair

Fame & Fortune

It is beyond doubt that the Royal AM hierarchy are glamorous people and it is fair to say that their recent family event is alluring by any stretch of the imagination! 

AM’s president Shauwn Mkhize is a powerful businesswoman. The spotlight hardly ever shines away from her, as her prominent stature and profoundly extravagant lifestyle remain an interest for many of those who follow the KwaZulu-Natal club.

What’s not opulent about it? 

It was a gold and black affair at the Mkhize mansion this weekend, which was quite a fitting theme given that these are the colours that best represent their club. 

Nothing about the event seemed short of being royal, as the stunning outfits, regal decorations,  multimillion-rand cars and grand chandeliers were simply majestic. 

The AM Family 

With many unfamiliar faces to the footballing world present at the event, there were a few known individuals to the footballing community. Club chairman Andile Mpisane was a familiar attendee, as well as the iconic South African football supporter Mama Joy, who recently switched allegiance from Orlando Pirates to the eThekwini-based outfit. 

Did you know? 

The club president’s mother is Florence Mkhize, who was an African National Congress veteran and anti-apartheid activist. 

Also known as ‘Mam Flo’, the liberation activist received the Bravery Award from the ANC Women’s League in 1998. She also received a Military Gold Medal from the first democratic president of South Africa Nelson Mandela at the MK Military Veterans Conference in 1999, per South African History Online.
