Just as we were getting over that emotional graduation ceremony two weeks, Nomzamo Mbatha’s got us in our feels again.

Nomzamo sent Mzansi into a frenzy when she paid powerful tribute to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela at her graduation ceremony and had the faces of lost loved ones printed onto her outfit. She also added the words ‘resilience, courage and overcome’ on the dress.

Earlier this week the TV personality held another intimate dinner with close friends and family.

And, it was an emotional ceremony. This time it was Nomzamo’s bae, Maps Maponyane that had us reaching for a tissue.

Maps had Nomzamo’s grandmother painted on a canvas as her graduation present.

“Had my grandmother’s picture painted on a canvas as my graduation gift. Safe to say my makeup was a mess after that, tears galore! My well of gratitude runneth over. For ever and ever.”
