Although #DayofTheGirl was globally commemorated yesterday, the #FreedomForGirls campaign aims to raise awareness and drive action to tackle challenges facing girls around the world and ensure the Global Goals are met. As such, the aim of the #FreedomForGirls campaign is carry the conversation and the work being done towards the end goal beyond 11 October.
If the Global Goals are to be met, these challenges must be solved:
- Violence against Girls: Every 5 minutes a girl dies as a result of violence
- Child Marriage: 1 in 4 girls gets married as a child
- Trafficking: 71% of human trafficking victims are female
- Female Genital Mutilation: 63 million girls have undergone FGM
- Access to Education: 130 million girls are out of school
- HIV/AIDS: Girls are twice as likely to become infected with HIV
The campaign has backing from prominent women and girls including Beyoncé, Melinda Gates, Graça Machel and Muzoon Almellehan.
The realm of entertainment also seeks to educate and inform and as such, we’d like to shout out these 5 South African girls/women who are doing important work using their platforms as a catalyst for change. In the words of Chance the Rapper; “the people’s champ must be everything the people can’t be.”
Thuso Mbedu – Acting
King Khai is a female version of Kwesta
This brings us to Kwesta and his daughter Khai. So like, how can one even begin to deny that this is Kwesta’s daughter? Even if Kwesta wanted to deny her, which he didn’t, he wouldn’t win because this is what we call a real daddy’s girl. She is his clone.
Little Khai Asemahle Bulelwa Vilakazi is the female version of her daddy. If she had to grow up to be a rapper then we’ll have the proof that we need that Kwesta has cloned himself for real.

In addition to making a pretty addition to your cocktail cabinet, this new flavour variant is perfect for creating simple fresh cocktails and celebrating at home with friends during the summer months.
Circo Mango can be mixed with Champagne to make a Mango Mimosa or it can be added to tonic to be enjoyed over ice.
“CÎROC’s success is built on innovating to ensure it remains ahead of the game, creating new and exciting variants that consumers will love. The new portfolio addition has been carefully crafted to ensure it retains the luxury credentials the brand is known for, whilst allowing us to engage with new and existing consumers. The new mango flavour is certainly going to add the #OnArrival moment to every Ciroc drinker’s celebrations,” said Diageo Reserve Portfolio Marketing Manager, Nosipho Mokabela.
Our favourite soapie mother-daughter duos
Some of our actors are so great at their roles that after all this time, we’ve started to believe they’re really family. Some have even gone to spend so much time together off-screen that we really believe they’re related. Check out our favourite soapie mother-daughter duos.
