Mzansi is going gaga and it’s all because of Thuso Mbedu who is said to be carrying the whole SA entertainment industry on her back as her name keeps popping up at Hollywood’s big events.
On Monday Rihanna released the trailer for her third annual Savage X Fenty Show. The trailer revealed an all-star lineup of musicians, models, actors, and dancers wearing the latest Savage X Fenty collection from music. And guess whose name made it on the list, well, well, it’s none other than our very own South African born star Thuso.
That’s big right? And if you don’t think it’s that big then… let’s inform you that the Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 will stream exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide beginning Friday, September 24.
Rihanna herself took to social media to post the video and wrote: “#SAVAGEXFENTYSHOW VOL. 3!! start making that guest list to ya watch party baby …. sept. 24.”
#SAVAGEXFENTYSHOW VOL. 3!!
