Hello, beautiful ones of the Most High! I hope you all had a fun filled weekend. Let me tell you about my weekend. It was a little different from the usual but it was amazing. When I turned 30 I told myself I would put myself out there and do things I have been afraid of doing. I was invited to a Kizomba Masquerade Ball organized by BailaAfrika on Saturday night by my brother. He always invites me to the dance classes but I am extremely shy (unbelievable right?) because I cannot dance Kizomba. So on Saturday I took a step out of my comfort zone and I loved it! I got to dance with a polite gentleman called Paciano and he is such a great dancer, wow, I was blown away! I felt like I had been dancing for years lol. I really appreciated his patience and kindness. The next step is to attend some of the dance classes.

All in all, the weekend was amazing and fun was had. Now, shall we meet our male feature for the week? Is that a yes? Lol! Let’s get right into it!

Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself

My name is Gugu Yanelisa Mdanyana. I live in Illovo, Sandton here in Johannesburg. I’m a fun, shy guy but outgoing at times . Otherwise I like being indoors as well as interacting with people.


What or who inspires or influences your style?

I’m inspired by nature and colors and I like mixing the two together. 


The one thing every man should have….

Every man should have brown shoes and a good cologne, making sure he smells good.


What are some of your closet favourites?

I love Aldo shoes and Kurt Geiger shoes, they do it for me. My Carducci and CSquared suits are also favourites. 


Gugu, thanks for taking time out to answer my questions and for agreeing to be part of this. I really appreciate it.  Keep scrolling for more pictures.
