Boity saved Lerato Kganyago’s life

South African media personality Boity Thulo is known for her selfless heart and always being there for people. Lerato Kganyago is one of those people who are fond of Boity because she always shows up for her in her time of need.

Lerato has been subjected to immense bullying on social media and especially from people in the industry. This saw her not getting along with many celebrities but Boity makes sure to ride for her even in her absence.

Taking to Instagram, Lerato Khanyago showed Boity some love and appreciation saying she saved her life, “I bumped into you the other day reminding you how much I appreciate you. Forever grateful for what you did over the years. You saved my life, thank you,” she wrote.

Boity responded and said, “Love you always sis.”

A few years ago celebs broke bread for the V-Entertainment dinner. Bonang, Minnie Dlamini, Somizi, Tall As* Mo and , Kuli Roberts all sat and discussed some pressing issues. Kuli degraded Lerato and said she is glad she did not attend. She also threw shade at her saying she copies Bonang.

Boity was the only person to call Kuli out, “What the F does that even mean?” It’s so weird man – it’s not even necessary. It’s so out of line.”

In her IG live, Lerato even acknowledged Boity’s support.

Despite all the backlash, Lerayo continues to collect her WINS. She bagged three Basadi In Music awards nominations. She is nominated for DJ Of The Year award alongside DBN Gogo DJ Zinhle, Lamiez, and Lesego M.

Then she is nominated for Entertainment Radio Presenter Of The Year alongside Lebo Jojo Mokoena, Jabulile Vilakazi, Minenhle Masondo, and Andele Mdoda.

Her third nod is for Mosadi in Business Achievement Award alongside DJ Zinhle and Dineo Ranaka.

Thanking her fans for the support, Lerao said, “Thank you to everyone that keeps nominating and voting for me, that’s already a BIG WIN for me! Thank YOU A blessed weekend to you ALL. See you at the #IAMWOMANExperience and Delicious Fest.”

Boity is currently working on a major project to be launched soon. She prides herself of catering for all women.

“As a black female entrepreneur, I feel privileged and honoured to be able to inspire other young black women to work hard and to move unapologetically towards their dreams and goals.

I’m constantly working to create BRANDS that celebrate the multifaceted woman who is in charge of her destiny. Hence… It’s no surprise that this NEXT BRAND I’ll be launching is built on the notion of celebrating and owning our individuality as women… and highlighting the power in Being Whoever You Want To Be! There are so many ways to Be You,” she said asking her followers to guess her next move.
