TV personality Minnie Dlamini- Jones shared a special memory from her early pageant days. She shared a cute snap of herself and her friend Khabonina Nkwelo as she is celebrating her birthday today.
She wrote: “Look what I found? This was the day I convinced @khaboninankwelo to enter her first pageant (Miss Hillcrest Corner) I promised to teach her everything I knew (not that she needed it) We both placed in the top 3 and we had lots of money and prizes to spend at that mall. Needless to say, it was worth the exercise.
“Happy Birthday my angel I’ve loved you since you were the coolest 14-year-old metal-mouthed hockey player I’d ever met!!! I love you sooooooo much still,” she added.
Earlier this year, Minnie Dlamini shared another cute snap of herself and Nandi Madida’s sister Dr. Langa Mngoma on stage at another modeling pageant.
In her lengthy caption, Minnie also shared that she won her very first pageant in 2002.
“This was the year 2000, @drlangamngoma and I choreographed our duo/group performance to “It’s Raining Men” at our modeling graduation for @roberta_alessandri_models. This was my first modeling graduation, and we won the best duo/group performance. @nandi_madida won the overall model of the year, @drlangamngomacame 2nd and I came 3rd.
The following year @drlangamngoma and I dominated again getting tie first place (Nandi was thankfully in Highschool )I entered many pageants and lost all of them, until 2002 where I won my first pageant and then went on to win Little Miss South Africa.
I’m so grateful for my sisters, we pushed each other, we competed hard but we always maintained love. A win for one was a win for all!!! Growing up with the Mngoma family was beautiful, we had the best childhood ️ I’m so happy our families are still super close today after all these years. As the saying goes “It takes a village…” her caption read.
Mrs. Jones may have outgrown the modeling phase of her life, but she is doing a remarkable job as a media personality and a mother. She recently shared a video of herself taking her son Netha Makhosini to the beach for the first time.
Captioning a video, she wrote: “I took Netha to the Beach for the first time, to get his blessings from the ocean.”
Last year she celebrated 10 years in the entertainment industry at a prestigious G.H. Mumm brunch celebrating “new beginnings and personal achievements”
