It's no secret that Minnie Dlamini and the Mngoma sisters go way back. The three have been modelling together since they were little and Minnie even posted a picture of her and Dr Langa Mngoma at another modelling pageant in 2000.


The look so cute and the caption was even cuter.

"This was the year 2000, @drlangamngoma and I choreographed our duo/group performance to “It’s Raining Men”🤣 at our modelling graduation for @roberta_alessandri_models. This was my first modelling graduation, and we won best duo/group performance. @nandi_madida won overall model of the year, @drlangamngoma came 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 the 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...”


In other news, it has been a year since Minnie Dlamini's younger brother Khosini passed away after 23 days in ICU after he had been placed on life support after suffering a brain aneurysm.

Although life goes on Minnie who was very close to him is still trying to come to terms with his loss.

She posted his picture recently on her social media pages with a heartbreaking caption: The way I miss you today 🥺💔

We hope she finds healing.

However in her professional life things are looking up. Mrs. Jones was not bluffing when she said her son Netha came with blessings. The new momma has closed off the year 2020 with another WIN and we are here for it.

A few weeks ago she shared with her followers that her son Netha Makhosini Jones has been her lucky charm. Netha is Nguni for Rain, and sis was definitely in her bag when she came up with such a name. Minnie explained that after he came into this world, she has been granted more opportunities and she just shared her latest achievement.

The presenter just announced today that her production company Beautiful Day Productions is getting ready to shoot it's very first film. "I’m officially working on producing my first movie. Christmas really came early," she wrote.

Minnie is living up to her promise of giving her son the soft life he deserves. As per her tweet, she is committed to hustling harder as a working mother, in order to make sure that her baby has everything he needs. She stated, “I swear my child arrived with blessings from the other side. Kunetha izinhlanhla ngempela (it's raining blessings indeed). So excited about what the new year brings, it means I have to work twice as hard but I’m ready to show my son what I’m made of and make him proud!!!! What’s your motivation?”

Even though she is set on achieving her goal, Minnie had taken a break from being a full-time working mom, to let her hair loose and share a couple of laughs with her best friends, Lefase Chokoe, Sane Mahlase, and Azola Mona.

They took over the Italian restaurant Saint in Sandton. Taking to Instagram, Minnie thanked her gorgeous friends for always being there for her despite the horrible year people had experienced, "What a year 2020... has been so wild, but thank you, ladies, for always being there."

Mrs. Jones is definitely enjoying her new life as a mother, but when her son was a week old she admitted that it is not easy but her family and hubby are taking some of the huge load off her shoulder.

Mad respect to all parents doing their best at raising their kids. This experience is no joke!!! So blessed to have such amazing support, my mom's and most especially my amazing husband (I could cry at how great he is with the kid) Nothing great ever comes easy.”
