Zweli Dube was crowned Mzansi's sexiest man for 2017 by Sowetan Live and Sunday World in a swanky party held last night at Level Three Premium Venue in Kramerville.
During his acceptance speech, the actor thanked The Most High for this victory but we think he should have thanked his gorgeous mom who was his date for the evening.
We spoke to Ma Dube following Zweli's victory
"I feel good and I am so happy. First of all, I want to thank God, because it's not me and it's not him [Zweli], it's the man above," she said.
When asked how he she found out she was going to the party with him, Ma Dube just said that her son had reminded her that it was his last day to rack up votes for the competition and had asked her to pray for his victory. She then told us that she suggested they pray together.
"And I told him[Zweli], if you believe in Him [God], you will come back with that. It's yours... Then he said 'you know what mommy? I want to go with you' and I reminded him that if you've got faith, you will come back with that trophy and it really happened," she explained.
Awww man! He's gorgeous, humble and loves his mom. Ma Dube did such a good job raising him that we almost wanted to become a Dube makoti.
Babes Wodumo won the title for Sexiest Woman for 2017 but she was unfortunately not there to collect her award.
