Unathi Nkayi is by far one of the most loved women in the South African entertainment industry. The media personality has been in the entertainment industry for well over a decade and during her illustrious career, she has achieved many milestones. 

Over the years, Unathi has successfully dabbled in music, presenting and producing, making her one of the most versatile stars in this part of the world. 

The Idols judge recently celebrated her 40th birthday and taking to Instagram, she shared a heartfelt message and snaps from her girls getaway:

"They say life begins at 40. It is my born day today. 40 years ago I was born to Sakhiwo no Nondwe who conceived me out of love. My uncle Ndabazoxolo Nkayi named me Unathi. I was the only grandchild my grandfather, Themba, named. To which he gave me the name, Fundiswa, which I use as my second name," she wrote, in part. 

Take a look at the full message and snaps below:   

40 They say life begins at 40. It is my born day today. 40 years ago I was born to Sakhiwo no Nondwe who conceived me out of love. My uncle Ndabazoxolo Nkayi named me Unathi. I was the only grandchild my grandfather,Themba, named. To which he gave me the name, Fundiswa, which I use as my second name. My grandfather was/is Themba, whose father was Dyonashe, the son of Singqe🙏🏾 I know I am the answer to my forefathers dreams and prayers and I hold that with high regard. I am the mother of Sinako and Imbo Msengana who too were conceived in love with the man who remains the love of my life. I am sister to my incredible sisters, cousin-niece-aunt-granddaughter to my solid fam and friend to my absolutely crazy friends. To ALL of you thank you for your love. To those I love, have met, never have met and possibly never will. Your love has made me the woman I am today. Thank you for your love. LOVE is a doing word❤️
