On Monday, 22 July 2019, Letoya Makhene took to Instagram to share pictures of the award she received at the Gauteng Influential Women Awards.
Generations: The Legacy actress and musician, Letoya Makhene, shared a post on Instagram in a graceful pose holding the Influential Woman Award in her hand, while expressing her gratitude. The post was followed by congratulatory messages from some of her followers who reiterated that she deserved it. Over and above the comments, the post received over 4 000 likes from her social media following of over 500 000 followers. The award ceremony event took place on Saturday, 20 July 2019, at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.
Earlier in the week, Letoya shared that she would be performing at the event alongside other artists. The line-up included Ranjiv Mothie, Tina Kapp, Oriental Fire, The Afrofusion Cast and various other artists.
Letoya attended the event with two of her sons and two friends who accompanied her as dates. The media personality was dressed in a long black dress with a gold belt designed by Izembatique, who has previously made various ensembles for South African politician, Patricia De Lille.
Her husband, Tshepo, however, could not make it to the event as he had stayed at home with the couples’ youngest child. She expressed in the post, “While I would have loved to have you by my side on such a special occasion, we know that we can’t control the unexpected diversions in our lives. To know that you have my back means everything to me”.
