Controversial actor Sthembiso “SK” Khoza has been nominated for the 14th annual Feather Awards under the Drama Queen of the Year category.
SK is nominated alongside Real Housewives of Cape Town star Thato Montse and University of Cape Town’s vice-chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng.
SK’S YEAR OF DRAMA
The Black Door actor’s life has been marred by nothing but controversy the past year.
This ranges from rumours of him allegedly beating up his ex-fiancé Ayanda “Mandy” Hlongwane in October last year to a video of him behaving erratically in public.
All these instances sparked a debate on social media that the 36-year-old was allegedly using experimental drugs.
On Tuesday 11 October, SK’s baby mama, reality TV star Makgotso Lee-Anne “Gogo Maweni” Mokopo said she has proof that he is using drugs.
The sangoma told rapper Gigi Lamayne on her Point Of View podcast that she has a damning video of her baby daddy doing drugs in the bathroom.
Lee-Anne also said SK introduced her to drugs.
“I won’t lie, I’ve tried coke [cocaine]. But you try coke to a point where you say ‘this is not me,’” Gogo Maweni said.
SK did however respond to the claims that he is using.
Speaking to local businessman TT Mbha on his podcast on Instagram Live in May, he claimed his outlandish behaviour came as a result of him being in a “dark place.”
SK ON THE BLACK DOOR
The father of four has been receiving great reviews about his character on e.tv’s late-night teledrama The Black Door.
SK plays the role of Sabelo Cele, a character viewers of the risqué telenovela believe could be an undercover police officer.
The Feather Awards awards will take place on 10 November at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg.
Sunday World reports that the different categories of the awards are made up of individuals or groups from both the private and public sectors, and the nominees have all represented, inspired, or celebrated the LGBTIQ community over the past year.
