Nandi's baby shower and epic week

It’s been quite the week for BET A-List host Nandi Madida. The gorgeous mom-to-be celebrated baby shower this weekend with a number of close friends, some of which happen to be fellow celebs.
The elegant affair to toast to the milestone was attended by celebs such as Minnie Dlamini and Noni Gasa. Minnie also played the part of event planner extraordinaire. Nandi credited her hubby, Zakes Bantwini, with keeping the surprise under wraps.

I have the best hubby in the world @Zakesbantwini! This was the best surprise baby shower ever thank you @minniedlamini for organizing this! You're my MVP! Thank you @nonigasa @langamngoma for planning this and thank you to all my friends who came💙. No I'm not in labour😂😂. #Funtimes #BabyMadida

The group sealed it off with a mannequin challenge in which Nandi teased that her water just broke. Luckily for us, it was all in the name of fun!

As if that wasn’t enough, an excited Nandi shared a picture of her on a massive billboard just outside the BET offices in Joburg, a short distance from where the baby shower was held.

What a year!🌟 Thanks @ayandathabethe_ for the photo! #Billboard #BETAlist

As if all that wasn't enough, she was also recently honoured by Forbes Women Africa as the 'Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year'. She recently launched her fashion line, Colour, which she debuted at the BET AWards in Los Angeles this year. Check out this snap of her and baby Madida posing alongside the award plaque.

"It was all a dream" I am beyond humbled to receive such an award. We've just signed an incredible deal for 2017 for Colour. As I enter this journey of being a new mom I can only hope my child, husband and family can be proud of me. I do it for them❤️. 2016 thank you for being so good to me. Thank you @WED_SouthAfrica @ForbesWomanAfrica #WomenWOW-SA
