GQ South Africa announced the winners of the Men of the Year awards on Saturday, 12 December 2020 at a prestigious awards ceremony held at Hotel Sky in Sandton – Johannesburg.

A brand property produced by GQ editions globally for more than 20 years, the GQ Men of the Year Awards recognizes the men and women who shape our cultural landscape – those men and women who are wise, inspiring and the most talented people of the year. This is the brand’s second GQ Men of the Year awards event held in South Africa and on the African continent.

Media Personality and Businesswoman, Bonang Matheba was named Woman of the Year. “Despite the pandemic, Bonang has had a strong year as a businesswoman, entertainer and all-around woman who has inspired all of us throughout 2020,” says Molife Kumona, Editor-in-Chief for GQ South Africa.

Bonang was the first South African woman to front the stand-alone cover of GQ South Africa for their “Power Issue” in 2018.

“On behalf of all women who take chances, lead, innovate as well as inspire the next generation to do even more and be even more, I am very proud to receive this award,” says Bonang.
