Unathi’s birthday message to Minnie gives us feels

Unathi Nkayi's message to Minnie Dlamini is everything.

You can almost hear Unathi’s trademark infectious laugh in the screen-grab.

Popular radio host and Idols SA judge Unathi Nkayi sent out the most heartfelt birthday message to Minnie Dlamini for her recent 30th birthday.

While Nkayi and Dlamini’s friendship is pretty low-key, it seems from the deeply moving words posted on Instagram by Nkayi that the pair share a deep bond that spans a few years.

“Sharing a life with you is MAGIC. You gave me brothers when I didn’t have and made my sisters your own. You’ve given me a friend in your best friend and have taken mine as your own.”

My Minnz Sharing a life with you is MAGIC. You gave me brothers when I didn’t have and made my sisters your own. You’ve given me a friend in your best friend and have taken mine as your own. We speak of the blessing of having both our parents alive and married and how that has grounded us and guided us. You have allowed me to cry in pain and in pure joy with you and I trust you in both those spaces. I thank God for you. My sister. My friend. My mentor. My confidant. My tribe. Happy Birthday. That time (as we planned this from LAST YEAR ALREADY) we were meant to be on a private island in Mauritius in thong bikinis shutting down the internet with our great legs and asses BUT ke SILAPHA ngoku Minnz.????????????????????????????SILAPHA ngoku❤️ @minniedlamini

The birthday message and video-call screengrab of the celebs laughing also prompted a flurry of well-wishes for Dlamini from fans and other inquisitive netizens.

Pre-lockdown, the two celeb friends had planned to celebrate Dlamini’s 30th in Mauritius and Nkayi expressed her regret that their plans are now on hold.
