The prestigious awards ceremony recognises and celebrates the trailblazers within South Africa shaping our cultural landscape and pushing boundaries.
From artists to humanitarians, innovators to designers, comedians and entrepreneurs, GQ South Africa and Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège celebrated the best talent leading the way in South Africa and Africa.
“Since its inauguration, Men of the Year has been pivotal in showing how diverse we are, not only as a brand and who we spotlight but also how diverse the people who shape our culture are. We’re part of a global brand that acknowledges those who epitomise excellence and inspire with their talent, achievements, and personality. We are truly honoured to have been able to do this for the fourth year in a row,” said GQ editor-in-chief Molife Kumona.
