International gossip website featured Minnie on their website yesterday as a “JohannesBAE”, and introduced her as the “the South African stunner heating up the internet”. 


The local TV and media personality – who is the official brand ambassador for the Essence Festival – posted an image on her Instagram last week, which sent the internet into a frenzy.

“Gorgeous South African TV personality Minnie Dlamini has the internet in a tizzy over a stunning photo that not-so-shockingly went viral, shattered the internet and proved yet again that magical Black women run the world in 2016,” the website wrote.

The television presenter has many memorable posts on her Instagram and this recent picture, with over 68 700 likes on Instagram, is one of her best.

Earlier this year Minnie was the first to reach 1 million followers on Instagram and holds the top spot of the most followed celebrities in South Africa.

Minnie retweeted Bossip’s post, and had a sweet exchange with the website on Twitter:


Celebrity reporter/blogger Makho Ndlovu posted on her Instagram, saying, “#EssenceFestivalDurban Brand Ambassador @minniedlamini turned quite a few heads today! The media personality was serving us body goals on the ‘gram. Hot! Can’t wait to see what she wears during the festival in SA! #Regram”

While SA Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo posted the same picture of Minnie with the caption: “Where can I get those pot plants at the back. Pls help,” to which Somizi’s followers joined in the fun.

Some joked that Somizi might be contemplating going “straight” after seeing the “beautiful pot plants”.
