Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has been honoured with the GQ Men of the Year Award in the highest and special category, the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Lifetime Achievement Award on Saturday, 12 December 2020.
The event recognises men and women who shape our cultural landscape – those men and women who are wise, inspiring and are the most talented people of the year. The event was the brand’s second GQ Men of the Year awards ceremony held in South Africa and on the African continent.
The award was accepted by the chairman’s son, Kaizer Motaung Jnr.
“I wish to accept this award on behalf of my father and mentor, Mr Kaizer Motaung Snr. I’d like to say thank you to GQ South Africa for recognising the original glamour boy. He is a true leader and innovator. He is a king amongst kings to us,” said Kaizer Jnr.
The managing director of Moët Hennessy for Africa and the Middle East added that this year’s Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège presented the Lifetime Achievement award to Kaizer Motaung.
“The award recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to South African sport over the last 50 years and who continues to be dedicated to the progression of the industry.
“We are honoured to have been able to present this to Kaizer Motaung, an exceptional individual who continues to play a vital role in South African soccer.”
“Congratulations to ‘Captain Chincha Guluva’ as he continues to impact the world in a positive way,” Chiefs stated in a statement.
