The South African Heroes Awards nominee, model, founder of the Mr Icon Gauteng Pageant & The Godfrey Mphatswe Foundation, Godfrey has received a nomination for his community service.

 Born and breed in the North West and later relocating to Gauteng to chase his dream of becoming one of South Africa’s most influential people. Through his journey he managed to grab a number of titles, such as, the Mister South Africa pageant finalist, Mister South Africa Board member and the Face of Bogart. After his long modelling career, he went to becoming a social activist, partaking in charity work and raising awareness on disability, albinism and children abandonment.

In 2018, he took a new leap and established the Godfrey Mphatswe Foundation. Through this foundation he brought us the incredible first-ever Mr. Icon Gauteng pageant, with the sole purpose of offering a platform to smart, driven and talented young men in Gauteng. The pageant was aimed at harnessing leadership skills, building character and empowering them.

This year not only does Godfrey plan to bring the second round of Mr Icon Gauteng, but he plans to grow the project to bring together hundreds of young men in need of mentoring within Gauteng.

His amazing charity work and dedication towards community building has shown Godfrey to be a true depiction of a noble South African hero. We caught up with this Icon and he had this to say, “I am very much honoured to have been nominated for the South African Heroes Awards. My greatest gratitude to everyone who has played a role in this and please keep voting for me as many times as you possibly can. Thank you very much”
