Top Billing celebrates Women's Day

In honour of Women’s Month and how our mothers and gogos mould South African men, Harmony decided to share the story of his mom - fashion entrepreneur Philomene Mbombo Katulondi, and the starring role she’s played in his life.

Harmony’s the first to tell you that he’s the product of the independent, entrepreneurial spirit of his mother Philomene Mbombo Katulondi who raised him while building her export fashion business from scratch while his father was away for work.

As a result of his mother’s thriving business, he loves authentic, African print and wears his mother’s designs with the greatest enthusiasm.

The theme of strong mother figures is not only relevant to Harmony’s life, but the lives of many South African men, as is the topic of Gillette’s short film Gogo Nozizwe, released in honour of Women’s Month.

This touching film considers the real phenomenon of how two out of every three children in South Africa are raised without their fathers. Telling the true story of Gogo Nozizwe and her grandson Kona, the film explores how, when fathers are not involved in their children’s lives, it is often the women who step up to shape the next generation and help them cope with adolescence.

The film is part of how this Women’s Month, Gillette, the brand that has been synonymous with men and masculinity, is paying tribute to the women raising a new generation of South African men.

As a part of this campaign, Gillette are also partnering with The Character Company, which  mentors young men in South Africa.
