TOP Zimbabwean supermodel and musician, Moe Makaya, who is based in the United Kingdom, was on Saturday rubbing shoulders with one of the most popular and richest sportspersons in the world, Floyd Mayweather, at a charity event in Birmingham.
The event, which took place in Birmingham at the ICC, was called The Floyd Mayweather Las Vegas Charity Ball and was hosted by Makaya’s modelling agency, Merrimaid.
In an interview with NewsDay, Makaya said she was overwhelmed to be in the presence of Mayweather, who pulled a long shadow over the world of sport.
“I had the pleasure of meeting him and he is an amazing person. He was very humble, motivating and polite. He also answered a lot of questions from the audience regarding his life career, which is equally inspiring,” she said.
The event was organised by a company called Fighter UK to raise money for charity, but guests were able to meet Mayweather.
“My team and I networked with many corporate people and millionaires, but also took care of Floyd and his team and helped with the auctioning on stage, raising a lot of money,” she said.
