Krijay believes Stars of Mzansi should honour Ashley February 24, 2008

Ashley Callie - Star Actress - Stars of MzansiTheatre and TV personality Krijay Govender and fashion designer Gavin Rajah have been nominated for the inaugural Stars of Mzansi awards, South Africa’s version of the American Emmys. The awards function, which will be held in the State Theatre, Pretoria, next Sunday, will honour South Africans who have achieved excellence in the entertainment, sports and fashion arenas.

Nominees were selected by leading journalists and critics.

The winners in the various categories will be selected by the public, who have been voting for their favourite stars by SMS and telephone and online.

Govender, who features in the TV sitcom Font, has been nominated in the star comedian category. She is up against heavyweights in the stand-up comedy circuit like David Kau, Marc Lottering and Loyiso Gola.

The former Miss India South Africa has also directed and starred in the SABC3 drama series Isidingo and is a sought-after MC, having hosted, among others, the Miss India Worldwide pageant and Anant Singh’s Now or Never concert.

She said she was “shocked and excited” by her nomination.

Still in shock over the death of former Isidingo colleague Ashley Callie, she believes the actress, who played Lee Haines, should be honoured by the Stars of Mzansi.

She said Callie, who was nominated in the star actress category, “left us at the pinnacle of health, beauty, vitality, talent and intelligence”.

“She should be honoured not only to mark her legacy, but because she was truly one of our most talented actresses.” – The Times

Ashley absolutely deserves to be named the best actress for that is what she was. I was not a regular viewer of Isidingo, but the first time I saw Ashley in screen she mezmorized me, and has kept me glued to the screen ever since. Even when I read tv Plus preview of what’s to come for Isidingo, I just glance over the words until I find Lee’s name, then I stop to read what she’ll be up to next.

I have already voted for Ashley, and I am convinced that she will at a canter. LETS GO ASH!!

val Says:

she was a very beautiful and talented person and will be greatly missed by one and all. isidingo will never be the same again.

 
Eon Engelbrecht Says:

When opening this website, watching Isidingo on TV or opening a magazine, the death of Ashley Callie still feels so unreal. Like it never happened… It feels like the character ,lee, died and that Ashley is still alive and well, but no- it’s the other way around… And yes, it hurts. My question… Why is there a saying ‘Only the good die young’ ??? And yet, it’s so true… Ashley fans… be sure to tune in on 29 Feb. for the Mzansi awards ceremony on SABC 1. According to TV Plus ,a tribute to Ashley will be broadcasted and I’m very sure ASHLEY WILL WIN THAT AWARD!!! Just a pity she won’t be able to accept that award… Let’s hope she wins and that her spirit will accept it… Rest in Peace…

 
Paul Says:

Ashley will definitely win the Mzansi Star Actress Award! I have no doubt in my mind! I have voted numerous times, as I’m sure a lot of you guys have too. Just a great, great pity that she isn’t going to be here to accept it … :-( I wonder if maybe her sister, Lauren, would accept it on her behalf? I have to agree with Eon, I still can’t get over that she’s gone … I was paging through the new YOU Magazine, looking at the beautiful pics of her, and found it very difficult to realize that we’ll never see her again :-(

Ashley, your great Beauty, and Spirit stays with me all the time.

To Lauren, Deon, Mr & Mrs Callie, & John, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think and pray for you all.

We miss you, Ash!!

s.miss her Says:

i agree with you paul…….there is not a day that we dont miss her.
the problem is that when ashley was living and on our screens……we took her for granted.like we all do…its a common thing done by all.its now that she is gone…that we all miss her.i am hopeing that when she is off screen things will change!

 
s.miss her Says:

Goodbye s.a rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along s.a greenest hills
Your candle’s burned out long before
Your legend ever will

Loveliness we’ve lost
These empty days without your smile
This torch we’ll always carry
For our nation’s golden child
And even though we try
The truth brings us to tears
All our words cannot express
The joy you brought us through the years

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along s.a greenest hills
Your candle’s burned our long before
Your legend ever will

Goodbye s.a rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
Goodbye s.a rose
From a country lost without your soul
Who’ll miss the wings of your compassion
More than you’ll ever know

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And you footsteps will always fall here
Along s.a greenest hills
Your candle’s burned out long before
Your legend ever will

ASHLEY GOES HOME

IN A DEEP SLEEP MY STAR SO SUDDENLY WENT,
ON MT KNEES I ASKED FOR GER AWAKENING,
LITTLE DID I KNOW
IT WAS HER TIME TO GO HOME.

BROKEN I AM
FOR THE LOSS OF SUCH A REMARKABLE LADY,
I’VE GROWN TO LOVE AS MANY OTHERS HAS DONE TOO.

SHE FELL ASLEEP IN OUR WORLD
AWAKENED IN THE STREETS OF GOLD,
A PLACE OF NO SORROW
BUT OF PEACE,

RADIANT BEAUTY,
A SWEETNESS SO GENTLE,
A LADY OF INSPIRATION INDEED.

SUDDENLY, WE SAY GOODBYE,
IN OUR BROKENESS WE CELEBRATE HER,
HER SMILE, HER STRONG CHARACTER,
HER BEAUTY.

SHE LIVES IN OUR MEMORIES, CHERISHED IN OUR HEARTS

IN A DEEP SLEEP, SHE SOFTLY WENT,
SADLY AND DEARLY MISSED,
BUT, OUR ASHLEY IS HOME

WRITTEN BY TARRT-ANNE HOLOEIN
REST IN PEACE ASHLEY, MY HEROINE
