Damme, Mroza, you did it!

CityPress - - News -

It was the week for packed par­ties as hun­dreds of celebs and fans crammed The Sound Room in Kyalami, north­ern Jozi, for the SABC Sum­mer Song of the Year 2016 prize han­dover on Tues­day night.

Ev­ery­one who is any­one in the mu­sic in­dus­try came to the event, with a good few hun­dred guests who were a mix­ture of fans and celebri­ties.

The celebs in at­ten­dance were dressed to the nines, wear­ing the kind of glam­our just short of what would be ex­pected at the Sa­mas.

Among the more fa­mous faces in at­ten­dance – though not nom­i­nated for the award – were DJ Sbu, Kelly Khu­malo, and Arthur Mafokate, who de­clined to have City Press pho­to­graph him. (Gosh, I won­der what we did!) He looked busy, work­ing the room and net­work­ing up a storm.

The line-up of per­form­ers was im­pres­sive, with nom­i­nee Babes Wo­dumo bring­ing down the house with an im­pres­sive per­for­mance, de­spite hav­ing per­formed three days ear­lier at a Su­perS­port event. Also on stage were Musa and Rob­bie Malinga, King Mon­ada, Kwesta and SABC Sum­mer of the Year 2016 win­ner Mroza.

When asked about the mean­ing be­hind his song Sob­u­lala uVan Damme, Mroza said that it was about over­com­ing hard­ship.

Mroza, who comes from ru­ral KwaZulu-Natal, took to the stage with ease, telling the crowd that he is still young and that he knows he is des­tined for even big­ger things.

The event’s MCs, TV pre­sen­ters Lerato Kganyago and Andile Ncube, also killed it.
