THE South African Mu­sic Awards is an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence where artists and the me­dia get treated like celebri­ties over an en­tire week­end at Sun City. This week­end things were no dif­fer­ent as the who’s who in the mu­sic in­dus­try were dressed to the nines and strut­ted their stuff on the red car­pet.

Zoe Modiga was look­ing el­e­gant in a duo-coloured golden gown, rock­ing her sig­na­ture shaved head. Lyri­cist Gigi La­mayne seemed as if she had stepped off the run­way in a form-fit­ting golden gown with a chic bob cut to match. It was Londie Lon­don’s black fig­ure-hug­ging gown that nearly stole the show. Onto the main cer­e­mony, a smaller crowd was kept en­ter­tained by Mpho Popps, with one of the sur­prise wins go­ing to rap­per Rouge.

Af­ter that, every­one went back to gear up for the night with the stars. Lady Za­mar, Amanda Black and Thami Shobede were among the stars who walked down the red car­pet, putting their best foot for­ward. Open­ing up the night, Kwesta; Ricky Rick; Sun-EL FT and Samthing Soweto shut­ting the show down.

Other pow­er­ful per­for­mances came from crowd puller Shek­inah, who is so com­fort­able on stage she will get you mov­ing. Oth­ers were Shwi, Joe Nina, Prime Cir­cle and Jessica Mban­geni. The mix of awards, mu­sic, fash­ion and crowd com­men­tary made for a beau­ti­ful night.

And the trio Mpho Popps,

Di­neo Ranaka and Somizi did an ex­cep­tional job. Pity Somizi won’t be do­ing this again. Af­ter the in­tense and en­ter­tain­ing night, we were moved to an af­ter-party of all par­ties where stars, win­ners and every­one in be­tween danced the night away.
