SAMAs Fashion explosion
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.
