Although our own Distruction Boyz and Cassper Nyovest did not come away with the award for Best International act, we are proud that a fellow African, Davido, scooped the prize.
Where South African acts are concerned, rapper Sjava was awarded the viewers choice Best International Act. With his most recent prize and a feature on the Black Panther Soundtrack, he is clearly having a stellar year.
Happy Birthday Queen B
The carpet was rolled out this past Saturday at Taboo nightclub in Sandton, Johannesburg in celebration of SA’s top media personality, Bonang Matheba’s, 31st birthday.
With a guest list that included names such as Pinky, Lorna Maseko, Jay Badza, Boity Thulo, Rosette Ncwana, Sefiso Hlongwane and Maps Maponyane amongst others. SA’s A-list went all out to share in the celebrations, starting the evening with a toast of Fleur de Courvoisier, Bonang’s signature cocktail, whilst a pink carpet lead them on their way to a VIP area complete with a pink rose flower-wall and countless pink balloons. All in all the event was everything that you expect for SA’s most beloved Queen.
