With this year’s theme being solid and fabulous, guests did not disappoint and brought their fashion A-game. Setting off the star-studded evening in true glitz and glam, the entrance to the Market Theatre was transformed into a pink floral wonderland. Pink Carpet hosts Rorisang Thandekiso, Zanele Potelwa and Ayanda Makuzeni welcomed guests as they entered the precinct.

Leading the wins for the evening, Amapiano musician Lady Du bagged 2 awards, the Fag Hag of the Year and shared Best Musician with Limpopo goddess Makhadzi. Giyani’s Wiseman Zitha took the Hunk of the Year while Best Styled Award was shared by former Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi and SA fashion sensation Rich Mnisi.
