The highly anticipated 23rd South African Music Awards had the entire Twitterverse in storm, for both good and bad reasons.


The awards ceremony took place on May 27 at the Sun City Super Bowl, and saw the top names in the South African music and entertainment industry all under one roof.
If you didn’t watch the show everyone is talking about, then grab a cup of coffee, sit back and indulge, as we lay down our Top 5 moments of the night.

1. Somizi and Tumi

Somizi and Tumi Morake
We had predicted that these two would be the most amazing hosts in the history of the SAMAs, and they proved us right!

We can definitely say that these two have earned the nation’s respect and are now UP there.

2. Commercial breaks? Not live!
If you thought that everything stops during commercial breaks then you haven’t been to a show hosted by Somizi! He kept audiences entertained during commercials and had them jamming to old struggle songs.

3. Kwesta

Can we get a #HuuuSham for this one? The heavens finally answered our prayers and blessed our fave @KwestaDaKAR ‏ with 6 awards, including Best Male Artist of the Year and Best Album of the Year, following his #4millionviews4ngud milestone. We can soundly say that its Kwestas time and he is finally getting the recognition he deserves. This had fans all over the country congratulating the artist.


4. Memes
By now we all know that our celebrities go on the red carpet knowing that they are going to be roasted for either what they are wearing or what they are going to say. The response on social media came as no surprise as everyone, including Somizi, was made fun of.
