Happy Sweet 16 to the MTN South African Music Awards!!!

All roads led to Sun City Super Bowl for the 16th annual MTN South African Music Awards this past weekend! The awards were once again hosted by the cute-as-heck and downright funny Trevor Noah. As usual he did not disappoint, and made sure that the audience chuckled all night long.
