This year’s 2010 MTN SAMA’s were a spectacle to watch, from the crazy to the uber fab… (although in my opinion, nothing beats the 2009 award show were host Trevor Noah came on stage wearing the traditional Zulu gear with a guitar at hand “memories”).

Big Nuz were arguably the best to beat on the night; Lira is just too good for her fellow artists so far and Black Coffee deserved all his awards after keeping the dance floors busy with “Juju”.


The yellow carpet was a mixture of color with assorted gowns and suits.

And what is the Red Carpet…um I mean Yellow Carpet without Khanyi Mbau & her sidekick, designer/stylist, Jeff??

Khanyi Mbau

Designer Gert Coetzee did a superb job on Bonang Matheba’s dresses (who was the best dressed female). Jozi looked “fresh to def” and cleaned up, Teargas were also looking “WOW”!  The Parlotones looked snazzy in red and black and Sizwe Dlomo just gave James Bond a run for his money.

Bonang & Gert

Bonang (her make-up was bananas!)

And of course the usual suspects were there, (those who caused us to roll our eyes a few times in disbelief at what they were wearing)

Thandiswa Mazwai looked rather odd and “insect-like” in an indescribable dress and hairdo, Camagwini pulled a Lady Gaga on us and now holds the nickname “Lady Kaka” (LOL)! Winnie Khumalo gave an awesome performance but eish that dress was a huge miss (looked like she was wrapped in a black garbage bag, not a good sight!), and the ever soulful Unathi Nkayi looked a little too uncomfortable in a tight short dress that she battled to walk in.

Jozi and Kelly Rowland (who was not present) closed off the show with their 2010 World Cup song, ft Slikour, 2Face from Nigeria, and other artist from all over Africa.

Da Les & Slikour

I’m guessing the departure from the MTN SAMA’s with the 2010 song meant that all roads now lead to Mzansi for the 2010 World cup.

There was drama, laughter (thanks to Trevor), song and dance at this year’s SAMA’s. South African artists came out in style and walked away with a massive goodie bag worth R20 000….

From your girl, Allegro, peace, I’m out!
