The annual event was upon us once again. The red carpet is an opportunity for the artists to show off how stylish (or not so stylish) they are. We managed to capture some of the headliners at the event.

The brothers of Sauti Soul had four nominations to their name.
Babes Wodumo looked stunning in her red dress. She was up for Song Of The Year.
South Africa’s athletic hero, Caster Semenya, made an appearance at the awards.
Rapper, Emtee, decided to do it differently. He brought his partner and son, who looks like a natural.
Nomuzi looking fierce.
Song Of The Year, Best Collaboration (with Sarkodie), Best Male... These were the categories that the orange-clad Patoranking was nominated for.
Bonang elegantly graced the red carpet in a black dress. She was announced as this year’s host.
Yemi Alade was up for Best Female and possibly outfit of the night.
Nasty C was nominated for Best Breakthrough and for his feature on the Video Of The Year.
