BET A-List is a South African lifestyle and entertainment magazine show in which the hosts unpack everything from fashion to music, movies and more, covering red carpet events and interviewing A-Listers from home and abroad.

The honourees of the inaugural BET A-list were revealed by BET A-List hosts Nandi Madida and Ayanda Thabethe on Wednesday 7 September at The Westcliff, Johannesburg, with the ambition to make it an annual event.
Described by the channel as "the definitive list of 2016's South Africa movers and shakers" the series covers achievers from sports to entrepreneurship, music, fashion, film, television, literature and more.
The list was compiled and curated by BET's in house programming and talent team, focusing on achievers who best exemplify contemporary achievement and who are making a huge impact in their personal field of endeavour.
