Chomee performing during the opening ceremony, tweeted by PruLuv.

The 2011 Metro FM Music Awards went down at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Saturday night (26 November) and delivered awards in 20 categories, including a double whammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Both Spikiri and Ray Phiri were honoured for their lifetime achievements while AKA, Zahara and Big Nuz headlined the night with multiple wins.

The ceremony was hosted Tbo Touch and Zizo Beda and opened with a performance by Chomee, Nothende and Theo Kgosinkwe.

As the action unfolded various shenanigans hit the show, most specifically an explosion of behind-the-scenes noise and panic that the audience could overhear.

Of course Twitter vibrated with the noise, with celebrity guests and those listening on the radio tweeting about the sound bolts. Tumisho Masha spent an hour worrying about it ...


... and TVSA blogger Cheesa (@Boni33 on twitter) heard it echoed:

Also loud was Zahara's swing from winner to cringe-moment. The newcomer won two prestigious categories and iced her trophies with a headline performance.

The only problem was that she performed on a swing that flew down from the ceiling and impacted on her singing. TVSA blogger Tazteeq (@narekekana on twitter) was in the action for us and had this to say:


Word from Taz' is that he grabbed lots of pics and gosss so keep a lookout for the sc-ooh-p.

I just want to express my disappointment in SABC1. Last night, 9 December 2011, the Metro FM awards 2011 was broadcasted on tv with much anticipation we watched the awards in hope that we would see the winner of the R&B best album award presented to the onlywinnner from from CAPE TOWN Lloyd Jansen and by some strange events this was edited and cut out of the programe. How disgusting not even a mention - how are we supposed to support every South African artist in this country when some artists are discriminated against and EDITED to suit the needs of others. A formal apology should be announced.
