Congrats to all winners and nominees! the awards were great....production was on point! Yo Donald pulled Rebecca Malope on us ....Sis Rebecca is influencial...!

24 Feb 2013 12:45

Yeah the show was excellent jealous down bathong.....even the winners derseved. Thank God Unathi and Amon combo did not win anything. Fairness at its best

24 Feb 2013 18:02

Felt so bad Toya didn't win anything. For a change thanks Ezase Afro didn't win anything. Was so happy for Professor and Zakwe. What really do people see in Khaya Mthethwa he is not as good as Toya. The Ministers and Mayors they should understand its not their show and its not about them. They want to steal the show by recognizing who is present as if we care.

24 Feb 2013 19:27

Doctor Malinga is crazy. It shows that he was hungry for this opportunity, he got it, now he grabbing it with both his hands.

25 Feb 2013 00:17

Really? Khaya Mthethwa! I voted him kwi idols but ha.a uyadika lamfana usuke acinge ukuba yipro!

25 Feb 2013 01:05

I'm also dissapointed Toya didn't win anything. I was glad when Zakwe won though. Khaya's single is not as WOW as his Idols performances. uyandidika ngoku.

25 Feb 2013 08:29

donald pulling the Aus Ribs was ..............really?
Arthur and his 2sec speech....................ud swear twas not the 1st tym he scooped sumting

Nhlanhla's outfit.....................

can Khaya pls release a gospel album and be nominated on crown, haibo tht award shud hv gone to Toya atlist........

who is Berita.

25 Feb 2013 09:31

i dont feel khaya/unathi.....Dr malinga his into business n i love it.

25 Feb 2013 09:56

Doctor Malinga is crazy. It shows that he was hungry for this opportunity, he got it, now he grabbing it with both his hands. 

This is beyong true.

25 Feb 2013 10:00

Doctor Malinga is crazy. It shows that he was hungry for this opportunity, he got it, now he grabbing it with both his hands. 

TRUE. He is milking it for all its worth!

.... and good for him.
Showbiz is very fleeting ...
Milk it , or it milks you !

25 Feb 2013 10:07

I enjoyed the show.  Happy for Zakwe and Zonke, sorry about Toya and Moneoa not winning.  Does anyone know why The Soil was not nominated?

25 Feb 2013 10:18

Really? Khaya Mthethwa! I voted him kwi idols but ha.a uyadika lamfana usuke acinge ukuba yipro!

If you watch Clash of the choirs on 161 you'll realise that he's actually good with music. Better than Thembi Seete and Winnie.

25 Feb 2013 10:29

Toya deserved the best newcomer award not this dude

25 Feb 2013 10:42

Hi Guys/Gals

i can see ii boys ze Big nuzz can wash at last  and Oskito, well done !!

25 Feb 2013 10:46

Morning every1.

Cant get over Dr Malinga's perfomance. The guy is my hero tjooo...

25 Feb 2013 12:11

Good morning guys!

Tyma Berita is the new beautiful kiddo. She came to SA to study in WSU. I think she is from Zim and i think she is 21 or 22. Oh I love her. She is awesome!

The Metros were great but i think they should change  to South African Blacks Award. 

I'm happy with the winners esp for Zonke, Berita, Mr DramaKing Donald (he must try acting after that scene), Zakwe bathong not forgeting Oskido shame. Yho akaphaphi intombi ye kwirikwitsi (tsa mandebele). I kept looking at her mouth while she was talking. 

I never heard of the Banana Muffins. 

I'm not happy about Khaya & AKA. I thought Toya was gonna take that 1. I'm not her fan but she is better than Khaya. u-AKA there is something i dont like about him. I think he is full of himself. Uyazifonela maan!

Im with u guys about Unathi. My prayers were answered. I mean her nolali song is not great. Even a deaf can prove that. I love her on my airwaves not singing.

I LOVE DR REDBULL MALINGA! I wish he doesn't change. Those kicks and those jumps! He must invite all the Durban boys. It seems they are competing with imikhaba.

25 Feb 2013 12:15

Oh uMinnie uthathe into kamamakhe yo decorata wayithwala. What was that???? 

I thought of ifeatherduster kama.

25 Feb 2013 12:55

Speedywithout a towel. Yay....wait he replaced his towel with a doek *sigh*.

I like Khaya but he did not deserve the award.
Oh I was very happy when Ndiyo ndiyo didnt get the nod, along with his coleagues.
Him and Ganyani look alike.

25 Feb 2013 13:43

did u guyz  notice tht Minnie lost weight ?????????

25 Feb 2013 15:04

If you watch Clash of the choirs on 161 you'll realise that he's actually good with music. Better than Thembi Seete and Winnie.

@vesa I do agree with you Khaya is very good and I can see him being a producer as well.

well the public voted for him just like they voted on Idols, ene what's wrong with igospeli kanti, Kaya's crime is that he started with gospel I don't see ppl complaining about Loyiso n all the other musicians branching into gospel from kwaito n other genres , stop boxing umtana ka mfundisi

Toya's girlfriend looks so Portia De Rossi I wonder uButhelezi ungcinga ntoni nga lento yo mzukulwana wakhe

Minnie's dresses look great mara the hairdos don't do justice


25 Feb 2013 15:04

Proffessor where did u get tht uniform?????

26 Feb 2013 07:49

@myname...I'm not happy about Khaya & AKA. I was not happy at all..Earlier on the awards day AKA tweeted that he won all awards he was ever nominated. And Metros made his head bigger

Khaya must just switch to GOSPEL and his presence in music industry will be felt. Eish Toya should have won something at least. Unathi must decline nominations in future.

26 Feb 2013 09:50

@Makisto....are we gonna wait till Jesus for umgosi, hayi kudala silindile.

26 Feb 2013 14:22

hayi ngiyazifela ngo Toya Delazy bandla, ohk ngize ngibone ubuso ba William Lehong i fell in love with his voice nje kudala. I have no words for AKA aka Mr. Arrogant!

03 Mar 2013 08:43

I was happy Zonke , Zakwe ,Proffesor and Khaya won They are very talented .oh not forgetting Oskido wow Kalawa did well last year . My biggest disappointment was Toya being nominated so many times and wangathola niks we failed her as her fans shame for not voting !
