When are the Mzansi Magic VC awards and who is hosting them? I have had just about enough of their ads on TV for votes

 Scorpio - they're happening on Saturday 14 March so still other seven weeks. 

The host hasn't been confirmed yet but Bonang hosted the last two so it could be her if she hasn't uppped her fee too much.

An update: Bonang's out and Minnie Dlamini's in as the this year's host.

Clearly Bonang charges too much or she's over DStv after the non-event of her reality show which they tucked away on 1Magic so too few people could see it.
