Samas outdone themselves!

From stage performers to artists from psychedelic lights to jaw-breaking stage. Brilliant combination of hardwork and efforts by the organizers. Big up!

The only snag were two female presenters on the carpet who seemed to be contradicting themselves. We hope such amateurish behavior will never feature on our “Grammys” next year.   

Hangers-on, groupies and all and sundry came in droves to welcome the SAMAs having been brought back after a hiatus at the ceremonial venue.

With the public encouraged to vote for their choice of province to host the event next year, will Sun- City be the obvious choice once again?

However, security needs to be beefed up in such events due to its magnitude. This is as a result of pick-pocketing and theft which was the order of the evening.

My cousin’s fiancé was a victim having lost her mobile.

Pre-parties on Sunday evening hosted by both SABC1 and Metro fm were a blast and unforgettable experience!

Forbidden waters, hospitality and beautiful ones- flowed until wee hours of the morning resulting in some peeps -whom I shall not mention- taking out next to the parking lot. S’mogo…
