South African actress and BET A List host Nomzamo Mbatha wowed in a stunning African themed dress.

The sheer purple Brand Three Sixty creation saw the gorgeous style icon serving chest thanks to the plunging neckline that featured spell binding African prints and details beautifully streaming down to her refined torso.

The Ndebele inspired accessories continued to accentuate her waist, and added a stunning effect on the rest of the dress.

And because she was such a big winner in the style department, Nomzamo Mbatha has already been grabbing headlines in the international press, most notably being featured on the Daily Mail UK.

He may have lost the Best International: Africa award to Wizkid, but Nasty C still made the most of his time at the show. Just days after delivering some pretty sick freestyle bars on Sway In The Morning , the 20 year old Juice Back hitmaker was pretty excited on the red carpet as he caught up with Nomzamo Mbatha.

SAMAs Are Switching Up A Few Categories Because Things Have Evolved

Published

on

The South African Music Awards have announced a few changes to some category names to include more artists who’s contributions might have been easily blackballed. As calls for entries for next year’s gong shindig continue gaining momentum, a more diverse pool of artist may now approach the table:

Best Rap Album has changed to Best Hip Hop Album. The renaming allows for Hip Hop DJs to enter their albums in addition to Rap residing in this category. We can already think of a few DJs who will soon be giving rappers a run for their money in this hotly contested category.

Best African Adult has changed to Best African Adult Contemporary Album. The category does not carry language exclusion.

Best Africa Artist has changed to Best African Artist.  This has also been made a special category so that South African artists can enter their works and compete for the bragging rights of being named the best artist in the African continent.

The Best Kwaito Album category name has not been changed, but its definition has expanded to include Gqom, New Age Kwaito, Amapiano and other types of Kwaito subcategory music available in the country.
