On Saturday evening, a constellation of stars and supporting cast were honoured for their outstanding work. The 4th Royalty Soapie Awards celebrated the South African soapie industry in style with comedian Mpho Popps and deejay Lerato LKG Kganyago performing hosting duties.

All of your favourite soapie stars were dressed to the nines, as they gathered to celebrate fellow thespians who were recognised for their commitment to their craft and playing a vital role in the performing arts.

The show kicked things off with the announcement of the winners in the technical categories honouring outstanding editing, lighting, art direction and directing teams in a soapie. Ushered by the sound of award-winning songstress, Shekinah with her track ‘What a Love’.

The creative categories followed paying homage to the writing teams that pens imagination to tell stories loved by viewers alongside the beauty gurus (Make-up & Hair) and fashionistas (Wardrobe) that sets the trends in the make-believe world of soapies.

One of the highlights of this year’s awards show was a special moment with the public vote winner and superfan, Frans Mohale who co-presented the public vote category the Most Popular Soapie of the Year alongside Lootlove.

Another first for The Royalty Soapie Awards was a beautiful ‘In Memoriam’ tribute to all the entertainment artists, pioneers and legends who have left a legacy in the industry remembered through a touching tune from Toya Delazy accompanied by a dance duo’s performance, Thabiso Lekuba and Tholakele Nkala.

Leading the way with a song of hope titled ‘Pieces’ by actresses Siyasanga Papu and Sihle Ndaba who showcased their singing talents and handed the baton to guest presenters, actress Deirdre Wolhuter and diversity advocate, Thando Hopa who had the task of announcing Getroud met Rugby as the winners of the new recognition award, Social Cohesion.

The Background Actor Recognition Award went to Sphiwe Msebe from Isidingo, who was essential in creating the tone, mood and atmosphere of the soapie. Sphiwe always dreamt to be an actor but did not have formal opportunities to make his dream a reality until he became a background actor on Isidingo.

The prestigious category of the evening, the Outstanding Soapie Award closed the chapter of the awards show as Binnelanders bagged the title for 2020 Royalty Soapie Awards.
