The full list of 2016 ANN7 SATY Awards Nominees boasts of outstanding South Africans who have done remarkably well in their different fields.
The ceremony provides a platform to acknowledge their efforts and set a pace for others to follow.
Former host and media icon Bonang Matheba will be reprising her role as the host for the awards ceremony. For the most part, she is very happy to be a part of the show.
Matheba will be joined by her Afternoon Express radio programme co-host Jeannie D. Joop, while Ambassador Jonathan Boynton-Lee will be the thorn among the roses by taking on the role of the red carpet captain for the day.
Now in their 3rd year, the SATY Awards have become one of the most anticipated entertainment events in Mzansi. And to crown it all, this year’s event will be headlined by international pop star Jennifer Lopez. The singer is set to perform in South Africa on November 25 at the Ticketpro Dome.
