The #DstvMVCA (Dstv Mzansi Viewer’s Choice Awards) winners were announced last night at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Over 1 million votes were cast for 50 nominees in 10 categories, as South African viewers made their voices heard.
The awards were hosted by Radio & TV Personality, Bonang Matheba. Legendary jazz maestro, Hugh Masekela, was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award handed to him by M-Net CEO, Yolisa Phahle.
Anna Dithane walked off with R50 000 after being named the 1Life Life Changer for uplifting her community. Another R50 000 went to Eugene Dithane, who nominated his community warrior mother.
Viewers who voted also got a slice of the cake when one was rewarded with a brand-new Kia Picanto worth R150 000 after being randomly selected via an audited process. Another lucky voter found themselves with a R100 000 Vodacom World Shopping Experience after predicting the Song of the Year.
