Channel O Awards with Mika Stefano

The Channel O Awards were held in Sandton for a second year in a row… This Channel O Awards will be my 5th Channel O Awards (if I counted correctly…) They have fast become one of my highlights on the social calendar. I remember my first O Awards were at the Joburg Civic Theatre. I remember gate crashing them, with the late Lebo. She said to me, chomi, if you look the part, then you will always get in… And that has been my motto to date…

The highlight of these Channel O Awards was the live V-Entertainment on the red carpet crossover.

Here you can see the ever so pretty Lalla interviewing our hosts for the evening, Banky W and Dineo.

Lalla looked stunning as usual… I presume she was wearing a David Tlale creation as usual.

Joining Lalla on the Live red carpet was Mr Swag, himself, Siya aka Scoop. He looked cool in a pair of leather pants. Must have been a bit sticky… With the heat and the lights, but they looked good on the guy…

I attended the awards with my radio show co host, Saz. (apparently he caused a stir, when people saw him on the Channel O repeat of the red carpet)…
Here we are with the man of the moment, Banky W.
We asked him what he had to say about hosting the Awards, and this is what he had to say.

But he is just so sexy… My gosh! And he is such a cool guy. And he follows me on Twitter. Banky W was nominated with my girl, LeAnne for most gifted R&B video. But Banky W scooped the award…

LeAnne may have not walked away with an award, but she was thrilled to be nominated, especially against such great artists. She also presented an award…

Uyanda Mbuli was wearing Sylvester Falata. This lady knows how to work the red carpet… She should have been in Howza’s Hustla music video…

My girl, Lira was also wearing Sylvester Falata… Sylvester must have been a busy guy a week before the awards. Lira won the award for most gifted female video. Apparently it was her first Channel O win, after several nominations. A well deserved win if you ask me, I love the Phakade music video, all 9minutes of it…

Nominated in the same category, we had first time Channel O nominee, Stella. (Stella also known as STL in the orange dress) also performed her hit song, Lookie Lookie. (Love this song…)
On the left of the above pic, we have another newish artist, Shaay. She made us all laugh when she complained whilst reading the auto cue. “Its too small, I cant see..” Hahaha, But it was small.

Someone else who got the party started was my firm favorite, Cabo Snoop… He got the whole O-rena dancing to Windeck. What a performer…

South African rapper, L-Tido also performed with K.O.  and then the sexy Banky W joined him for their colab, Its not my Fault.Tokello, L-Tido’s girlfriend looked gorgeous in her lace dress… Thumbs Up!

But a big Thumbs Down to L-Tido, who came to the after party, holding his “costume change”… Not a good look… Hahaha, still love you tho… Just a suggestion for 2012, leave the change in the change room…

Another South African rapper, AKA walked away with the hip hop video of the year award… He was also a part of the “Hip Hop Show Down” with some of Africa’s greatest Hip Hop artists, including Navio, Ice Prince and Khuli Chana.
I must admit the show down was an awesome way to kick off the “sporty” themed awards show.

Mr Knin Big Deal, Naeto C also walked away with an award for his video 10 over 10.

Ma Eeee from Teargas looked cool in a denim jacket and red skinni’s. He is such a clown…

Tumi rocked a bow tie in a very creative way…

Trevor was also there and he almost pulled a Kanye West, when Kwesta’s music video didnt win…

This is what happens when you invite Mzanzi Magic to a Channel O Event…

Tibz, who is the guy behind Showlove Music looked simple in a black suit. Funny thing, is he was almost gonna wear my outfit…lol… imagine if both Tibz and Mika Stefano wore the same outfit….lol…

DJ Switch was wearing his well known pair of stunna’s… He’s hosting a Boogie Nights themed party this weekend, should be interesting, if people dress up…

Shugasmakx, who is dropping his own CD soon, gave me a shout out during his interview… “Great South African Blog” I think he said…

Slikour was all dressed up. I dont like the shirt he wore with the suit, but I like the suit. Like the zips…

Channel O presenter and Trans Africa DJ, SK looked cool in a pale blue jacket. He attended the awards with his brother. I agree with a friend of mine, he shouldnt have popped the collar. He also wore red for his after party outfit…

Another Trans Africa DJ, Saz complained that people on the streets thinks he looks like Flavour. So I had to put the two of them together, to see if its true… I dont think they look a like…
Flavour was overwhelmed by a mob of fans.. Everyone, including me, wanted a picture with him… Sadly I wasnt lucky enough to get a pic with him.

Even fellow blogger, Lelo B was gaga over Nwa Baby.

I must admit, Lelo looked gorgeous in what I assume is a David Tlale creation…

Ex YOTV presenter wore an old Channel O T shirt that she cut up and styled up in her own unique way. Very edgy…

The happy couple looked happy together…

How pretty did Cece look…

Another happy couple, ex Channel O presenter, Mbali Enhle and her hubby, Black Coffee left early as their baby was waiting at home… He was nominated for best dance video. Perhaps they would have stayed longer, if he won?

Sexy model, Precious looked stunning in a gold dress… It looks like you have to peel the dress off. Looks so sexy…

Phello Bala was also there… Whats happening with his album? The 4 songs I heard were awesome… But the whole album? whats the digaga? Album launch, no album?

Zwai Bala and Melanie Bala looked cute together. Wonder what she will be wearing for the Metro FM Awards. (She has to go big)I know she is friends with Thula Sindi. Perhaps he will design her dress for Metro’s.

Mokgadi looked gorgeous in a Thula Sindi creation…

Sexy rapper, Ricky… I loved his watch…

Morale wore denim on denim… and was on his phone a lot… He is nominated for a Metro FM Award. Wonder what he will wear?

He attended with YFM’s Eda Rose. (She has to be one of the quickest nobody’s turned into celebrity’s ever – MovesLikeJagger)

Miss SA sat in the front row… I wonder who her date for the evening was? Looked a bit like her brother…

Ex Big Brother contestant, Lerato looked spunky with her new hair style… (ThumbsUp)

Ex YFM presenter, Lee Kasumba. She works with Channel O apparently. Doing all the West African artists.

Kwesta looked dashing in his navy suit. Craze presenter, Mo looked … bold…

Model, Kendra looked gorgeous as usual.

Phuti looked a bit over dressed for the awards, unless she has a show coming out on Channel O? Liked her hair… Look at Ifani tryna photo bomb the situation…

Channel O presenter, KB has now cut his dreads. He attended with his wife to be…

Master Of Rhythm judge, Jay looked HOT in a tight fitting shirt… The Kayembe boys are sexyness… I think Vuzu should give them a show. Keeping up with the Kayembe’s

DJ Dimples wore a velvet jacket…

R&B singer Nothende wore animal print… She couldnt stop dancing… Wish she shaved those pits…

Oupa was all over, capturing a few scoops for the papers…

A special well done to the hottest new “IT” girl, Dineo, who together with Banky W hosted the Channel O Awards. She did an amazing job. I Must say I didnt like her pink pant jump suit. She had 5 or so changes. Loved the animal print, her red carpet dress, her final dress and the above cocktail dress.
Her hair, however, fast became a trending topic. Funny thing is Nonhel released her hair range during the awards. Dineo could have done with this prior to the show. But besides the bad weave, she was amazing!!!

Also a big Well Done to Solly Moeng, of Channel O, who together with his amazing team put together this well run Channel O Awards.

But you need to explain one thing, who picked the promotion boys?

Ya… Not a sexy look…

Altho the girls looked sexy… (this is for my straight guy readers…lol…)
A B or C?

Overall the awards were a great success. Well run, awesome performances and just a lot of fun…
Well done…
