Ndoda was awarded Best Presenter and Ultimate Viewers’ Choice.
“Tonight I just wanted to look regal, elegant and open. The universe must know that I’m at peace,” Mdoda said.
Isithunzi siren Thuso Mbedu brought a pop of colour in a yellow Antherline dress, while Pearl Thusi kept it simple, yet sexy, in a white Casper Bosman gown.
