THEY came, they saw and they conquered. The names everyone thought would win, did: Black Coffee, Simphiwe Dana and Professor emerged as the top winners at the 10th Metro FM Music Awards held at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Black Coffee, nominated for Best-produced and Best Dance albums, came out smiling as he won both awards.

Simphiwe Dana was named Best Female Artist and her Kulture Noir was awarded Best Contemporary Jazz Album.

Professor’s foot-stomping Jezebel earned him the Song of the Year award. He also walked away with Best Kwaito Album.

Bryce Anderson, formerly of Pietermaritzburg, won the Best R&B album.

Best Group Album went to Liquideep, who also won Best Selling Download Song for Fairy Tale.

The award of the evening, Song of the Decade, went to Mafikizolo.
