South Africa Television Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) are in their 10th year and some of this year’s winners spoke to us about how they feel about their wins.

Actress Ntathi Moshesh, who walked away with the best actress in a TV drama series for her role in Saints And Sinners, told us that she was thrilled to win the ward, even though “I don’t think I was going to win, because I’m competing with my good friend, Linda Sokhulu”.

Mandla Gaduka, who won best actor in a comedy, said this was his first ever SAFTA nomination and win. “I can’t say I deserve it. I starred in theatre in 2004 and I only got to television in 2014 and it’s different because I don’t have to make a lot of noise”.

Etv drama series Matatiele’s Chamaigne, who won best supporting actress in a TV drama for her role as Norain, told us that she predicted from the beginning that the show would take the award and that “God is good”.
