The good, the bad and the ugly

2010-11-28 09:07

The 10th annual Metro FM Music Awards got off to a slow start, kicking off an hour later than scheduled.

The zebra carpet procession was a parade of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the fashion world. The hemlines were short, the mkhabas big, the men’s floral shirts blousy and Khanyi MMbau in a Jeff International high slit evening gown a mega hit.

Some men sported the cringeworthy sunglasses and high-coloured shirts while others – especially the Durban kwaito stars – were the ultimate ghetto new money cool in their preppy outfits and shiny suits.

Dineo Ranaka from Yfm walked the carpet in a peach playsuit with nipples sticking out a la Britney Spears while Katlego Danke of Generations played it safe and sexy in a backless lace black mini dress.

Prosper Nkaiwa and kwaito bad girl girlfriend Tina (no surname) almost blinded the crowd in their loud shiny cream creations. Bikers roared into the stadium, signaling the start of the show.

Metro FM’s DJ Sbu and Azania were the unsurprising hosts, the eyebrow-raising fact being Sbu without sunglasses and Aza minus the weave. Her hobo chic outfit, however, traumatised more than a few people.

The night was long with 20 categories on the bill. The Mbombela stadium in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, might not have been ­anywhere close to full, but those who were there had a fantastic time.

The Best Dance Album went to Blackcoffee who was in Canada. It was the night of the DJs as Lulo Cafe took Best Compilation Album. David ­Tlale presented the Best Styled Artist/Group with Noni Gasa.

One of the well deserved wins DJ Kent and Relo for Best ­Collaboration and Simphiwe Dana for Best Contemporary Jazz album.

Dana, in a figure-hugging black dress with ­outstitching, thanked her ­children, mother and partner for being the inspiration behind her music.
