Television personality and actress Minnie Dlamini will host this year’s Metro FM Music Awards.

But the big question on everyone’s lips is which dress and designer will Minnie pick?

Minnie, the media darling, says she’s going international this time around.

"I've literally had just 24 hours to get my head around this,” she chuckles.

The SABC sport presenter says she has decided to take a totally different approach.

“I had an honour to meet designer Michael Costello while in New York last year,” she reveals.

Minnie says she met Costello through her celebrity stylist, Steve Kinlock – who is based in New York.

“Steven will be arriving next week, with garments from the New York based Costello. And yes there will be as many hair changes as the outfits,” she shares with DRUM.

And Steven is as excited about dressing Minnie. “When Minnie called me up yesterday, I was so excited for the opportunity,” he says.

“Costello for me was just the perfect fit for her as he designs for the curvaceous woman. Think, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Tamar Braxton and that's where Minnie is,” boasts Steven. He says Minnie oozes confidence with her natural glamour and unpredictable yet fearless fashion sense.

Minnie will be hosting the show alongside Metro FM drive-time show host, T-Bo Touch. The awards will be at the Durban ICC next Saturday.

"It was a real honour to get the call from Metro FM, as I've been part of the family since 2012,” she adds. However, the exciting part for this young talent is the awards are in her hometown. And she has memories of hosting a successful 2010 MMA’s with Touch. “So my MMA story is coming full circle.”
