Cape Town - Controversial local entertainer Skolopad collapsed during the South African Music Awards, (Samas) and was carried out of the Sun Arena on a stretcher, on Saturday.

Skolopad, who arrived at the award show late and almost missed the red carpet, told The Juice: "Due to driving [from the Free State], I was tired. That day I didn't eat or drink anything. So, I think that I was also hungry. I was nervous, and when I'm nervous then I can't eat."

Staying true to her signature style, Skolopad turned heads in a sheer black gown. She sat next to Dr. Malinga throughout the show.

The singer, who made headlines for her catchy tune Don't Touch earlier this year, said she started to feel light-headed before Shekhinah took to the stage.   

Fortunately, the 34-year-old mother of one didn't have to be hospitalised, saying: "They [paramedics] took me aside, and had me checked out. I rested there, and then they took me to the hotel room."

Skolopad says she is feeling "okay," adding: "I arrived home last night and will be going to work tomorrow."
