The DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards (DMVCAs) are back, following a two-year pause due to the pandemic.

The awards, which are a celebration of local talent, will be held at Sun Arena in Pretoria on June 25 and will also be broadcast live on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161).

The DMVCAs will honour top achievers over the past two years in television, radio, music, sports and comedy.

Winners are determined by the public through voting.

Lawrence Maleka will host the fourth instalment of the popular awards show. Maleka is owning the screens at the moment, having recently hosted Big Brother Mzansi.

“The River“ actor is a vibrant presenter who is more than capable of hosting a star-studded evening such as this. Viewers love his charm and humour and we can agree he is good to look at.

The nominees this year are certainly diverse and it’s so refreshing to see that the stars who have been making waves and trending for their work have gotten nods.

Showmax’s “The Wife” actors Bonko Khoza Kwenzo Ngcobo, Abdul Khoza and Zikhona Sodlaka have been nominated. Unfortunately Hlomu who portrayed Mbalenhle Mavimbela did not make the list.

Actress Connie Ferguson has been nominated among Shauwn Mkhize, DBN Gogo, Lasiwe and Makhadzi for the highly converted title of “Favourite personality”.

Amapiano acts Young Stunna, Daliwonga, Kabza de Small and DJ Maphorisa have also bagged nominations.

The ‘Favourite song’ category is filled with stiff competition with songs such as Big Zulu’s Imali Eningi and Zakes Bantwini Osama bagging nominations and it’s hard to forget the impact those songs had and still do.

Voting via the MyDStv App and on www.mzansimagic.tv/dstvmvca closes on the 11th of June 2022.

This is the complete list of nominees for the 2022 DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards:
