This weekend, some of the biggest names in the South African entertainment industry gathered at Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga for the Metro FM Music Awards 2024.

The event, which was held on Saturday night and was hosted by ProVerb and Loot Love, saw South African DJ and record producer, Kabza De Small reigning supreme at the ceremony, as he won four accolades.

And while music was of the focus of the gathering, fashion was also in the spotlight as guests dressed according to the theme, “Black To The Future”.

Here are some of the best and worst dresses stars at Freedom Day’s Metro FM Music Awards 2024.

Best dressed

Loot Love

The media personality and Metro FM weekday host, whose real name is Luthando Shosha, stole the show with each of her six striking outfits.

They were all made by local designers and she was styled by her friend, Siyamthanda Ndube.

Her bold red cone-sleeved corset and palazzo pants ensemble, designed by Amkelo Jiyane, was amongst the best looks on the night.

DJ Lamiez Holworthy-Morule

The green room host dazzled in a Masango by Siphosihle Masango black dress.

The gown featured beads on the bodice, while the tattoo sleeve added flair to the DJ and television presenter’s stunning look.

Siyanda Bani

The award-winning content creator oozed class in a black mermaid skirt with a metallic corset. Nailing the event’s theme, she certainly understood the assignment.

Mpumi Mlambo

The radio host and voice-over artist looked stunning in a Zama Swazi monochrome gown.

And while her look could have focused on just the bow or the beads, she still looked gorgeous.

The local musician’s fashion game has improved significantly recently, which was evident in her choice of ensamble at the event.

She looked superb in her black fishtail dress, with velvet gloves elevating her overall look.

Worst dressed

Eulanda “Yolanda” Monyai

Former “Big Brother Mzansi: Syamosha” housemate, Eulanda “Yolanda” Monyai, underwhelmed at the awards show with her black leather dress and red boots.

Zanele Potelwa

The media personality failed to impress at the gathering with her choice of outfit.

Many questioned if the unflattering red material was a top or dress and why she chose to pair it with brown leggings.

Papa Ghost and Andile Ncube

This duo might have had an idea in mind with their black carpet looks, but it didn’t land quit.

Ncube’s jacket looked like it was made from cheap silk and the former “Big Brother Mzansi: Syamosha” housemate, failed to bring personality to the clothes he was wearing.
