PICTURES: #SAMA23 showstopper looks


Sun City was a hive of activity as the 23rd South African Music Awards were underway –  and where there’s a glitzy event, there’s a red carpet. Mzansi’s A-listers, particularly the ladies, didn’t disappoint. From Bonang Matheba in a red-hot number to Nomzamo Mbatha’s elegant white frock, we chose five looks that owned the night.
