She received more than 50% of the votes in what is the most prestigious category of the Awards.  The winners were voted for by Channel24 readers, celebrity fans and followers.

 “Social media is such an integral part of our lives. We know that it has the power to start a movement and change the world. It’s also a great source of fun and entertainment,” says Herman Eloff, Channel24 editor.
