Johannesburg - Mzansi Magic has announced the nominees for the second ever DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards.

The announcement was made on Tuesday at the DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards (DMVCA) launch event held at Summer Place in Hyde Park, the Gqom sensation, Distruction Boyz, and their smash hit, Omunye the dynamic Durban duo commanded the spotlight. 

They also lead the nominees list with an impressive three nods; for Song of the Year, Favourite Rising Star and Favourite Music Artist/Group.

Nipping close at the heels with two nominations each are Prince Kaybee and Kagiso Rabada. The house music master and Proteas fast bowler have been making waves and raking in the silverware respectively.

Prince Kaybee is nominated in the Song of the Year and Favourite DJ categories, while Rabada appears in the Favourite Sports Personality of the Year and Favourite Personality of the Year lists.

Rabada will have to beat stiff competition from media darling Bonang Matheba, crowd favourite Papa Penny Ahee, Mzansi sweetheart Nomzamo Mbatha and the flamboyant reality TV star Somizi Mhlongo.

Last year, fan favourite Thembisa Mdoda walked away with the gong for Mzansi’s ultimate favourite personality, a hotly contested category that had fans furiously casting a combined one million votes across categories.

This year there is the addition of a new category, Favourite Personality of the Year, which will be awarded to a personality that has gone above and beyond to have an impact in our society.

There’s also a hardworking and dedicated community leader. This is a person who has worked tirelessly and passionately for the betterment of their community to create positive change. Not only will they be honoured at the ceremony, but will also receive a cash prize of R50 000 (Fifty Thousand Rands) as a thank you.

Fans will be able to vote in 11 categories and the nominee with the most votes out of all the categories will be named the ultimate viewers’ choice. Voting is open from Tuesday, 14 August at 18:00 until an unspecified date in November. It is unclear as yet when the awards will take place.
