The Westcliff Hotel was where it all happened last night, as Nandi Madida and Ayanda Thabethe announced the top-20 movers and shakers of Mzansi.
Nandi, you certainly are glowing!
Since the celebs honored were the cream of the crop, it is no secret that we were all waiting to see what they had draped themselves in and of course the people of SA had their opinions on fleek.
The world of Twitter did not procrastinate to share their feelings on Queen B’s slip-dress ensemble.

Oh Riky, even though they poking fun at you – you know how to push the fashion boundaries – Oh King of Gucci. Congratulations on winning the top honour for BET A-list Most Stylish Musician!
The night was made for the stars and the people honored by BET were those influential South Africans who would be on the top of every event list this year and making waves in the industry.
It was cool to see Connie and Shona Ferguson strutting their stuff on the red carpet and looking quite spectacular doing so. This couple has been in the industry for a number of years, still going strong and continuing to do amazing things for TV.
AKA was among the guest invited – after all, his lady was honored as best Radio and TV personality. He stayed off the red carpet, though, stating that he was off for the night. So cute he is, acknowledging it as B’s night.
