16th Annual Metro FM Music Awards

The 16th Annual Metro FM Music Awards is a music Awards ceremony organized by the South African Broadcasting Corporation Radio’s (SABC Radio) commercial station Metro FM and it took place on February 25, 2017 at Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (Durban ICC) in the city of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa.

The main show was preceded by the traditional red carpet hosted by Khaya Dladla, Phat Joe and Sinazo Yolwa. During the red carpet Ntando Duma emerged as one of the most talked about celebrities on the night thanks to her dress while Lerato Kganyago was largely demonized for her suit. The main event was hosted by Pearl Modiadie and Amon Mokoena with Khanyi Mbau and Somizi Mhlongo hosting the pot-acceptance interviews.

Nasty C became the third hip hop artist in a row to emerge as the big winner after Cassper Nyovest two years ago and Emtee a year ago. Nasty C walked away with four awards; Best Hit Single, Best Male, Best Hip Hop and Song of The Year.
