This years 4th annual Royal Soapie Awards show was pre-recorded, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The show was aired on SABC 1 on Saturday 26 September at 8pm, hosted by Lerato Kganyago and Mpho Popps. The nights biggest winners were “Gomora”, “The River” and “The Queen”.
Legendary filmmaker & producer Angus Gibson took home the Lifetime Achievement Award.
“When I received the nomination, I was a little taken aback.
“I thought the Lifetime Achiever award, I thought that was for old people, at the end of their career. I thought that’s why Zola calls me, ‘Madala’.
“I suppose I have to accept that I’m on the old side of things but I’m not accepting that I’m at the end of my career. I think that there’s a whole lot ahead. So thank you so much, everybody, greatly appreciated.”
The Founder and CEO of the Royal Soapie Awards, Winnie Ntshaba looked stunning dressed by Keletso Moraba.
