ACTRESS Dineo Langa together with funny man Mpho “Popps” Modikoane and TV host Graeme Richards are set to host the 15th South African Film & Television Awards (Saftas) ceremony.
The prestigious awards ceremony will be broadcast on Saturday, May 22, at 7pm on Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 161 and S3, formerly known as SABC3.
Dubbed one of the most star-studded ceremonies on the Mzansi entertainment calendar, the virtual award ceremony will see the industry’s A-listers dressed to the nines, strutting the red carpet before the big event.
Hosting this year’s red carpet is radio and TV personality Lerato Kganyago alongside social media sensation Lasizwe Dambuza.
The red carpet experience will be streamed live on the SAFTAs YouTube Channel on Saturday, May 22, at 6:30pm.
The Craft Awards, set to take place on Friday, May 21, will also be streamed live on the SAFTAs YouTube channel at 7pm.
The event will be hosted by radio personality Tracey Lange and SA’s funny girl and satirist, Coconut Kelz.
Due to Covid-19 regulations, the winners of the awards will be announced virtually by the main hosts, and their awards will be delivered to them a week after the event.
