Durban CBD was at a stand-still when SATMA Awards 2017 kick-started their announcement of

lovers from all walks of life.
The parade that started at Gugu Dlamini Extension was attended by MEC’s,
Izinkosi, Izintombi, several brass bands, artists and celebrities.
The 2017 nominees were later announced at a star-studded event at Durban ICC, Kwazulu-Natal on the

to the different categories were recorded in 63 days of the SATMA12 nomination period.
After a stringent vetting process, the list of nominees is now made public.
All the entries were handed over to a panel of independent experts for the judging process.
