Best dressed celebs at the Basadi in Music Awards 2022

The first-ever Basadi in Music Awards (BIMAs) took place this weekend at the Gallagher Estate Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

Founded by entertainment entrepreneur and public relations professional Hloni Modise-Matau, the awards are aimed to honour and celebrate women in music.

The event was hosted by by rapper and TV presenter Nomuzi Mabena as well as actress and media personality Anele Zondo.

“The first iteration of the Basadi in Music Awards was incredible to behold,” said Modise-Matau. “It was a phenomenal evening of women celebrating the contribution that has been made by other women. We are also honoured to have presented awards to all our recipients tonight and of course we are so grateful to the performers and guest presenters who brought magic to the inaugural BIMA stage. It was truly an extraordinary experience, and we are looking forward to start planning BIMA2.”

Broadcasters Lamiez Holworthy and Lerato Kganyago were the biggest winners of the night, both walking away with two accolades each.

Holworthy received the DJ of the Year and Music TV Presenter of the Year accolades while Kganyago won the Entertainment Radio Presenter of the Year and Mosadi in Business Achievement awards alongside DJ Zinhle and Lerato Kganyago.

Other winners included Boohle, who won the SAMPRA Amapiano Artist of the Year Award, DBN Gogo, who won Artist of the Year, and Yvonne Chaka Chaka who was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The inaugural event was packed with a star-studded lineup of A-list guests who brought some A-list fashion to the red carpet.

The likes of Boity Thulo, Loot Love, Nadia Nakai, and Thato Mokoena all made an appearance and rose to the occasion with couture gowns and head-turning glam.
