Felicitations! African Influencer Awards 2023 Winners!


The African Influencer Awards 2023 were back for its third edition, as promised it was an unforgettable experience celebrating the brightest influencers across the continent. The 28th of October, At Impala Events and Conference Centre, as expected was a very successful event. Here’s a list of a few things that happened on the magical night of glamour:

Top-notch Performances:

We witnessed the electrifying performances from renowned African artists, showcasing their talents and kept us entertained throughout the night.

We had our first performance from Celine Sky who graced the evening with old school classic soul ballads. Then, our afro-pop king, Khwezi serenaded us with beautiful, warm and melodic amorous songs. Finally, Kyla Blac gave us the finale performance, vocally the virtuoso had a great tone and really good control of high notes, she had everyone dancing to her!


Mouthwatering Food:

Indulging in a delectable culinary experience with a wide array of African cuisine offered. From traditional delicacies to modern fusion dishes, there was something to satisfy every palate, obviously by the renowned Chef Don.

Refreshing Drinks:

We quenched our thirst with a variety of refreshing beverages, including signature cocktails, mocktails, and a selection of fine wines from Cocktail Sensei [See Instagram]

The red carpet was hosted and produced by the charismatic Being Brayden Season 2 cast. Black ties and ball gowns on, we were dressed to the teeth! I mean, who wanted to be side eyed by the fashion police? Yes, there was the fashion police, Shadel Noble, Atipa Busuman and Disrael Israel. 

Remember, fashion police, we were there to impressed and inspire, not to end up in their most wanted list. We had the fashion police point out hits and misses on the guests’ outfit, [See Magazine Next Issue]

Three people were crowned the evening’s most styled, drumroll… drumroll please, I will re-announce the crème de la crème of fashion at Saturday night’s event. The Best Dressed for the Evening Awards went to: Thobekile Zondo, Thabo Gunde and Jackie Dube, thats me xD!
