Social media was a mess on Saturday night as users weighed in on Minnie Dlamini’s hosting of the third DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards. Minnie entertained a packed crowd and celebs at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, with several stunning outfit changes and witty comments.
But Twitter was in debate mode, comparing this year’s ceremony to the last, and Minnie to previous host Bonang Matheba. Tweeps weighed in on everything from Minnie’s jokes about “Xhosa’s winning” to her outfit choices and the venue’s sound issues.
Soon Minnie topped the trends list as fans went to war defending their fave. In an interview on Friday, Minnie told TshisaLIVE she had been preparing for the big night with “lots and lots of rehearsals. The team has put a lot of work into ensuring that we give a viewers at home a quality world class show. I’ve been working on my lines and my synergy with every element of the production.”
I hope South Africans will allow Minnie to flourish tonight. Im already some of yall comparing her to Bonang and “wishing Bonang was the host”. She’s NOT, Minnie is – Get over it!!!! #DSTVMVCA

If you want Bonang, do your own awards and invite Bonang to host them. Some of us are ok with Minnie.

I so love Minnie Dlamini but this thing that looks like tights aowa. The designer should have made it look like the color of her skin tone. A bit lighter would have been great. #DSTVMVCA pic.twitter.com/SXfW1CIUtc
