By now you know the Samas belonged to Mafikizolo last night. The Afro-pop duo took home 8 awards, for their comeback album ‘Reunited’ and hit songs.

The group also took an early lead at a pre-awards show held hours ahead of the main show when they won Best Selling Ring-Back Tone, Best Selling Full-Track Download and Best Selling Mobile Music Download of the Year for their single Khona.

Other artists who won were Sama favourites Zahara (Best Selling Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year), Rebecca Malope ( Best Traditional Faith Music) and newbie Nakhane Toure for his debut album ‘Brave Confusion’.

The night didn’t go down without any drama of course, youthful hottie Boity Thulo rocked up in the same dress as gospel legend Rebecca Malope. Boity (surely angry and embarrassed) did try to make light of the situation on Twitter, but too late. When audiences noticed this Twitter went crazy! Question: How does a designer give the same looking gown to two people going to the same event?
