Breaking News: Royalty Soapie Awards to be held on 8 March 2014
In a statement, the organisers of the inaugural Royalty Soapies Awards, the brainchild of Generations actress, Winnie Modise, stated that the awards will be held on 8 March 2014 at the Durban ICC.
They have also confirmed that the awards will be aired, live, on SABC 1.
Royalty Soapie Awards project director Sindile Xulu said: “As a team we are relieved to have a firm date and we will focus our energies on producing a top-class event that reflects the excellence of the work done by South Africa’s burgeoning television soap industry. It will be a night of glamour, entertainment and celebration."
Durban ICC Chief Executive Officer Julie-May Ellingson said that the ICC is ready to host the show. “The Durban ICC is synonymous with the best in class events and we will roll-out the red carpet and the best infrastructure our venue has to offer.”
Leo Manne of the SABC said: "We are in the process of finalising our negotiations for next years event and we are confident we will strike a win-win deal for all."
Finally there's some good news about the awards. We still wish that the etv productions hadn't pulled out so that the competition would be really fair and credible.
Now to wait for the acting and show categories, which will be released on 23 October 2013.
