The red carpet will be broadcast on SABC 3 at 7pm. And the awards will follow at 7.30pm. It's still a short time for a red carpet, but then we should be happy we are getting a pre-event red carpet.
Thank goodness it's Bonang hosting the red carpet. It's no secret that she is one of the best presenters in South Africa and she's great when she presents live. We've seen her many times as host of, among-st other things, the Metro FM Awards, the South African Music Awards and also hosting various red carpet events, including the SAMAs and the J&B Met.
Previous hosts of the SAFTA red carpet include Nonhle Thema, Jason Greer, Lerato Kganyago and make-up artist, Nthato Mashishi.
The SAFTAs still haven't announced who the hosts of the awards are and we are waiting on them with baited breath. For the second biggest awards ceremony in South Africa, they sure take their time.
Keep it locked on the blog and our social media sites (Twitter @SMtv_Guide and TVTag @SMtv) for updates.
