Anticipation is in the air with just a few more sleeps until the “Purple Carpet” is rolled out to welcome the who’s who of content creation to the second DStv Content Creator Awards, in association with Samsung Galaxy on Saturday 9 September in Sandton.

The night promises to be electric; not only will all the winners be announced, applauded and celebrated, but the awards itself is going to be an energetic and extraordinary two-hour show packed with live dance performances, music from South African legends Black Motion, laughter, poetry and the awarding of the first content creator OG.

Award-winning comedian and content creator, Donovan Goliath, has been confirmed as the host for the night. Donovan made it onto stage last year to receive his DStv Content Creator Award trophy; this year he will own the stage as the host and is again a nominee in two categories, namely the Sol Content Creator and Thumb-Stopping Awards.

The awards will welcome back Bontle Modiselle Dance Studio, who will be joined by the nominees in the first-ever Dance Award category: 250MachineAdriaan Hughes, Justin De NobregaKelly KiKx and Mr NT.

Just some of the presenters who have been confirmed include Kim Jayde (last year’s winner of the Fashion & Style Award); one of South Africa’s hottest emerging young artists and illustrators, Seth Pimentel aka African Ginger, rapper and TV presenter, Moozlie and talented actress, VJ and production manager, Farieda Metsileng (or you may know her as content creator Pharoahfi).

But there are plenty of surprise appearances and performances planned, so you don’t want to miss a minute.

If you can’t make it to The Galleria in Sandton on 9 September, be sure to watch the glitz and glam of the Purple Carpet live on the awards’ TikTok from 18:00-19:00.
