The SAMAs were hosted by Somizi Mhlongo, Dineo Ranaka and Mpho Popps last year. But this year, the organisers have chosen to turn back the clock to celebrate 25 years of the awards, choosing two hosts from each decade of the awards.

According to TshisaLive, the formidable 1990s TV couple, Bob Mabena and Melanie Bala, will host part of the ceremony, with music and reflection on memories from that era where they co-hosted the popular music show called Studio Mix.

Then hip-hop star, Khuli Chana, will join Lesedi FM host, Twasa Seoke, to relive moments that made the millennium years such a vibrant period in local music.

Be sure to catch all the drama and excitement of the main award show on Saturday evening.

Mzansi social media users were taken aback by the announcement of six hosts though and decided to post memes to share their feelings. Take a look below to see some of their comments:

Meanwhile, a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that the 25th South African Music Awards will be honouring some of Mzansi's favourite musicians. HHP, TKZee and Mango Groove will all be celebrated for their different contributions to music over the years.

The 25th South African Music Awards will take place in the North West and will not only celebrate the hottest musicians of the year, but also honour those who came before them and paved the way for new artists.

The SAMAs will recognise HHP, TKZee and Mango Groove for their years of work put into the music industry.

According to TimesLIVE, HHP's firsts will be celebrated - everything from him being the first rapper to use a Kwaito beat to being the first artist to successfully have multiple sync deals.
