1. Feeling free in her Africa themed outfit
With all the hype that comes with this big event, Sho Madjozi chose to pull a modest and comfortable style, unlike most of the celebrities who pulled stylish dinner outfits. Against all odds, she still looked all glammed up in her casual and comfortable African-themed outfit. Her mood was also modestly hyped, most likely, she did not imagine that she would win the award.
2. Sophisticated beauty
This was yet another look that she pulled during the event. The look was the definition of her sophisticated and equally simple style. The colour pop spoke of her vibrant personality. She also looked chilled in this picture. Probably she was feeling the vibe and was living in the moment.
