Our favourite soapie stars all came together for the 2021 Royalty Soapie Awards that took place this past Saturday. It was hosted at the beautiful Raddison Hotel and Convention Centre in Johannesburg. And Skeem Saam was amongst those lucky enough to take an award home.
Award 1: Outstanding Supporting Actress
The first award Skeem Saam was able to snatch up was for the Outstanding Supporting Actress. Elizabeth Serunye has made the show and fans proud by winning this category.
Serunye won the award for her role as Principal Thobakgale. She portrays this tough and complex character extremely well and focuses on the realness of facing challenges such as depression and drugs.
Award 2: Most Popular Show goes to Skeem Saam
Secondly, Skeem Saam has won in the category for Most Popular Show. With the show being in the run, and unfortunately losing, in the categories of Outstanding Editing Team, Outstanding Writing Team, and Outstanding Daily TV Drama, it was a great win to know that the fans support the show all the way. This is a great achievement for Skeem Saam as it went up against shows like Isono, 7de Laan, Binnelanders, and Muvhango.
Catch the red carpet and the Royalty Soapie Awards on SABC 1 on the 2nd of October at 20:00.
