Third Royalty Soapie Awards to take place in March 2018

In South Africa soapies are the most highly watched television shows and there is many a household across the land where families may not be disturbed at a certain hour.

The third Royalty Soapie Awards will take place in March 2018 at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC). Over 20 productions will be vying for titles and awards to be the best in various categories and nominations are now open.

Royalty Soapie Awards Chief Executive Officer and actress Winnie Ntshaba says soapies are still popular because they are a form of escape.

She says the awards are meant to celebrate and acknowledge the actors for their craft, including the production side of things.

An sms line will be launched in January 2018 where viewers can vote for their favourites.
