Looks like the absence last year was worth the wait! Metro FM out did themselves to bring us 'the best Metro's yet'.
Indeed it was their best yet (personal point of view of course!), except the fact that wasn't a live TV broadcast was a huge flop!. Our Team in Jozi had to rely on my feed from here in Nelspruit in order to tweet them to rest of SA. SPHEctacular was also broadcasting his show 'The Pre Party' at the awards, but his announcements were a few minutes delayed.
Moving away from the bad, this fabulous event saw the Mbombela Stadium looking Box Freshe as ever. (see pics)
