Channel24 host these awards online every year to give some love to South Africa's favourite local stars on social media. "Social media is such an integral part of our lives. We know that it has the power to start a movement and change the world. It's also a great source of fun and entertainment," says Herman Eloff, Channel24 editor. "The Channel24 Online Awards are focused on the more light-hearted side of social media and is a fun way for fans to support the local stars that keep us entertained online."
Other big winners include Cassper Nyovest who won not one but two awards this year for Best YouTube Video and Best Couple - an award he shares with Boity.
This is the second year of the Awards and has shown double the voter numbers and more celebrity involvement. Roxy Burger, who won the award for Best Selfie puts it best; "The Channel24 Online Award for Best Selfie is like the Oscar of selfie awards."
