The lady in the yellow dress spotted at the Metro Awards (MMA16) on Saturday managed to steal the spotlight from the music scene, the awards ceremony and all the metro FM drama, with her revealing yellow dress.
She captioned her video which showcases the outfit under “Umzimba ungausabisi” loosely translating into, “Don’t be afraid to show off your body”.
She is a self-proclaimed house DJ and has been trying to break into the music industry for a while now and with the attention that her dress brought to the Metro awards it seems that she may have just found a way in.
Everyone has been wondering what the motive behind the dress was. Turns out the dress was not only for the attention, it was also to create a hype around the release of her new track entitled “Umzimba”.
