Mzansi's sexiest nominees' reactions

Here's how your celebs reacted to being nominated as the sexiest in Mzansi (before they knew who'd won):

The guys:

Generations actor Zolisa Xaluva's first reaction was "Why  me?" He added: "I still don't get it. I don't look at myself in that way."  When asked why he thinks he was nominated he  modestly said: "Maybe my love for the craft motivated  people to vote for me."

Who do you think is going to take it? "The girls, It's hard  to decide between Zizo, Mmabatho and obviously  Kagiso."

Shona Ferguson found out from Scandal's publicist that  he was part of this year's sexiest people run. "I was part of  the competition last year and didn't expect to be  nominated again this year. It is indeed an honour and I  am truly humbled." Shona thought Zizo Beda and  Lungile Radu would be crowned Mr & Ms Sexy.

Rhythm City's heartthrob Lungile Radu thinks people  are crazy and they have funny fetishes. "I don't think I'm  sexy. I don't look at myself in that way but I really do  appreciate the nomination and I'm truly humbled."

Like all the other nominees Y-FM DJ Moeti "Mo Flava"  Letsiki does not see himself as sexy. "I hope to be  competition enough for the other guys. I think I'm an  average guy. People will decide if I bring sexy back."

Sello Mbuzana Nyathi is a former SABC 1 continuity  presenter and now hosts the midday show on  Ikwekwezi FM. "The nomination took me by suprise.  Could it be my sense of humour? I honestly don't know  but I am humbled. This is really special."

Isidingo's Sisa Hewana is not sure what secured him a  spot in the Top 6. "If I knew what it was I would do more  of it. Thank you to the readers for nominating me."

The girls

Kagiso Rakosa who plays Sharon on Generations sees  the nomination as an achievement. "To be part of the  Top 6 is an honour. Even if I don't win but I will know that  someone out there knows and appreciates what I do."

Another nominee Zizo Beda doesn't know what people  voted for her. "I think it's because I never try to be  anyone else but myself. Maybe that's what people find  sexy."

Tshego Malepe believes "you don't have to be over the  top to stand out." I like to keep things simple and that's  what I think the readers like. I'm humbled that they took  the time to nominate and vote for me."

Minnie Dlamini feels priviledged to be part of  this competition. "Being recognised is cool. Thank you  so much for the support."

Businesswoman and model Primrose Crous thinks the  readers nominated her because they like her  personality. "This means celebrating myself more as a  woman. Thank you so much to all the people who voted  for me."

Mmabatho Montsho did not really have the time to chat  because she was busy sorting out stuff for her trip to  LA.
