Soapie lovers from across the country voted Villa Rosa the most popular soapie. Therese Benade and Andre Lotte won the Outstanding Villan awards bringing Villa Rosa's award tally to three.
The audience was entertained by DJ Merlon featuring Mondli Ngcobo who performed their smash hit Koze Kuse.
Performances were also made by house and R&B singer Bucie as well as the 18-member Durban Gospel Choir.
The ceremony was hosted by comedian
Comedy duo of Goliath & Goliath, Donovan and Jason, were MCs during the awards ceremony.
Host Donovan Goliath welcomed the losers to tweet #shouldabeenme.
In a previous interview with Sowetan, Winnie Ntshaba said she came up with the idea because the industry needed to celebrate all its players, and to create competition among actors, scriptwriters and producers.
"I call them the Royalty Soapie Awards because actors are treated like kings and queens by ordinary people."
