Impressive storylines both on and off screen have grabbed the attention of the media and the general public, proving soap operas are still keeping South Africans entertained.
And what better way to celebrate this genre than the return of the Royalty Soapie Awards which this year, boasts two new categories – outstanding audio and, what is certainly going to be one of the most eagerly anticipated awards, Most Popular Soapie.

Although the likes of Isibaya, Saints and Sinners, Muvhango and Generations (even though things are bleak for them right now) are going to scoop most of the awards.
This year’s awards will see a total of 20 categories including Outstanding Actor, Outstanding Actress and the coveted Outstanding Soapie
