The SAMAs had a number of very interesting red carpet moments this past weekend.

An individual that received the most reactions for her outfit was poet and businesswoman - Jessica Mbangeni.

Here outfit received a lot of mixed reactions from the public. While some people liked the look, others were not too sure about her outfit and compared her outfit to that of Beyonce's.

Jessica was not fazed by the negative comments and explained to Daily Sun that her outfit wasn't just for show but she wore it because she wanted to send a message to all Africans and more than anything it is to show that she is a liberated African.

“I want my people to know that I’m liberated and here to teach those who care to listen. I’ve already provided costumes to various international productions such as Black Panther,”

For those who are unaware, Jessica is also a fashion designer and owns Kwantu Afrocentric Designs which has created outfits for the likes of Vusi Nova and Lady X.

According to Daily Sun, such an outfit would cost between R40,000 - R70,000. Wow!

While some of us were laughing at Jessica's outfits, she's laughing all the way to the bank.

We're still impressed by the fact that she's getting that Black Panther money as well.

Talk about levels!
