Ntando Duma, Minnie Dlamini and Bonang Matheba among the #YOUSpectacular2017 nominees

The annual YOU Spectacular Awards are upon us so it's time to get those phones, tablets and computers ready to vote for your favourites. 

Over the past 13 years, Drum and Huisgenoot's sister publication, YOU Magazine, has taken the time to honor the best in South African entertainment and this year, they have returned (albeit later than usual as the awards usually take place in June/July) to hand out accolades to South Africa's favourite ZAlebs.
