This was the Oscars of South African football in every way. The player's wives, the presenters and big names from the entertainment world all dressed up and got together for a night of dining and toasting the best in the PSL.
Orlando Pirates player Thembinkosi Lorch was the big winner on the night, taking home the PSL Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.
We have a number of video interviews of the winning players, thanks to Front Runner who posted them on Twitter for the public.
Then there's PSL legends, players and clubs who wrote tributes to the winners. Some of the biggest names just wanted to show off their new dress on the night.

Walking across a packed Moses Mabhida, you can literally see the disbelief on my face. I took a leap of faith last year leaving a giant law firm, and God has been faithful. All I ever wanted was a career in sports and media, but I studied law. The 3 have come together.. Trust Him pic.twitter.com/QE0J7SYDqZ— Sbu Dube (@sibudube) May 20, 2019
