1Life is changing lives at the DStv Mzansi Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards


While you’re casting your vote for your favourite radio and television personalities, don’t forget to nominate your 1Life Life Changer!

It’s lights, camera and red carpet on the 14th of March in Johannesburg where your favourite actors and presenters will be honoured in a regal affair. One of the highlights of the evening include the two special categories – the Lifetime Achievement Award and 1Life Life Changer Award.

1Life is giving back with this category as DStv viewers are encouraged to nominate everyday people from their communities for the great work they are doing and their continued sacrifice and selflessness. Winners will be selected based on how they’ve overcome adversity and turned their situation around with a positive impact in the community and also, their project must have a long-lasting effect and not be just another one-off thing. The winner will receive a R50 000 cash prize, plus a further R50 000 to use for a socially influential cause of their choice.


Last year’s winner, Mam’ Anna Dithane, a retired nurse who was nominated by her son, has paid it forward to her community by building a multi-purpose centre for children in her area. The 1Life Life Changer Award celebrates all those individuals who don’t shy away from the selfless nature of giving back just like Mam’ Anna.

To nominate your socially responsible person, you just need to register on this link and follow the prompts.
