Scooping Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series, Peris Wambui, who plays the no-nonsense Aunty on Ngahiha, beat Annete Emali – Kijakazi Chizi, Chantelle Waceke – Pray & Prey and Diana Nderitu – New Beginnings. Quite a competitive slot that was. Way to go Peris!

While the BIG win of the night went out to our very own Ngahiha Cia Wendo show which scooped Best Vernacular Series against popular series Haiyaya.
