RT @portiagumedesa: @TVwithThinus @nfvfsa Best response ever. I might fall for you this year. So bare and informative Thinus.
It's obviously a mistake. Dont worry, I'm sure no votes made before the official voting period, will be counted. People should just be careful not to waste their money by voting. The @nfvfsa annually have some problems/scandals with the Saftas. #saftas12 might have some too. 
The @nfvfsa told me they're announcing all the nominees for #Saftas12 on 2 February at Inanda Club in Johannesburg. 
A TV soap automatically becomes eligible if a TV channel did an entry into any @nfvfsa category. So basically it will be all of the soaps - unless they don't want to like Muvhango and Skeem Saam did the previous years who pulled out to boycott the #Saftas12. 
@StanTOTHEmaX @RealTalkOn3 @CheekyMedia_SA @News24 @Anele @SABC3 That is actually EXACTLY what is supposed to happen. In that way, you as the viewer, know that you are watching an advertisement.
