South Africa is well known for good wine, delicious cuisine, great company and - of course - our beautiful men!

So when Afrikaans magazine, SARIE  recently relaunched their annual SA se Mooiste Man competition, the shortlisted 40 local male celebs had their work cut out for them. It is no easy task to be crowned SA's sexiest.

After asking the public who should walk away with the title for 2018, the answer was quite unanimous... 

Jo Black!

"This is not normal. My father always called me 'ugly beard-face', and now people think I'm sexy! Look at me proving him wrong," the singer told SARIE.com after the announcement.

Afrikaans singer Bobby van Jaarsveld won the competition last year with Nico Panagio and Brendan Peyper almost grabbing the top spot.

A few weeks ago the 'Skepe' hitmaker joined Breakfast with Martin Bester for his first radio interview after his major operation. He also did a rendition of Bruce Springsteen's 'I'm on Fire' on the show.
