Not only did M-Net throw an amazing birthday event to celebrate turning the big 3-0 with special friends, but the channel also had a birthday documentary to show just what kind of magic was being celebrated in the epic birthday event. Needless to say the documentary pulled at many viewers' heartstrings.

2. Trevor Noah Hologram

There is nothing like having all your special friends at your biggest birthday celebration and with technology, they no longer have to just be there in spirit. M-Net is no stranger to innovation and the latest technology so it should have come as no surprise that Trevor Noah was at the birthday event in a hologram all the way from the United States of America!

3. Lira's Breathtaking Performance

She is an international musical force to be reckoned with! So who better to serenade at the M-Net birthday than the wonderful songstress herself, Lira. M-Net is a homegrown channel so it is only logical to have homegrown talent headlining its birthday. She made all the guests "Feel Good"!

5. The founder of the channel

M-Net has been in so many homes, touching so many lives. It would take a great innovator to dream up and create such a prolific channel. Naturally, one of the highlights of 2016 has to be founder of the magical channel, Koos Bekker.
