    Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards: Zola 7 set to receive honour

    The seventh annual Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards are set to take place on 26 November and a very special musician will be honoured with an award. According to Daily Sun, Bonginkosi Dlamini, popularly known as Zola 7, will receive a special award at the ceremony for his contribution to the industry. 

    The legendary rapper has had a rocky year. In March, Zola 7 made headlines after a video of him looking frail went viral. Mzansi came together to donate money to him.

    SEVENTH ANNUAL MZANSI KWAITO AND HOUSE MUSIC AWARDS 

    The Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards recognise artists who have contributed greatly to the kwaito and house genres in South Africa. In 2021, the likes of Mampintsha, DJ Cleo, and Trompies were among those who were nominated. 

    The nominees for the Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards were announced at a ceremony on 16 June at the Soweto Theatre in Gauteng. The ceremony was hosted by poet Ntsiki Mazwai and radio presenter Azola Mlota. 

    Speaking to Daily Sun, the CEO of Mzansi Kwaito House Awards, Perfecta Malinga, said this year the awards received a record-breaking number of entries. 

    “This event came at the right time when everybody, especially in the music industry needed something to lift their spirits after the lockdown and the losses we suffered as the creative arts industry,” said Malinga.
