One of South Africa's most loved kwaito legends will be honoured at the seventh annual Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards set to take place on 26 November. 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 rapper and kwaito star has had a rocky year. In March, Zola 7 made headlines after a video of him looking frail went viral and fans flocked together to donate money to the diabetic star.

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, Mzansi Kwaito House Awards CEO 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.
