“Oi, Oi Mzansi. uSbuda lo”… And that is how radio and TV personality, ‘Sibusiso Leope’ will welcome the public in attendance, as the host of the 3rd annual ‘Mzansi Kwaito And House Music Awards’ on the 24th of November 2018.
‘DJ Sbu’, as he is affectionately known, is a South African Kwaito musician, social entrepreneur, club DJ and a former co-owner of one of the biggest, black owned record labels in South Africa. Despite his numerous accomplishments, 39 year old, Tembisa born host of the DJ Sbu Breakfast Show will be adding another accomplishment to his long list of achievements.
“We previously had Chommee and Skhokho who are both musicians from ekasi to host the awards. Having DJ Sbu host the awards will motivate and inspire upcoming musicians, who come from different townships, to work harder on their dreams and they too might get to host these amazing awards.” – Mondli Mlauza, MKHMA PR & Communications Officer.
Fans of the only South African awards show that sorely focuses on Kwaito and House, are in for a treat on the 24th of November 2018. Performers who will join DJ Sbu at the Big Top Arena stage in Carnival include Bazoyenza hit maker, Busiswa, DJ Maphorisa, Mshoza, Spikiri and 1st time MKHMA nominees, The Triology.
“The Lord is good, he said in His word, ‘I will never leave nor forsake you’. I was hurt and devastated when Zola dropped us, but now I am excited and blessed that God gave us someone who is more loved by the Country and who fits the show very well. I can’t wait for the 24th November 2018.” – Perfecta Khumalo, MKHMA Founder & CEO.
