The 2nd annual Mzansi Kwaito & House Music Awards will again be happening in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa this year. The #MKHMA team promised to keep this inaugural event in Soweto where ‘Kwaito Music’ was born.
Last year’s event was held at Walter Sisulu Square and the theme was simply ‘All Stars & Glamour’ and it was great to see supporters coming to celebrate all artists who have molded proudly South African music over the years.
The CEO and the Founder of #MKHMA Perfecta Khumalo says, ‘’this year’s awards are going to be bigger and better. We have started with the preparations and strongly believe in perfection. We are going to once more stick to our theme which is ‘’All Stars & Glamour’’. This is going to be exciting and our marketing and PR strategy has improved. We are here to prove that kwaito music is not dead and kwaito music is born again. We are here to motivate the legends, let them start releasing new kwaito albums, we not talking about single albums but the whole 12 tracks album. Currently the House artists are doing well hence we want the kwaito artists to do the same, we want to balance the equation’’. Perfecta said.
