TOP maskandi artist Majalibhunu will compete with SA musicians for the Best Maskandi Artist gong at the forthcoming SADMA Awards.

Another Eswatini musician nominated in the awards is rising Afro soul female artist Meme.

Each year the South African Development Music and Achievement (SADMA) Awards honour musicians for their toil under different genres and categories.

New categories this year are Best Radio and Best MC. "Clearly, my music is making an impact in South Africa, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal Province.

"It shows that hard work pays off. The plus is that we've been nominated by SA fans who've been following our music over the years," Majalibhunu stated.

He noted that this was a huge motivation for him and a chance to make history by outsmarting his more experienced and professional musicians by winning the much coveted gong.

"I'll push hard so that when voting starts on March 1, we're ready with my team to mobilise fans to vote for me. "This is the perfect stage for us to hoist Eswatini's flag in the neighboring country so they respect us".

Majalibhunu said his aim was to uplift maskandi music so that it is noticeable just like gospel music in the kingdom.

"It calls for hard work and perseverance, and I believe I'm ready to deliver," he closed. In the kingdom, Majalibhunu has won the Best Maskandi Artist award twice; in 2018 and 2019 in the MTN SWAMA Awards.
