On top of all the wins for the year 2020, the one and only phenomenal DJ Zinhle has been announced as the Pan African Artist of the Year winner at the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMA).
Zinhle is extremely excited and grateful for the award as she also revealed that it is her very first music award ever.
DJ Zinhle took time to record a brief video talking about the award. She thanked NAMA organisers for recognising and honouring her and the Umlilo collaborators Rethabile and Mvzzle. She also disclosed that even though she’s been in the music industry for over a decade, she had never won a music award before.
“Hey, what’s up everyone? My name is DJ Zinhle from South Africa. I’ve actually never won an award before and this means a lot to me.” – she said.
“On behalf of South Africa, Rethabile, Mvzzle and myself, we would like to thank you for celebrating the song with us. We love the song and we’re so glad that you love it so much that it actually won an award,” – the Umlilo hit maker added.
NAMA is the country’s premier annual music awards ceremony, recognising musical excellence across all genres, from traditional to contemporary as well as paying tribute to the various facets of musical production in Namibia, as well as in Africa.
On Twitter, Zinhle repeated the simple but impactful message of gratitude. “Thank you for honouring us Namibia. @mvzzle_sa @rethabile_rsa are so happy. @namibianawards” she tweeted.
