Kwesta the King at #SAMA23

Kwesta did a clean sweep this past weekend at the 23rd edition South African Music Awards ceremony held at the Sun City Superbowl in the North West. The “Ngudu” hit maker made off with six awards on the night surprising the usual suspects who have overshadowed him for years.

Kwesta, who has long been overlooked by the awards organizers, has survived the brutal industry on nothing but raw, unadulterated talent producing hit after hit. He boasts what is probably the most recognizable, charmingly rough yet hypnotic voice, he is nothing like his peers – he is miles ahead.

He took home the following awards; Samro Highest Airplay of the Year, SAMPRA Highest Airplay of the Year, Best Rap Album, Best Male Artist of the Year and Best Album of the Year for his Dakar II album and hit single Ngud.

Kwesta was quoted by TimesLIVE saying, “When you’re in the industry for a long time and you finally get a well done from your peers it’s a great feeling. But I am still lightheaded, mostly humbled and very grateful for my fans who are amazing.”

“My only job is to make music and these are all just additional things.  I am happy to finally receive awards but music is still my number one. Maybe it is finally my time to be recognised but otherwise my main focus is giving my fans great music,” Kwesta was quoted saying.
