It has been an incredible year for South African duo, Mafikizolo. Not only did they win big at this year’s SAMAs, they’re also multiple nominees for this year’s MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs), they’re being booked for gigs all over the continent and now they’ve cracked a nomination for this year’s BET Awards!! Big up to them. They were nominated alongside Davido (Nigeria), Sarkodie (Ghana), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) and Toofan (Togo) in the Best International Act category. I’m pretty sure they’ll be heading over to LA on the 29th of June to be rub shoulders with the music industry’s finest! Big up Africa!
