Wakanda forever singer Sho Madjozi, real name Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif has been nominated for BET’s Best New International Act – the only South African artist nominated in this category.
The star is also nominated locally for the SAMA25 for Best Female Artist of the Year, Best Newcomer of the Year, Best Kwaito Album and Music Video of the Year. Clearly, the Limpopo’s Champion League Queen has been working overtime.
Also scoring a BET award in the Best International Act category is AKA, fresh off the heels of his Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award win earlier this year for Favorite SA Star.
Sjava and Black Coffee currently remain the only South Africans to win a BET Award, here’s to hoping we add more to this list. The BET Awards will take place on the 23rd of June 2019 in Los Angeles.
