Mzansi Kwaito and House Awards
The MKHMA are about recognizing, celebrating and connecting Kwaito and House artists and those who are constantly working hard behind closed doors to craft great music that we only receive as a final product, individuals who have capacity for achievement and success and who contribute in an inspirational way to the future of South Africa. The qualities that upraise the MKHMA to the top go beyond just the sound of music, but it’s the efforts and work that is polished and speaks to an ordinary South African, brilliant individuals with tremendous promise and great talent who excel for reasons that go far beyond their skill as musicians, producers, promoters etcetera.
