Busiswa and Sho Madjozi have taken some major wins in 2019. The musos were recently named in the top 10 list of Africa’s Biggest Music Stars by CNN.
The other artists who made the list are Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, “African Giant” Burna Boy, Slap Dee, Angelique Kidjo, Diamond Platnumz, Yemi Alade and Mr Eazi.
Sho Madjozi’s BET award win this year contributed to her making the cut. “South African singer Sho Madjozi won the 2019 BET New International Act. In her acceptance speech, she said: ‘My story is a testament that you can come from any village, in any forgotten part of the world and still be a superstar’.”
Busiswa was also noted for her part in DJ Zinhle’s smash hit My Name Is. The star took to Social Media to capture her reaction to the news. “I won’t even front, I can’t believe I’m on this list. Yikes,” she tweeted.
