Nothembi Mkhwebane and Esther Mahlangu, two different kinds of Ndebele artists, were both honoured for their good deeds at an event that celebrated those who reach out to their nearest and show real Ubuntu.
Nothembi Mkhwebane cares about people just as much as she cares about her music. And that's a lot.
She was honoured, along with Esther Mahlangu, at an event held in the Shamase Gardens in Emaphupheni in Etwatwa, Ekurhuleni.
The Daily Sun reported Nothembi was given appreciation for her charitable work in Etwatwa and Daveyton.
Nothembi is famous for her wonderful music and has a whopping 8 albums behind her name. She helps families out with food and helps to send kids to school, which earned her the Isihlangu Sobukgwari Namasiko Award.
She's known as the African Queen of Ndebele Music and travelled around the world to promote her music.
It humbles me to see people recognising my contribution. It makes me want to help more people. I encourage other artist and individuals who are successful to come forward so we can help more people.
Esther is a different kind of artist - she's more visual. She was honoured for her tireless hard work at uplifting her community.
These two woman are inspirational and the walking definition of Ubuntu. Congratulations on your awards, ladies!
