The news came as no surprise, really. King Monada's Malwedhe made it to the top 10 songs fighting for the title of Song of The Year. The hit track is competing against songs by big artists like AKA and Busiswa.
Since its release, Malwedhe has taken South Africa and the world by storm. It quickly became one of the hottest tracks of the season and could be well on its way to becoming song of the year.
TimesLIVE reported that the preliminary list for Song of The Year finalists was released and Malwedhe is on it.
Other songs include Yebo! by Busiswa, Fela in Versace by AKA, and As'phelelanga by Vusi Nova's.
While we feel confident that Malwedhe will take the crown, it's hard to predict because the public will decide and when that's the case, people tend to be surprised by the results.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Monada became so popular, he'll be travelling to the United Kingdom, Tanzania, Nigeria and Malawito perform in 2019.
Malwedhe became one of the must-play songs after the #MalwedheChallenge, or #IdabalaChallenge, led to people 'fainting' all over each other.
