Mzansi’s Sho Madjozi is really flying the SA flag high as she recently bagged another international award.
The John Cena hitmaker has been doing the most this year, from winning a BET Best New International Act to now bringing home the title of Best Female for Southern Africa at the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) over the weekend in Dallas, Texas.
The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a snap of her performing on stage at the awards ceremony.
“Last night I won Best Female for Southern Africa at the AFRIMMA in Dallas, Texas. According to you, what song do you think got me this award? (Well done to my homie, MasterKG, who won for best male.)”
Fans immediately took up Sho’s challenge and flooded her mentions with congratulatory messages and the obvious answer to her question, which was her John Cena song that dominated internet sites worldwide.
Sho's Instagram post gathered 21.6k views and more than 250 comments. Here are some of the comments that stood out:

thesopranist_: "Congrats Maya, you see John Cena, it did the things but Huku did work some magic too. You are finding the pots."
Sho’s song has been making waves in the music world since its international debut on Colors in August.
People loved it so much, that a hashtag, #JohnCenaChallenge, went viral on social media, prompting dancers from around the world to start busting their moves to this epic hit.
Sho took to Instagram recently to share that John Cena hit 5-million views on Colors and how happy she was that people worldwide were loving her jam.
“Here’s a video of David Barrios and his crew all the way from Colombia. This video made me so happy. The score is 16-14. #JohnCenaChallenge.”
Meanwhile, two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Sho Madjozi featured in the American publication, Billboard, and she opened up about representing South Africa abroad.
According to TimesLIVE, Sho said that seeing a South African make it big overseas makes a difference to the self-esteem of others who look up to them.
"It makes a big difference if you see Trevor Noah becoming a success internationally or Black Coffee.
"It does a lot to people’s self-esteem, like, ‘Whoa, finally these people see us as equals.’ It makes a lot of Africans proud and happy when they see you getting that recognition."
