Limpopo musician Makhadzi continues to represent her people very well and continues to break records.

One of Africa's biggest music channels, Channel O, had an exclusive playlist dedicated to the musician.

The 30 minute show called Only Makhadzi was dedicated to playing only her music.

This is said to be a first for a Venda artist.

Fans kept singing her praises and hoping for a longer playlist next time.

However, many were also livid at the fact that she is the first artist from Venda to have her own slot.

Peeps said artists from Limpopo deserve the same recognition as any other artists from other parts of the country.

@Tshilidzi said, "Our tribe and a few other tribes in this country need TV time. However, let us not use that 'Channel O doing strictly Makhadzi' (line) to make the world think we were so stranded for recognition in the country. I personally don't know what it took for this to happen, but it's a new era now."

Makhadzi has been through a lot to reach this stage of triumph in her career.

Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that the star had complained of her manager not adequately compensating her for all her hard work.

Makhadzi overcame all that to steal the show at the DStv Mzansi Viewers Choice Awards, which were held in March.
