Msawawa wants to be honoured for his contribution in the Mzansi music industry. The former child star wants to be given his flowers while he is still alive.
Like may South African artists, the Bowungakanani hitmaker also believes that he deserves the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution. He has revealed that he has been in the music industry for almost 20 years.
The former Kwaito star, who has hung up his Kwaito microphone and switched to gospel music, said he only has two awards under his name. He has only won the Best Newcomer and Song of the Year accolades at the Metro FM awards.
Msawawa said he'll not be discouraged if he doesn't get the recognition he wants. He told Daily Sun that he did exceptionally well during his heydays.
"I’ve been in the music industry for almost 20 years but I only have two Metro Awards – Best Newcomer and Song of the Year. I did exceptionally well in the music industry but if nobody recognises this, I’ll not be discouraged. I believe everything will happen at the right time."
Briefly.co.za learnt that the star will release a new song tomorrow titled Lemfundo. Six days ago, he shared on Instagram that he was shooting a music video for the song. The song features DJ Bongz.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Dr Tumi has won the hearts of Idols SA viewers over. The multi-award-winning gospel star appeared as a guest judge on the show on Sunday and Mzansi fell in love with his "charm".
The I Keep Winning hitmaker continued his winning streak on the music competition as some of his fans heaped praise on him. Some even suggested that he should just stay on the show for good.
The talented musician was also applauded for not laughing at the contestants who came to the show to try their luck at music. Tweep @princessLopie said:
"Dr Tumi is very professional... He doesn't laugh at anything Yaz... Maybe he should stay for good."
