South African personalities have taken over this year's E! People's Choice Awards. Five awesome celebs have made the cut and are all truly deserving of the nomination.
The five lit Mzansi personalities are; rapper, actress and poet, Sho Madjozi, Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, Emmy Award-nominee Thuso Mbedu, magician Wian van den Berg and model Karl Kugelmann.
Voting has opened and we are certain that our celebs will come out victorious. This just proves that Mzansi is filled with worthy and deserving talent. E! Africa announced the nominees online.
ZAlebs attempted to contact the five SA nominees and was only able to get a hold of Kat Sinivasan. Kat told the publication that the nomination is a true honour.
"I originally only thought it was E! Africa and not E! Global. I can’t fathom it. I remember having like a 1 000 followers. I’m very blessed and very grateful to whoever chose me for this award.
Seeing some of our celebrities make the cut is a proud moment for SA as a whole. It has taken some time for the rest of the world to see the talent in Mzandi and now that they have, there is no stopping our stars from soaring.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Sho Madjozi and Busiswa are set to share the stage with the likes of Chris Brown, Rick Ross and French Montana in Portugal next year. Our very own girls have been booked to perform at an international afro-beats festival called Afro Nation 2021. Afro Nation recently announced the line-up to the prestigious concert on social media.
Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid are just some of the artists who will also perform when the event takes place from 1 to 3 July. This year's event had been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“In light of the recent Portuguese government directive regarding large gatherings, Afro Nation Portugal will be postponed to July 1st – 3rd 2021 and all tickets will remain valid," Afro Nation said in a statement on its website.
