Master KG, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small have been nominated for the chance to add some international awards bling to their collections. The three Mzansi favourites have been nominated for the MTV Europe Awards in the category of Best African Artist.
The winner of the same category from last year, Burna Boy, is nominated alongside the three South Africans. Since the category is from all of Africa, there are some other nations being represented too. The Mzansi artists are accompanied by Rema from Nigeria, Sheebah from Uganda and Gaz Mawete who hails from the DRC.
Nominees for other awards on the night include superstars from around the world. Lady Gaga bagged the most nominations, with seven in total, and Korean group BTS tied with Justin Bieber for their five nods.

Master KG, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small all took to their social media platforms to post the announcement of the nominations. The artists also asked their fans to head to the MTV official voting website as the winners are determined by popular vote.
Mzansi will have to wait until November to find out who clinches the win, but there's no question that it's a career honour just to be nominated.
In other Master KG news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on the artist revealing how the late Bojo Mujo influenced his music.
Master KG revealed that late Limpopo-born musician Bojo Mujo had a huge influence on his own music. The Jerusalema hitmaker, who also hails from Limpopo, replied to a tweep that he regards Bojo as his "legend".
A Twitter comedian did try and throw shade at Master KG with a quip about his voice being used on Bojo Mujo's songs. The musician laughed off the shade and instead praised the Summer Rain hitmaker for inspiring him to make hits.
Tweeps shared their thoughts and most commented on how they could see similarities between the two artists. As usual, Twitter provided the opinions.
