Award-winning house DJs DJ Bongz and DJ Sox have left the people of Mzansi puzzled after having pulled out of the recently-launched KZN Entertainment Awards. The people want an explanation.
Both Bongz and Soz were nominated under the Best Club DJ category and have now both pulled out of the running.
Taking to social media, Bongz gave a statement where he thanked the awards and his fans for the nomination but explained that he would not be a part of the awards this year.
Bongz did not give a reason as to why he was pulling out though, simply that it was decided upon with great deliberation.
“Thank you to everyone who voted for DJ Bongz because you listen to my music and genuinely thought it is worthy of award recognition. Please be assured that I did not reach this decision lightly and that I don’t want to nullify or minimise your opinion.”
Sox also took to social media with a statement revoking his participation in the awards. Unlike Bongz, Sox explained that his reasoning was due to:
“Poor execution and non-transparent process of this year's awards, including the fact that we were alerted on social media of the nominations with no consent or contact from the association or organisers.”
Fans are totally shocked that Bongz and Sox have pulled out of the awards and feel they deserve a better explanation.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Durban music artists shut down the N3 freeway to protest Covid-19 regulations. The entertainment industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus lockdown and artists have called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to lift the restrictions on the entertainment scene.
Now, Duduzane Zuma voiced his support for the #VulaPresident movement in a video shared online.
Duduzane applauded musicians - who include the likes of DJ Tira, DJ Merlon, Mshunqisi Dladla, Zodwa Wabantu, DJ Happy gal, DJ Sox and Tzozo - for taking a stand against the regulations imposed with the lockdown.
