- Makhadzi is trending on social media after a fan brought up how she was not nominated for the Ukhozi FM Top 10
- This caused fierce debate to result among social media users who weighed in with differing opinions
- Makhadzi recently trended for a more positive reason after her video for Murahu hit 1 million views
It’s that time of the year again where radio stations gather their best songs of the year. It’s also a time where Mzansi fights among themselves about which song deserves top honors. Ukhozi FM, South Africa’s biggest radio station, has released their Top 10 songs of the year and of course, drama has ensued.
Last year many felt that Master KG’s Jerusalema was snubbed because he was from Limpopo and DJ Zinhle’s Umlilo was favorured because she is native to Natal.
This year, it seems the same argument continues, this time, instead of Master KG, his former girlfriend Makhadzi has been thrust into the limelight instead. One social media user kicked off a fierce debate when he accused the radio station of snubbing Makhadzi because she is from Limpopo.
Twitter user @Hangwela posted:
“In South Africa when you're the best you become Enemy no1 of @ukhozi_fm especially when you from venda or Limpopo. MurahuSongOfTheYear”
His post triggered responses from both ends of his argument. Twitter user 1nzimande said:
“I turn to disagree my friend, @ukhozi_fm had promotions that were aired on the station, for everyone to email their song of the year, I doubt you knew about it, how often do you listen to uKhozi fm?”
“Ukhozi FM is a very corrupt Radio station it is not even about Limpopo bhuti they're just corrupt nje I don't know what the Igcokama song doing there I don't even know the song but it's on top 10”
“Makhadzi is only famous in Vhenda get that straight my guy we don't vibe with her music around here in KZN no hard feelings we just don't.”
“This is getting old. Must we do this every December? That time Ukhozi fm plays Makhadzi's music but you'll never hear a Maskandi song on Limpopo radio stations. I love Makhadzi but Murahu hasn't done enough to be song of the year. Anywhere.”
“But Majority of Ukhozi fm listeners are Zulus. People from Limpopo do not listen to it. So no one will vote for their artists”
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that Makhadzi has taken to social media to celebrate a huge accomplishment for her song Murahu.
The music video for the track has been viewed over one million times in just two weeks.
Taking to social media, Makhadzi thanked her supporters for the achievement.
"Thanks for 1 million views in 2 weeks."
Social media users congratulated her for the big win while others were curious about the progress of her squabbles with her former manager Rita Dee.
Twitter user sthebeworldwide said:
"That moloi who deleted it must be having chest pains."
"I asked you if you got paid for your royalties, you kept quiet but you are the one who bothered us with your squabble with your previous manager again, we want to know did you get paid hle?"
"The love we have for you it is unconditional. You are simply the best Queen Khadzi. I love you to the moon and back."
