“Ingoma Ehlukanisa Unyaka (the song that will ring in the new year) is an annual campaign that sees South Africans from all walks of life drop everything they’re doing and tune into Ukhozi FM to find out what the song of the year is. This time around, they spent the first day of 2022 trying to find out who the artist behind the song of the year is,” the Citizen reported.
However, some Mzansi peeps are not entirely convinced of the accuracy of the results and with some saying they didn’t even know the song or who the 24-year-old DJ from Seaview, Durban is.
Here are some of their reactions:
"We are not even halfway through the month of January 2022 and we already have DJ Hlo, Bheki Cele, Parliament and Somizi on the list of January calendar."
"Isn't this good news worth celebrating? Jj Hlo is the first woman to win Song of the Year on Ukhozi FM."
"DJ Hlo song is a very nice song and unique. Can somebody send it to me so that I can listen to it for the first time."
