- Zaza Mokhethi reveals the pain of being unappreciated by award organisers in South Africa

Gospel singer Zaza Mokhethi shares the pain of being unappreciated by award organisers in South Africa. She mentioned that she has only one award, but the big organisations have not given her any flowers.
Zaza gets candid about being unappreciated
The Namhla Nkosi hitmaker was a guest on The Venting Podcast, where she lifted the lid on local award organisations not recognising her. Mokhethi's fruitful career spans over 13 years and has performed with big Gospel giants such as Spirit of Praise and many more.
Mokhethi revealed that she has one local award from Mpumalanga.
She did share that she only gets nominations but no awards.
“I don't own an award from the biggest awards in South Africa. I think I have one from Mpumalanga. I do get nominations at the big awards.”
Mokhethis shares she only has international awards
She continued her heartbreaking interview by adding that she has international awards in Tanzania, London and the United States. Zaza questions the award system in Mzansi, saying it does not make any sense to her.
She admitted that it makes her feel unappreciated. So much to the point where she does not want to submit for the awards.
“It's very painful to feel unappreciated at home. It hurts. I don't know how the people who get them, get them. But they get them. I made peace with it and decided not to enter again because it hurt. It makes you feel like you are not enough. I decided to make music for the people and not be nominated for awards.”
"A big congratulations to my sister OMG @ntokozombambo sis. I’m so happy and proud of you. You deserve it you’re working hard."
