The 18th Annual MTN South African Music Awards

Loliwe
 

Aka The One Where Zahara Scoops All the Statues.

Even though I wasn’t able to be in South Africa to see this year’s SA Music Awards (SAMAs) take place under the new hand of Randall Abrahams, I was still keeping an eye on this year’s winners. Being a fan, first and foremost of local music, and a former judge of the awards, I am always keen to see who has made a mark in the public’s eye, and this year, it was undoubtedly Zahara’s year to shine. In South Africa’s version of the Grammys, she is Adele. Only she’s done even better than Adele. The 24-year-old Xhosa singer from East London garnered a record-breaking 8 SAMAs.

Here’s the title track from her award-winning album, Loliwe, which went double platinum in SA, less than 20 days after its release last year:

  45. I mastered more something totally new on this fat reduction issue. One particular issue is that good nutrition is especially vital any time dieting. A tremendous reduction in junk food, sugary meals, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and white flour products might be necessary. Retaining wastes parasites, and toxins may prevent ambitions for shedding fat. While specific drugs briefly solve the problem, the bad side effects aren’t worth it, and in addition they never provide more than a short-lived solution. This can be a known indisputable fact that 95 of diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog.
