The rapper got awards for Best Collaboration Album‚ Samro’s Highest Airplay of the Year‚ SAMPRA Highest Airplay of the Year‚ Best Rap Album‚ Best Male Artist of the Year and Best Album of the Year for his Dakar II album and hit single‚ Ngud.

Kwesta explained that he has been in the industry for a while and that it is “finally” be recognition time for him.

He said that he is happy that people love his music as that is “his only job” as an artist.

“My only job is to make music and these are all just additional things.  I am happy to finally receive awards but music is still my number one. Maybe it is finally my time to be recognised but otherwise my main focus is giving my fans great music‚” he said.
