South Africa’s most popular deejays Oskido Mdlongwa and DJ Maphorisa scored the most nominations at the fifth Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards (MKHMA) that were announced over the weekend virtually.

Mdlongwa and Maphorisa each walked away with three nominations. Mdlongwa is nominated in the best video category, best producer category and best collaboration category. While Maphorisa got the nod in the best producer category, and two nominations in the best amapiano songs category. In the best producer category, the two greats will compete directly with each other, and also with Black Coffee, DJ Sbu as well as Mahoota.

The two deejays are followed closely by  kwaito legend Jakarumba and DJ Zinhle who also got two nominations. Jakarumba is nominated in the best kwaito single and best kwaito album and DJ Zinhle got nominated in the best deejay and best house single category. The awards ceremony will take place on August 1 at Sun City in the North West province.

 CEO of the awards Perfecta Malinga  said: “When the president of the country announced the lockdown, I was worried that the awards will be affected. Thanks to the attest technology we were able to announce live online.”

 “This year we received a record breaking number of submissions, affirming the artists' commitment to the awards. Understanding that some of our upcoming artists could not

afford data to see the online nomination part, we requested donations and good Samaritans responded. The data was given to upcoming artists to help them watch the online nomination party.”
