It's all roads lead to Sun City next weekend for the 25th installment of the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) as Mzansi honours and celebrates the crème de la crème of the music industry.
We caught up with one of Mzansi’s heavy weights Kelly Khumalo ahead of the prestigious event who is confident she’s going to win big this year. The 34-year-old muso is a big contender in the Best Female Artist of the Year and Best Afro Pop Album for her 8th album "Unleashed".
"It's funny that my producer and I predicted the Best Female nomination, in fact he predicted both. When we were in the studio we were like 'if we don’t get nominated for these two, then, what are we doing?' and we spoke it to life.
"And everybody that I worked with believes that "Unleashed" was worth being nominated and even winning a couple of awards.”
When quizzed about her view with regards to awards in general, Khumalo who walked away with the SAMAs Best Female Artist award in 2013 thinks it’s "cute" that 15-years into the industry her work is still being appreciated.
