The second instalment of the Mzansi Kwaito & House Music Awards went down with a bang at Walter Sisulu Square in Soweto on Saturday night.
The awards were staged to celebrate the two unique genres as they reflect who we are, says Perfecta Khumalo, founder of the awards.

This year's theme was Spantsula, Mathand’ekhishini and All Star, attires that have for years resonated with the kwaito and house community, and dubbed street glamour.

Khumalo said: “We are here to prove that kwaito is not dead and kwaito is born again.

"We are here to motivate the legends, let them start releasing new kwaito albums, we are not talking about single albums but the whole 12-track albums," she said.

“Currently the house artists are doing well, hence we want the kwaito artists to do the same. We want to balance the equation,” Khumalo said.
