In an interview with The Drum Magazine, Nomcebo Zikode expressed her joy in being able to inspire young aspiring musicians in the township with her Grammy win.

She believes that this award serves as proof that anything is possible with hard work.

I am happy to inspire young people from the townships and villages to know that it is possible to make it.

By winning this Grammy, we have already done our part to encourage young people to know to never give up….“

Wouter Kellerman, who has already won a Grammy in the past, expressed his excitement after receiving another Grammy award. He noted that this particular award holds a special significance for him as it is the result of a collaboration between South Africans.

“You do not get used to getting Grammy awards. This one is more special because it is an all-South African collaboration. It has been my mission to export South African music to the world. So this is a very beautiful moment for me personally. It is a huge and beautiful moment.”

Zakes Bantwini, the man of the moment, expressed gratitude towards the Ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture for their support of the arts and assistance to artists.

Additionally, he expressed excitement upon discovering that President Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned his name during the State of the Nation Address 2023 (SONA2023).

“Mina, intwana yakwa Mashu? Me, a boy from Kwa Mashu? To be mentioned by the President in his State of the Nation Address,” an ecstatic Zakes Bantwini said.
