Mkhize and son Andile Mpisane announced today their three international award nominations

from The Hollywood African Prestigious Awards. KwaMam’Mkhize has been nominated in the

The Hollywood and African Prestigious Awards (HAPAwards) celebrates outstanding individuals

whose lives have been marked by extraordinary achievement and milestones. The platform connects talented Africans with the Hollywood entertainment industry

and contributes to the development of several communities in Africa and across the United


The nomination comes less than a year since the captivating debut of KwaMam’Mkhize on

Mzansi Magic. The Twitter trending show left audiences motivated, inspired, overwhelmed and

in awe as they were taken through an entertaining journey of the family’s ups and downs.

Mkhize adds: “I’ve led a very private life. It was a long road to get me here. I decided to do this

show because the media had long spoken for us. We wanted people to see us as we are. That

was the initial plan but I enjoyed how people responded to me and my family. The love is

overwhelming, I still can’t believe it myself.”

The Reality TV show captured Andile Mpisane’s love for Gqom and viewers got the chance to

see a glimpse of the music video for his EP, Umcimbi by Andile ft Madanon and Distruction

Boyz. HAPAwards has nominated the music video which has over a million views on YouTube.

Andile Mpisane said on the nominations: “This came as a huge surprise to me as this year marks

my first year in the music industry, then I receive such nominations not just in my country but

internationally. Indeed this proves my intentions of taking Gqom to the world and being an

advocate for all young South African and African artists. This nomination is not solely for me but

for everyone who believes that music is a universal language.”

Winners will be announced on Sunday, October 18, 2020, starting 7.00 pm (CAT). Fans can
