Limpopo-born artist Makhadzi won a BET award in the Viewer’s choice: best new international act category.

As she turned 28 on the day of the ceremony, she added: “All I can say is, ‘It’s possible, black child, you can make it.’ This is the best birthday ever!”

“I’m so happy. I started making and selling my music in the streets, and today, I’m here; my dream came true,” the Limpopo- born artist, whose real name is Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona, said in her acceptance speech.

New South African Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture Gayton McKenzie praised their accomplishments on X.

“Things are happening already, congratulations to both ladies. We want to assure South Africans that we will not be a Ministry that will be content with congratulating artists and creatives only but will go out and unearth more Tyla’s & Makhadzi’s. Help us find more future superstars.”
