Gqom music duo from Durban, Distruction Boyz and singer-songwriter from Durban, Shekhinah Thandi Donnell have been nominated at the MTV EMAs (MTV European Music Awards).
MTV Europe Music Award is an award presented by Viacom International Media Networks to honour artists and music in pop culture. It was originally conceived as an alternative to the MTV Video Music Awards, which are hosted annually in the United States.
Distruction Boyz and Shekhinah are nominated in the Best African Act alongside last year’s winner Davido, Fally Ipupa and Tiwa Savage.
“That is such great news! We are super happy and this just shows that gqom is the future,” the group’s Goldmax told TshisaLIVE who broke the news to them.
