ANC CONGRATULATES SOUTH AFRICAN TRIO FOR WINNING A GRAMMY AWARD
The African National Congress joins millions of music lovers across the world in congratulating three South African musicians for winning the prestigious Grammy award at a ceremony which was held on Sunday, 05 February 2023, in Los Angeles. “The Grammy Awards are regarded as the most prestigious and significant music awards worldwide”.
The trio, Zakes Bantwini, Wouter Kellerman and Nomcebo Zikode, won the award for the Best Global Music Performance in the Global Music category for their hit song BAYETHE.
We pay tribute to the great sons and daughter of our nation who flew the South African flag high on a global stage and represented Africa with distinction. Thank you for taking our culture and heritage to the world and for inspiring us that “our dreams are valid”.
Working together with the creative sector, we should roll out programs that support the creative industry especially following the impact of Covid-19 on the sector. We must continue to create an enabling environment for South African artists to compete in international awards and events. The ANC will work closely with them to create this enabling environment.
