Sho Madjozi beat the likes of France’s Jokair and Nesly, the UK’s Headie One and Octavian as well as Teniola Apata from Nigeria. The award was a viewer’s choice, meaning it was voted for by fans.


Speaking on her win, Madjozi says her it is a testament that you can be from any village, in any forgotten part of the world and still be a superstar.

“For the girls that come from where I’m from, which is Limpopo, I just want to say that you don’t need to change who you are, you can still be big,” she said while accepting her award.

Many South Africans woke up to the good news and congratulated Madjozi on her win:
