Carnival City is home to the 2018 Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards (MKHMA) this year.
Fans of the only South African awards show that focuses solely on kwaito and house music are in for a treat at the Big Top Arena on November 24.
Tembisa-born Sibusiso Leope, better known as DJ Sbu, is the host for the evening.
DJ Sbu is a South African kwaito musician, social entrepreneur, club DJ and a former co-owner of one of the biggest, black-owned record labels in South Africa.
Performers who will join DJ Sbu on the Big Top Arena stage include Bazoyenza hit-maker, Busiswa, DJ Maphorisa, Mshoza, Spikiri and first-time MKHMA nominees, The Triology.
The MKHMAs, as they are affectionately known, not only celebrate and honour musicians who have contributed to the growth of the kwaito and house genres in South Africa, but also serve to showcase and develop upcoming talent.
Four categories have been added for 2018 including the popular Gqom genre which is a fusion of the kwaito and house genres.
Apart from the nominated musicians, radio personalities could also bag themselves a coveted award at the third annual MKHMAs.
“We are honoured to provide the stage for the 2018 MKHMAs, and look forward to welcoming some of the biggest, as well as upcoming, kwaito and house artists to the Big Top Arena.
“This event promises to be a spectacular treat for fans of kwaito and house,” said Michelle Smith, the marketing manager for Carnival City.
