Musa Keys recently hosted a Grammy Nomination Celebration to honour his achievements as a South African musician at the Grammy Awards. The event took place at Zioux in Sandton and paid tribute to Musa in his artistry.
At 23 years old, Musa made history as the youngest South African man to be nominated for the prestigious award. His award nomination, seen as a win for amapiano, is taking the genre native to South Africa and highlighting in on the global stage. He is nominated in the Best African Music Performance category alongside Davido for their hit single “Unavailable”.
Hosted by Anele Mdoda and Zakes Bantwini, the event was a star-studded affair. “I am thrilled and honoured to be part of the African Nominees Celebration Campaign 2024 ahead of Grammy Week. The representation of South African artists and the growing presence of African talent at the Grammys is a testament to the vibrancy and richness of our music. It is incredible to see how African music has played an integral role in shaping the global music landscape. I congratulate all the Grammy nominees and wish them the best of luck on this remarkable journey,” said Zakes Bantwini.
