South African singer, record producer, and businessman, Zakes Bantwini, Wouter Kellerman, and Nomcebo Zikode have done South Africa proud at the 65th annual Grammy Awards.
The trio scooped Best Performance in the Global Music category.
The award is for their hit song ‘Bayethe’.
Their win follows last year’s Grammy won by DJ Black Coffee for the Best Dance/Electronic Album.
This is Kellerman’s fourth Grammy, while it’s a first for both Bantwini and Zikode.
Took me 17 years to find my path,
I have no words to express the emotions and grace that have come over me.
This moment is owed to my late Mother & Father.
Unkulu’ Nkulu uNumber 1!!!!
