King Monada makes it to the top 10 Summer Song Of The Year
The prelim list is out & Twitter is ecstatic because King Monada is there
The SABC was evidently listening to Mzansi when they named King Monada's viral track Malwede as song of the year.
The public broadcaster released the prelim list for its annual Summer Song Of The Year and King Monada.
Twitter is totes excited but the competition is mad tight!
Not only does Monada have to go against the originator of 'Yebo!' Busiswa who is featured in Prince Kaybee's Banomoya, he's also competing with Vusi Nova's smooth vocals in As'phelelanga and AKA's Fela in Versace among other amazing songs!
While there's no denying that Malwede is one of the strongest contenders on the list, these things are always tricky because wherever the matter is left to the public, the results are always unpredictable.
Y'all remember how KwaZulu-Natal maskandi artist, Mroza Fakude, walked away with a R150,000 cash prize and a brand new Kia Picanto after his hit song Van Damme was voted as SABC's Song Of The Year For 2016.
The competition was also really heated that year but when the clock struck 12, the whole country was left shook.
Anywho, the list that was released is only preliminary but so far it looks like most people were here for it! And if comments under the tweet are anything to go by... tweeps will be idibaling this December...
There are so many things that King Monada Malwedhe audio only achieved that no any other song has managed to achieve. That is even before video, before much radio play. The song just marketed itself because it is good.— byday (@cbuddyc) November 27, 2018
But to be honest all those songs are hits! The summer is a lituation already.
