Sho Madjozi is hot property right now and we are here for it.

The rapper first caught our attention after collaborating with Okmalumkoolkat, and won our hearts with the release of her smash hit, Dumi Hi Phone.

This year, mind you, it's not even over. She's been securing bags and making headlines for all the right reasons.

Here are five of Sho Madjozi's big wins thus far:


The Huku hitmaker kickstarted this year with a nod from Vogue. It selected her for its Vogue World 100,  a list of people in music, television and fashion who are radically reimagining the landscapes of fashion and culture globally.


Not long after that, she bagged four nominations – Female Artist of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, Best Kwaito/Gqom/Amapiano Album for Limpopo Champions League and Music Video of the Year for Huku – at the Sama25. She won two. 

Fashion collabo

Her bold, colourful and eclectic style saw her break boundaries and inspire creativity with her unique Sho Madjozi Collection with Edgars.

BET award

And not to forget that the good sis recently put SA on the map again when she bagged the BET Best New International Act at the 2019 BET Awards in Los Angeles last week.

Forbes under 30

Madjozi was also among the top 30 in the Creatives category of Forbes Africa's 30 Under 30 list and bagged a grand endorsement deal with Brand South Africa as the Play Your Part SA ambassador.

Sis keeps winning!
