Congratulations are in order for Makhadzi, who has had much to celebrate recently after winning a Favourite African star award at this year's Nickelodeon Kids' Choice awards.

The Limpopo-born star took to her social media timeline to recall her journey of coming from a small village called Ha-Mashamba Tshivhangani when she used to dance at taxi ranks.

“One minute you see me dancing and sweating, selling my CD at train stations, taxi ranks or in front of shops in different corners of Tembisa and around Limpopo, the next I am here as African star.

“Thank you very much to everyone who voted for me. We won the Favorite African Star. Thank you very much for accepting me for who I am. I love you,” she wrote.

The singer also celebrated being nominated for this year's DStv Viewers Choice Awards under the favourite personality, favourite song and favourite music artist categories.

“I honestly don't know what to say any more. God is amazing. After all the rejections and doors closed for me because I was mostly misunderstood,. but because of your love and consistent support I continued to work day and night and then I was well-prepared for God's timing. Thank you and please vote for me.”
