Thanks SAMA20!

We had such a great time at the South African Music Awards on Monday. Well done to all the winners. It was an honour to be nominated and lovely to see so many old friends and make some new ones. And when Ladysmith Black Mambazo sang I felt like I turned into one enormous weepy goosebump.

Also a huge thank you to Sies!Isabelle for my beautiful dress.

And the nominees are…

What an awesome surprise to find myself nominated for two South African Music Awards today! Yowza and Yippee!

Dear Reader, with ‘Rivonia’, has been nominated for ‘Best Female Artist’ and ‘Best Alternative Album’.
