Takie Ndou spoke to Daily Sun about leading the nominations and said he’s excited and humbled by the nominations.

“I’m so excited about the nominations. I am so humbled. It was a difficult year and one thing that has helped me get where I am is that I listened to the Holy Spirit when God told me to record a DVD recording, even if it was during the lockdown and we only had 50 people in the audience,” said Takie.

“The title of the album is The Great Revival and I think God was telling me that the great revival was coming. Seven categories, honestly, I am so revived, humbled, and inspired. I want to thank the awards for all these nominations, my fans for supporting me and the media for pushing my music and talking about me,” he said.

Other nominees include Ps Sebe Nzuza, Thobekile, Xolly Mncwango and Kgaogelo Kekana for Best Female Artist. The Best Gospel Male Artist nominees are Ayanda Ntanzi, Takie Ndou, Teboho Moloi and Canaan Nyathi.
