Nomcebo Zikode Receives Honourary Award In Togo

Nomcebo Zikode Receives Honourary Award In Togo. The famous Jerusalema vocalist Nomebo Zikode continues to make waves both nationally and internationally. Jerusalema is now a global hit which helped gain recognition not only for South Africa but the creators of the song too. Nomcebo has recently gained another recognition in Togo by he AEA Foundation.

AEA’s mission is to fight against social and economic inequalities, to raise awareness among young girls and to help people in precarious situations. In representing South Africa and being one of the influential women in Africa, Nomcebo was recently honoured with an award in Togo by the AEA Foundation. The star took to social media to share the news with her fans and followers captioned: “Another chance to represent South Africa. Received an honorary award from the AEA Foundation in Togo @traceafrica #AfricaRise #TeamNomcebo.”

‘Jerusalema’ remix by Master KG featuring Nomcebo Zikode and Nigerian megastar Burna Boy was named International Song of the Year at the France’s prestigious NRJ Music Award. The smash hit beat some tough competition from Blinding Lights (The Weeknd), Physical (Dua Lipa), Kings & Queens (Ava Max), Tusa (Karol G and Nicki Minaj) and Before You Go (Lewis Capaldi).

Nomcebo shot fame and popularity from Jerusalema, however she continues to release new music. She also has dropped her own track ‘Xola Moya Wam’ featuring Master KG. The track is the first release of Nomcebo’s upcoming debut album which will consist of five tracks. Xola Moya Wam sees hitmaker Master KG exploring the amapiano genre. “The album was inspired by the fact that when the Covid-19 lockdown hit, I got scared. I thought God was punishing me because I have such a big song ‘Jerusalema’ and I should be outside singing and making money,” Zikode says

Nomcebo was also recognised as one of the 100 most influential young South African by Avance Media, a leading PR & Rating firm in partnership with 1000 African Voices & VIPI State and various Organisations.
