Student muso nominated for national City Awards

MAKING A MARK: Operations Management student, Luzuko “Aefro” Fikile, has been nominated as the Best Newcomer for this year’s City Awards for his contribution to the music industry. MAKING A MARK: Operations Management student, Luzuko “Aefro” Fikile, has been nominated as the Best Newcomer for this year’s City Awards for his contribution to the music industry.

An Operations Management student, who released a contemporary rap single called Winning in 2020, has been nominated as the Best Newcomer for this year’s City Awards.

Luzuko Fikile, who is affectionately known as Aefro by his fans, says it is an honor for him to be nominated for the Awards. “To me this means recognition for putting out a craft that is representing the culture of the Cape Town’s City Bowl,” adds Luzuko.

He intimates that for him he has already won and that so have the artists who are nominated alongside him. “For the mere fact that you got people appreciating your body of work and jamming to your music, that is a win,” he says. “Being nominated for an award means you’re one of the people that are contributing to [the] best works of art, and urges one to step up one’s game and continue putting out their best work. I wish everyone the best of luck."

To vote for Luzuko SMS "021 Aefro" to 35029 and SMSes cost R3 each.

The City Awards were founded in 2017 when the first annual "035 Awards" were held in KwaZulu-Natal after the locals noticed the lack of appreciation for individuals in the music industry. After a favourable response and support from the locals, the company decided to branch out and do this also in  other cities.

The company’s vision is to provide award shows that develop, empower and elevate the entertainment industry.

The Awards broadcast will be held on 5 June 2021 at 18h00. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, all award shows will be broadcast live on the City Awards website (www.cityawards.co.za/live).

Nomination submissions opened on 5 January and nominations can be done online on www.cityawards.co.za/Nominations. They close on 5 March.

Prizes up for grabs include a stunning 10’’ Glass Award, Marketing Contract as well as a Music Video and Photoshoot.

Voting lines close on 5 June at 15h00 and voting is only done via SMS. Nominees can see where they rank according to votes on the city awards website under the “awards” tab.

Winners are determined by a combination of public votes and judges’ scores depending on the category under consideration. The scores will be verified independently, and winners will be announced during the live broadcast in June.
