Khuzani to Address Mzansi Over Song of the Year Controversy

Ukhozi FM Song of the Year Results Spark Debate

As in years past, Ukhozi FM’s announcement of its annual Song of the Year sparked division among music fans. Culture commentator Phil Mphela reported on social media platform X that Khuzani’s gqom song “Umjolo Lowo” secured the top spot with 993,667 votes.

Maskandi artist Mthandeni SK’s “Paris” came in second with over 746k votes. Mphela shared the full top 10, noting he would offer considered commentary the next day.

Fans quickly aired views on the results on social media. Some expressed disappointment that maskandi didn’t claim number one. Others highlighted that one’s favourite doesn’t win if they didn’t vote.

This prompted debate around Khuzani performing immediately after the announcement, fueling claims of rigged numbers. One user jokingly suggested an investigation was needed.

Most agreed “iPlan” or “Paris” deserved the top spot. Khuzani has promised an live address to discuss issues stemming from the controversy.

Reports state he was booed off stage at Gumba Festival days later as the crowd pelted him with objects while encouraging singing along to his winning song.

The SABC has denied rigging allegations surrounding the highly debated Song of the Year decision stirring intense reaction across industry and fans.
