Nandi Madida noted that Zakes Bantwini lost his father last month, stating that it was a very difficult period for him. Him winning the Grammy, was proof that he had gained a very powerful ancestor, following his victorious win at the 65th Grammy Awards.

Congrats for winning your first Grammy!"

Fellow celebrities have been congratulating Zakes Bantwini and tagging Nandi in the posts for playing an active role in the advancement of his career.

Zakes won the Grammy for Bayethe which features Nomcebo Zikode and Wouter Kellerman. She remains in awe over her success as a young woman who hails from Hammarsdale in KwaZulu-Natal.

"Look at God!!! From Hammarsdale to the world! I never imagined that God would take me to such heights and platforms! I want to give a special shoutout to @wouterkellerman, @tholsi_pillay, @zakesbantwini and @sibo_the_zulu @fraserselwyn for thinking of me when putting this record together, we did it!"

"Last but not least I want to thank each and everyone who has supported me and my career since day one, I love each of you and dedicate this win to you!" she closed off.

Zakes Bantwini said it took him 15 years to finally reach Grammy-award winning status, and it was worth it, "Took me 15 years to find my path. "I stayed true to myself & my dreams, despite all the hardships that presented themselves. I have no words to express the emotions and grace that have come over me. This moment is owed to my late Mother & Father. Your efforts, sacrifices & lessons you handed down brought out the very best in me. I’m grateful…"
