The late Neyi Zimu’s son, Muzi Zimu and Dr Neli Zimu receiving a tribute award from Dan Raseluma at Ingoma Awards.
Neyi’s son and his wife, Dr Neli Zimu, attended the event and received the Tribute Award.
At the awards, gospel singer Dumi Mkokstad won big, scooping the Album of the Year award.
Speaking about his award, he said: “I’m truly humbled by this award. This is my first Ingoma Award and it means a lot to me. At this point in time I feel I have to thank my manager, Mxolisi Mhlongo, and everybody who supports my music journey.”
“I believe we all had a chance to win but grace chose me this year. I also know that I stand to win another huge award at the SABC Crown Gospel Awards and I am crossing my fingers. I am hoping that people will vote for me,” he said.
Ingoma event organiser Dan Raseluma said: “We are happy to have hosted this event despite challenges. At some point we had to postpone the event due to Covid-19. We were even thinking of doing it virtually, but fortunately the country moved to level 1, which allowed us to host 250 people. As a result only the nominees and invited guests attended this event.”
