Zimbabwean songstress Sha Sha is over the moon after she walked away with the Viewers Choice Best New International Act at the prestigious 2020 BET awards.
She beat out Rema from Nigeria, Celeste and Young T & Bugsey from the UK, and Hatik and Sracy from France. The award is decided by fans.
Accepting the award, Sha Sha thanked her fans for their support and dedicated the award to those who had always stood by her.
One of the first to congratulate Sha Sha on her award was last year’s winner, SA rapper Sho Madjozi.
“Sha Sha, congratulations. It’s one of the best feelings in the world,” Sho wrote.
Sho was nominated in the Best International Act category at this year’s awards but lost out to Burna Boy.
She was disappointed but promised fans she would push on and make a big announcement on Tuesday.
