MK Awards in its 7th year

Between 10 and 25 January the public had the chance to nominate their favourites in the MK Awards’ new categories for the Best Live and Best SA Music Festival.

The MK Awards finale event will be held at The State Theatre in Pretoria on the 24th of March so we reckon it is time to touch up on your local music knowledge.

Voting is now open and will end 12:00 on 8th of March.

To vote, head on to or you can vote on Facebook.
