Mthandazo Gatya excited about bagging 2 nominations at the Metro FM Awards 2024


Mthandazo Gatya is filled with excitement as he scores two nominations at the Metro FM Music Awards 2024.

He is nominated in the Best RnB category alongside Filah Lah Lah, Nanette & Blxckie, Tyla and Nontokozo Mkhize.

Mthandazo is also nominated in the Best Music Video category alongside De Mthuda & Da Muziqal Chef, Tyla, Kamo Mphela, as well as Bassie & Aymos.

The musician whose cover of John Legend’s song catalysed him to the spotlight spoke to TshishaLIVE about his music career and the nomination.

“Getting nominated means so much, this is the second year in a row. I got nominated in two categories just as I was last year. I am happy and this says that there’s something that I’m doing right that people are loving and recognising,” he told the publication.

“What inspired me to sample the song was the love for it, it’s one of those love songs that we used to play when we were boys, it helped us a lot with the ladies.

“In every song that I work on, I have to love it first and ideas will just flow for me to come up with melodies and ideas. It was one of those classics that I felt needed a bit of an African touch and it worked out perfectly. People are loving it and I’m happy to see it go this far.”

Mthandazo says he is happy, though not comfortable yet.

“I’m very patient with the process and happy with everything I’ve achieved. I’m not comfortable but I’m happy. Working with John Legend has had a huge effect. I’m recognised globally, so many doors have opened. I’m working with more artists from abroad which has always been a dream.”

“I have a juice brand named JuiSic, a combination of my love for music and juice since I don’t drink, I wanted to come up with a brand that best describes me but that will also cater for everyone. For those who drink alcohol we have flavas that blend well with all kinds of alcohol, whiskeys, cognac, vodka.”
