The hiphop artist known for his distinct gravelly voice scooped six gongs at the recent South African Music Awards (Samas) earlier this year. In April he also said “I do” to his long-time sweetheart Yolanda Mvelase.
After walking away with the Best Collaboration Album‚ Samro’s Highest Airplay of the Year‚ Sampra Highest Airplay of the Year‚ Best Rap Album‚ Best Male Artist of the Year and Best Album of the Year for his Dakar II album and hit single ’Ngud at the Samas, Kwesta is cementing his place as one of Mzansi’s most sought-after music stars. But the role he enjoys most is being a newlywed and loving father to his baby girl Khai.
