Multi-award winning and platinum selling artist Donald has added yet other accolade to his already impressive list of nominations, receiving multiple nominations in the popular All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) and African Magazine Muzik Awards (AFRIMMA).
The Rain Drops hit-maker has been nominated in the highly anticipated African Fan Favourite category for the AFRIMA’s to be held in Nigeria later this year. For the AFRIMMA’s taking place in Dallas, Texas, this October, Donald received two nominations, Best Southern Male and Video of the Year for his feature in Victoria Kimani’s Fade Away. These nominations follow Donald’s delivery of Africa’s first-ever visual album titled Something More. The 10-track album features collaborations with Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage, Saso from Hip-Hop trio Dreamteam and rising star Floda. The visuals are also star-studded with cameos by Masechaba Ndlovu, Bontle Modiselle, Abdul Khoza and Didie Makobane.
Donald is one of Africa’s most talented, top-selling artists and over the years, his brand has shown growth, consistency, longevity and evolution. Commenting on his nominations Donald says: “I’m extremely excited about these nominations, it’s really a great step in the right direction and going continental. Africa is finally taking notice and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Africa.”
In August 2017 the BET nominated R&B and House superstar was announced as the new in-house mentor for the popular Idols SA. Watched by millions every Sunday on Mzansi Magic, Donald says being part of Idols SA is definitely one of his major career highlights.“I feel like I’ve been working towards this moment all these years. It’s a big deal for me and it couldn’t have come at a better time in my career. It is definitely one of many amazing things to come,” says the muso.
Donald’s Something More visual is currently available on all online music platforms including iTunes, Tidal and Google Play and all 10 visuals are available on VEVO. To vote for Donald online for both the AFRIMA and AFRIMMA, visit AFRIMA and AFRIMMA respectively.
