MDA the Thornhill village boy is making it big to the SABC Crown Gospel Awards, the biggest platform ever for gospel music in South Africa.

MDA is the second artist in history of the Crown Gospel awards to be nominated from Cape Town, the awards will be held at the Durban ICC on November 15.

asked what this nomination meant to him, the young, vibrant MDA said:

“This is not about me or anyone I work with, it’s also not about what I know but God, I’m just a happy and willing vessel of God that ministers through gospel and hip hop music and I know that God is on our side and his favour is upon us; that is the reason why the ministry has been elevated to gain recognition in this magnitude”.

“Cape Town has been in a dry season for a while and the time for our own artists to be recognized is now and when the window of favour has opened, as the bible says in Psalms 90:17 - May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands. That then means nobody can stand against what God said”, he chuckled
