GOSPEL artist Sibonelo Zaca has been nominated for the Live Your Dream Youth Awards, set to take place at the Durban Playhouse on November 24. He was nominated in the Best Upcoming Artist category for his song Hambanam.

In order to win the award, Zaca has asked the community of Harry Gwala Distinct and beyond to vote for him by SMSing LYD 123 to 45633.

“To win the award, I have asked people to vote for me through radio interviews, social media, events and churches,” he said.

Zaca released his first album, Hambanam, which consists of 10 tracks, in May this year. His songs have been performed during local events and at churches.

The 25-year-old from the Mnyamaneni village in Bulwer said he started singing under a music group, Stars of God, which was formed in Bulwer by eight men in 2008. He said his gift of singing was first identified when he sang at church.

“This is the first time I’m entering any competition and I am praying to win. My ambition is to have my own studio for young artists to produce songs,” he said, adding that he will be releasing his second album next year.

He said he sang gospel music as a way of spreading the word of God.
