A LOCAL gospel artist, Ayanda Ntanzi, is appealing for votes from the public in the 15th Metro FM Music Awards in the Best Urban Gospel category.

The awards will take place in Durban at Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on 27 February.

The 23-year-old is known for giving the Life Bible Church worshippers goose bumps with her singing.

His first 12-track album Udumo (Worship) saw him being chosen as one of the nominees.

Ntanzi was born in Appelsbosch, finally moving to Durban then to Pietermaritzburg.

“I’m currently a Pietermaritzburg citizen who is proud to be part of it. To me this nomination came as a surprise.

Being chosen for such huge awards is a blessing from God. It shows that people are recognising my work. I thank God for the opportunity he has given me and for that I will forever be thankful.

“I’m just a baby in the music industry and with this nomination I feel really honoured. Music has been my life. My family is a family of musicians and that is where the love came from.

“I use to sing when I was young, but I realised my talent and passion as I grew up,” said Ntanzi.

Ntanzi will be fighting for the title against Ntokozo Mbambo, Andile ka Majola, Malusi Mbokazi and Worship House.

When asked how he felt to be nominated, he said:

“I couldn’t believe it. We are talking about the Metro Awards, one of the biggest annual events. I felt honoured and acknowledged. It is not all up to me to return with the award, it’s also up to the people of Pietermaritzburg to make sure the award comes home.

I’m appealing for their votes. Their voting will make us all winners. It’s the people of KZN and Pietermaritzburg who can make that happen. There is talent in Pietermaritzburg­,” said Ntanzi.
