Singing in the Rain: South Africa’s New Year’s Eve Music Extravaganza Defied Weather

South Africa bid farewell to 2023 and welcomed 2024 with a musical bang on New Year’s Eve, as music lovers defied the rain to fill up venues across the country.

Notable among the celebrations was the Fact Durban Rocks event, hosted by DJ Tira, which attracted a vibrant crowd eager to dance the night away.

Despite the rain, the love for music proved unstoppable as people embraced the joyous atmosphere at various events.

The Gumba festival in Richards Bay also added to the musical frenzy, creating unforgettable moment’s music lovers.

One of the night’s highlights was the anticipated announcement of the Song of the Year. However, this moment wasn’t without its fair share of controversies.

Predictions were rife as to whether “iParis” by Mthandeni ft Lwa Ndlunkulu or “iPlan” by Dlala Thukzin would clinch the coveted title, given their popularity.

Some voices raised questions about the integrity of the selection process. Allegations of a rigged system and concerns that popularity doesn’t always translate to votes surfaced within the music community. Despite the controversies, artists found solace in the unwavering support of their fan base.

“Andile Msomi, stated, ‘South Africa is a country that is united by music, and we celebrate our musicians.’ Nomusa Mkhize, however, expressed skepticism about the voting process, ‘Next year, I am not voting because it’s no use. I think they are making money through us.'”

One artist stood victorious. Khuzani, with his song “uMjolo Lowo,” emerged as the Song of the Year winner on uKhozi fm. Grateful for the support he received, Khuzani expressed his appreciation to his followers, highlighting the crucial role they play in his success.
