Mpumalanga-born gospel singer Prudence Noxolo Mkhize, who performs as Minister Prudence, has been nominated for an Ingoma Award.

The artist’s second release, “Siyabonga”, has been nominated for Best Worship Album at this year’s Ingoma Awards. The awards winners will be announced at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on August 31.

“I feel extremely proud of myself. I feel very honoured to be part of the 11th Ingoma awards nominees. I find this a very big opportunity for me to showcase my talent and get more exposure with regards to my new single,” she said.

She added that there is a lot of work she still needs to put in with regard to getting votes.

“I feel positive about my outcome on the 31st of August, hence I have already started campaigning for votes,” she added.

She has urged her fans to help her bring the award home to Tshwane by sending an SMS BWA02 to 33745. Voting lines close on August 11.

She said the inspiration for her song came from all the pain and sufferings she has been through in the past.

“The song is here to give hope to the hopeless. People need to be reminded that God is still here. He has never shifted regardless of whatever situation they might be going through.”

She said her music journey started in July 2021, and the influence of her music transpired in the church where she worships, Gospel Runners Prophetic Ministry, and through her ministry of healing souls through praise and worship.

“My genre of music is focused on both traditional and international gospel, and my inspiration comes directly from the likes of the late Sifiso Ncwane, Nontsikelelo Hlomela, Sipho Ngwenya, and many more international gospel artists like Sinach,” she added.

Her new song, “Siyabonga”, is available on all digital music platforms.
