image STARTED THIS SMALL: Sandziso ‘Sands’ Matsebula seems to be saying as he recounts his music journey last week Thursday in Sandton L'opulence after being awarded the Gold plaque for his album sales.

THE custodians of music in the country believe Sandzizo ‘Sands’ Matsebula’s Gold status sales of his debut album has succeeded in balancing tradition and modernity, therefore, marking a new era in the music industry.

THE custodians of music in the country believe  Sandzizo ‘Sands’ Matsebula’s Gold status sales of his  debut album has succeeded in balancing tradition and modernity, therefore, marking a new era in the music industry.

The Swaziland Arts and Music Association (SWAMA) under the presidency of Lutfo Dlamini, takes pride in the developments that have been brought forth by the status Sands now ranks in, in South Africa and the whole of Africa.

Dlamini said; “indeed Swaziland has come of age and proving that our artists and our Siswati language are capable of reaching any heights.”

These statements were sparked by Sands being awarded a Gold Plaque last week Thursday in Sandton, Johannesburg, for  reaching 25 000 in terms of album sales.

 Dlamini said  in the not so distant  future, SWAMA will be signing an MoU with the South African Music Council.

“It will be another historic milestone as we will be partnering with the best in South Africa,” he said.

Matsebula’s debut album ‘Sands of Time’ has been reportedly flying off the shelves since its release, hence sales compilations prove that it has reached Gold.

According to his Manager Phila Dlamini, otherwise known as Phila Koshini, the presentation also worked well for them as they utilised it to officially introduce Sands to all South African media and promoters.

The event was attended by SA’s A-listers from Vuzu Tv representatives to Mtv presenters and, amongst all, the vibrant Anele Mdoda, Sjula Dlamini and Joyous Celebration’s Nomzamo ‘Zamo’ Dlamini.

Phila Koshini said the objective of the event was met as Sands performance had the audience eating form the palm of his hands and many requested for more.

“It goes without saying that we can safely say Swaziland has great talent from artists to producers,” he said.

During his speech, the main man Sands thanked all who had supported him and the men in his team.

From the producer Sabelo ‘Subjams’ Sithungo to his Road Manager Lusolotja Ginindza and the band, he has been working with this team for the past eight years.
