‘I was at Enyokeni Royal Palace last month when the king recognised me and presented me with an ox for the good work that I have done for the community and respect that I have shown him.
‘I am very humbled that the king shook hands with me,’ said Nkwanyana.‘The king and amakhosi were chosen by

God to lead us. It is important to respect them. I hope young people like me will follow in my footsteps.’ Nkwanyana has contributed significantly to help the community, especially the youth, and has played a huge role in bringing peace within the maskandi music industry. He was at the forefront during the peace negotiations when two maskandi musicians were up against each other.
‘I also played a significant role in youth development through boxing and host soccer tournaments every year to encourage young people to participate in sports and to keep them off the streets,’ he said.
