Like every other year, the Song Of The Year which is set by listeners altogether radio stations causes a stir on social media and conversations around tribalism occur. Yearly, Ukhozi FM gets lambasted by many of us for less than showing support to KZN artists. Winning the SOTY title was Khuzani for his hit song Ijele which scooped a powerful 957 950 Votes.
