Zimbabwean maskandi muso, Mxolisi Mavundla's  video titled Amakhosi taken from his latest album Kobandayo has been nominated for video of the year in this year's South African Traditional Music Awards SATMA Awards 2013.

Mxolisi Mavundla, better known for his role as organiser and vocalist for history-making Imbube group Inkanyezi Zezulu Stars, has just finished shooting a DVD for his debut solo album, "Kobandayo".

Inkanyezi Zezulu made history when they landed a rare recording deal with a South African company and came second in the South African Traditional Music Awards two years ago.

Mavundla, 32, still a member of the traditional accappela music group but working under the name Zinjaziyamluma, penned his own piece of history when he became the first Zimbabwean to team up with the neighbouring country's celebrated Maskandi-gospel queen, Bonakele, in his explosive debut maskandi beat album.

He said the DVD was a follow-up to the success of the sizzling album, notable for its high quality sound and content.

"The album has been very successful with both Zimbabweans and South African fans asking for a DVD. So this shoot is a response to the public pleas that keep coming," said the Tsholotsho-born Mavundla.

"I have shot all 10 songs in the album and promise that I will also feature Bonakele in all the tracks that she sang."

Mavundla was born 1982 in Tsholotsho. He attended Dongwe Primary School and Dinyane High School, he played soccer and loved dance, especially Imbube.

Zinja Ziyamluma has found himself a comfortable home in Maskandi music. He says he admires artists such as the late Bhekumuzi Luthuli, Mgqumeni Khumalo, Khangelani Mhlongo, Jeys marabini and Bonakele.
