The Zikomo Africa Awards recognize individuals and organizations that make positive contributions and achieve success in various fields, such as art and entrepreneurship.
The leader of the group, Solly Phahlamohlaka, said that their main goal in creating a dance team in ekasi was to help their friends find passion, live off their talent and avoid bad streets.
According to Phahlamohlaka, their efforts are beginning to bear fruit as their abilities are recognized outside the country.
“As local boys who just make a living using our talents and doing what we love. No words could truly describe what it felt like to attend the awards show.
“When our name was called, we stood on the platform, realizing that our efforts were finally paying off.
“One of the reasons we believe we won this award is the passion, sacrifice and discipline we have shown throughout our work.
“Receiving an award gave us more benefits than just winning.
