The Ghoema Awards has become the biggest celebration of Afrikaans music – a platform where the very best Afrikaans artists are celebrated and awarded for their impressive music over the past year. On the 23rd April 2017 the sixth awards took place at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park and, as always, it was full of glitz, glamour and good music.
Earl Swartz, best known as Early B, won the inaugral Hip Hop category for best hip-hop single. He received the award for the track, ‘Bene Lam’and was also nominated for a second track, ‘Cerebellum’. The Ghoema Awards aims to honour and support the most talented artists within the Afrikaans music industry.

Congratulations on the win it's a big step for the Afrikaans HipHop movement and we wish him all of the best for his future endevours.
