The 2023 Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Music has named Palesa Nomthandazo Phumelele Modiga as its winner.

The awards honor up-and-coming local performers in the fields of jazz, dance, visual art, music, theater, and performance art who have shown exceptional talent.

The award, according to the performer, singer, and songwriter, is an incredible honor.

Modiga continues by saying that she was considering her future in the music industry at the time of this recognition.

For me personally, the latter half of 2023 has been such a lovely time for milestones. When I consider how the year started, there was a time when I felt like I was going through an existential crisis and trying to determine whether my actions had any impact, influence, or significance for people.

Most of us first met Modiga in 2016 when she was a contestant on” The Voice South Africa.”

She has since released two studio albums,” Yellow: The Novel” and” Inganekwane,” in 2017 and 2020, respectively.

The news that Modiga will release a new album in 2024 will make her fans happy.

My goal is to reflect the human experience and the times, which will always be a recurring theme in everything I do.
