Nomfundo Moh receives gold and platinum plaques for her singles on the ‘Amagama’ album

Written by on 24 May, 2023

Nomfundo was presented yet again with multi-song plaque at the Universal Music Group (UMG) offices. Her five singles – Izibusiso, Kuhle, Nginjena, Sibaningi and Umthwalo have all been certified of gold status. This, while her debut album Amagama and songs – Lilizela, Ngam’khetha have gone platinum.

The plaque race is led by her two hit songs though; Phakade Lami and Soft Life which have topped with six-times and three-times platinum status.

Speaking on how this achievement means to her, she says, “This is a green light assuring me that the future is bright. I shall keep on doing more timeless music and heal people.”

From being conferred with a bachelor’s degree in social work at the University of KwaZulu-Natal to having Soft Life going platinum and being presented the music plaque at her graduation, things have been looking up for her.

In her previous interview with Drum, she relived what she called “an amazing day”.

“I already planned that on stage I was going to sing the song ‘Soft Life’ and then let my colleagues back up my singing because I know we always support each other. So, when the song played without me knowing, that was a surprise. I began to see things from a different perspective that ‘these people are truly happy for me’ and it was them singing and rejoicing with me.”

“When I was still excited about that, as I walked off stage and then here is a double platinum plaque for Phakade Lami. I couldn’t stop crying, I am such a cry-baby, I was never ready especially because the song went gold maybe about two months ago. So, I was still happy about that and on to that. For me to go double platinum right now, it was just a double blessing and having everyone around me,” she added.

Award-winning music star Nomfundo Moh continues to heal people through her music, visuals, and lyrics- this album seeks to be an echo and reflection of that. Last year, the 22-year-old joined DBN Gogo as the second South African artist chosen to be part of the platform’s flagship programme that amplifies the voices of talented African women.
