The manager of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, which has won a fifth Grammy Award with their album-Shaka Zulu Revisited, has called the latest winning an honour.

Xolani Majozi has congratulated the group and describes the achievement of the group as a great success to the African continent.

The announcement was made on Monday morning in the United States of America. The group won under the Best World Music category.

Majozi says the South African flag is still flying high in the music industry.

“It is quite a great honour for LBM to achieve and win this fifth Grammy Award. It is not a success for the group but for the entire South Africa and the continent. LBM is continuing to fly the flag of South Africa high and also promoting the culture and heritage of the isicathamiya music. We congratulate the founder of the group Prof. Joseph Shabalala for leading the group and also making sure that it represents the indigenous music and African culture,” says Majozi.
