As his plans to feature South African multi-award winning artiste Cassper Nyovest go on, that certainly isn’t the only thing King Illest looks forward to, as the Tonga Trap pioneer also looks forward to scooping the awards for the two categories he’s been nominated in for the Kwacha Music Awards 2018.

The award show has received so much backlash in last few weeks from both fans and artistes such that celebrities like Mampi, Jay Rox and Chef 187 pulled out, but King Illest has backed the awards.
