Major League DJz is a popular deejay duo from South Africa that consists of twin brothers Bandile and Banele Mbere. The Mbere brothers have successfully made a name for themselves in the music industry. This is through their diversified and distinctive style of deejaying.
Bandile and Banele were born in Boston, Massachussetts in the United States of America. This is one of the reasons one could say they associate themselves with their music and its variety.
Internationally acclaimed, the amapiano duo is recognised in the ‘Best International Act’. This is from the list of nominees announced on June 1.
The Mbere’s are the only South African artists that have been nominated at the awards. Which is fitting given the groundbreaking year they’ve had in pioneering the amapiano movement. The twins took to their social media platforms about how excited they are to announce the news to their fans.
They also expressed that they will not only attend the award ceremony that will be taking place on June 26. But they are also be nominees at the event.

Reacting to the nominations, the Major League Djz announced, “Mommy your boys are nominated for a BET award. Piano to the world.” Earlier in the year, they were also nominated at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, so who is to say that this isn’t a landmark year for the brothers. Furthermore, with the South African Music Awards (Samas) nomination party being held in Joburg one week from now, they will also be confident enough to bag a few nominations there.
The amapiano stars are selected in the Best international act category alongside Little Simz and Dave from the UK, Ludmilla from Brazil, Tayc and Dinos from France, Fally Ipupa from the DRC, and Nigerian stars Tems and Fireboy DML. Should they win the award, the twin Djz will join Sho Madjozi, Sjava and Dj Black Coffee who are some of the South African talents to have won the Best New International Act accolade.
