Music, they say is a universal language and if the elements of composition are right, it knows no boundaries. The ‘melodies killer‘ KD Bakes deserves a pat on his back as he bagged five nominations in the maiden edition of Ghana Music Awards South Africa.

KD Bakes, who has signed to a South African record label BKS Recordz, has redefined the journey of a budding artiste upon joining the label earlier this year.

Basically, the “Carry Me Away” crooner is musically having a good year - from winning “StandOut Artiste Of The Moment” award to “Youth Event Awards– (nominee)” and now the maiden Ghana Music Awards South Africa.

KD Bakes is nominated in the following categories:

* South African Based Artiste Of The Year
* South African Based Music Video Of The Year
* New Artiste Of The Year
* South African Based Hiplife Artiste Of The Year
* Best Highlife Artiste Of The Year



Ghana Music Awards South Africa is the major yearly music festival of the Ghanaian community based in South Africa. The aim is to celebrate and award individuals and corporate excellence within the entertainment industry amongst the Ghanaian Community in South Africa.

KD Bakes' “Carry Me Away” video has hit 79,000 views on YouTube and he hopes to release a new banger by month ending dubbed “Run Go”.
