"The #womeninreggaemovement is a collective of women who are passionate about or advocates for issues related to women in society. Specifically non-gender-based violence, women's rights, diversity, and inclusion". Spearheaded by the Mzansi Roots Reggae matriarch Sista Phumi Maduna, this movement has been working tirelessly in giving much-needed support and guidance to the upcoming and well-established artists in the reggae scene where women still have to fight tooth and nail for recognition in the male-dominated industry. As a way to celebrate and honor these incredible artists, they will be performing at the 5th annual Sawubona Music Jam Awards.

The Sawubona Music Jam, held at 2199 Musingandi Street Chiawelo, Soweto, Founded by Lucky Thobela in 2012, has become a hotspot for musicians and live music lovers. Their weekly event called "Magic Tuesdays" is a favorite among music enthusiasts, providing a platform for talented artists to showcase their skills.

It promises to be an electrifying night filled with incredible live performances.
