The group will represent the province at the national finals to be held in Harare.
Matabeleland South provincial arts manager Nokuthula Moyo expressed confidence in Motor Super Sounds.
“This group is the Bhekumuzi Luthuli of Matabeleland South,” he said.
Moyo thanked the Matabeleland South community for coming to the competitions in their large numbers.
“On 10 to 12 October we will have the Rainbow Province Arts Festival where artistes would showcase their talent. It is my hope that people will again come in their large numbers,” said Moyo.
The competitions saw the second prize of $500 going to Macray Super Sounds which came out with 130 points while Zonda Mthakathi Band of Maphisa came third with 110 points and was awarded $300 cash.
