Former Radio-DUT presenter Dawud Phungula was awarded with the Best Social Media Initiative on Saturday at the KZN Young Achievers Awards.

Phungula got the award for his fast growing YouTube channel Dawud TV which has over 12 000 suscribers. Dawud TV is a vernacular entertainment channel that covers celebrity news, event updates, celebrity interviews and vlogs.

Dawud says his journey with YouTube started in 2016 where he had his first YouTube channel which did well but was terminated due to copyright infringement.

β€œI started a new channel and it was hard for me to start afresh and create the same content and gain followers all over again,” said Dawud.

He says things changed for him when he found his new target audience which are African IsiZulu speaking people.

Dawud got his first award back in 2015 for the best radio presenter at the Radio Al Ansaar Awards, third one for Best Radio initiative in 2017 at the KZN Young Achievers Awards, and this one makes it his fourth award! We can therefore declare him as a multi-award winning artist.

This victory means more growth for Dawud and his channel, β€œIt is a motivation to continue working very hard, continue delivering more lit content and to be consistent in the game,” he added.
