Mr Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that the icon singer and producer Sello "Chicco" Twala was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 12th annual Metro FM Music Awards that took place in Durban on Saturday, 23 February 2013;
2) believes that Chicco Twala is a hardworking and versatile musician, who deserves to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for his immense contribution to the music industry, with his career in music spanning three decades;
3) recognises that his name has over the years become synonymous with hit songs, and that it was not surprising therefore that the younger audience enjoyed and sang along with hands raised in praise of his stunning performance of some of his classic songs at the Metro FM awards ceremony;
4) recalls that Chicco Twala has produced and worked with so many musicians on various projects and still continues to do so much for the music industry, such as setting up a music studio in Soweto to unearth young talent; and
5) congratulates him on receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award and wishes him success in his future endeavours.
