LOS ANGELES - Award winning music group Mafikizolo will find out tonight if they will win a BET Award to add to the other honours they've picked up this past year.

The awards will take place in Los Angeles and the duo is up for best international act against four other groups.

Dressed in their trade mark African colours Mafikizolo told Eyewitness News they were more nervous to perform for an American audience yesterday than they are for today's ceremony.

"We don't want to get into the American market and do what they do, we want to be original." The group's Nhlanhla said.

"We feel good and we're grateful to have the opportunity." The group's Theo said.

The awards will be broadcast in South Africa on Tuesday night at 10 pm.
