South African dancer Musa Motha says he feels like he failed after he did not win Britain’s Got Talent. However, he is celebrating after he recently bagged the Emerging Artist Award at the National Dance Awards.

Musa achieved the show’s first-ever group Golden Buzzer that saw him go through to the semifinals of this year’s competition.

Taking to his Instagram timeline on Monday, he shared a snap of himself receiving the accolade and reflected on how he felt after he did not win the competition.

“In life we focus more on the future and don’t realise we are in the middle of what we prayed for. Just last night I was avoiding to check my socials because I felt like I have failed the world by not winning the Britain’s Got Talent, even not making it to the top 3/2, but then I have realised how blessed I am to have reach so many hearts and my mission is complete.

“Thank you to Britain’s Got Talent for the opportunity. And guess what? Today we won an award for the Emerging Artist. Thank you National Dance Awards for this beautiful award and recognition,” he wrote.

His mentions were filled with people expressing how proud they were of his achievement.

“You won the hearts of the world over. A priceless opportunity that surpasses the title. You are a legend, ntwana. You made history, broke boundaries and set a world record,” wrote Aaron Moloisi.

“You won our hearts moons ago, you’re beyond legendary,” Bontle Modiselle commented.

Ahead of the finale Musa’s mentor Gregory Maqoma told Sowetan he was proud of the dancer’s journey so far.

“There is no stage bigger than Britain’s Got Talent. As his mentor, I’ve always worked towards making sure he achieved his goals. It was critical for me in our planning to make sure it happens as we moved forward,” said Maqoma.

“Seeing him on that stage means a lot to me and I know it is his time to shine.”
