- The nominations for best hip-hop album for the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) has been announced
- Mzansi social media users were not really convinced with the list of nominees and complained in the comments
- Fans were confused about why Cassper Nyovest hasn't made the final cut to be nominated for a SAMA
The South African Music Awards (SAMAs) have released their nominations and this includes the hip-hop category. A lot of impressive albums were released last year, so the competition was obviously going to be tough, but fans were not expecting the list that they saw.
The 27th edition of the award ceremony is highly anticipated and the nominations are not really what was expected. The nominations for the best hip-hop album went to Boity, Yanga Chief, Nadia Nakai, Nasty C and Zakwe & Duncan.
To say that Mzansi social media users were confused is an understatement because fans were shocked about who had been nominated. Cassper Nyovest released his top album Any Minute Now in 2020 and his name hasn't made it to the list this time.
