First the premature announcement of the SABC Summer Song of the Year competition winner caused an upset, now it has come to light that 18 000 votes weren't counted. The majority of these votes were apparently for King Monada.
Yet another scandal surrounding the SABC Summer Song of the Year competition is causing upset.
According to a report by SowetanLIVE, a total of 18 000 votes were excluded from the final results - and most of them were for King Monada, the man who brought us the hit song, Malwedhe.
Obviously, these votes could change the outcome and ultimately who actually won the competition, between Master KG, Prince Kaybee, and King Monada.
As it stands now, Master KG is the competition winner.
The votes, which were cast on the Ukhozi FM line, were reportedly withheld by the SABC's sales department.
This news follows a previous uproar that was caused by the premature announcement of the winner by Thobela FM DJs, DJ Boeli Alpheus Mailula and DJ Kwenisto Makwena M, who were removed from the air shortly after.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Mzansi was convinced the competition was rigged, and this new development will just fuel suspicions.
The SABC is apparently looking into the claim.
There are rumours that the Limpopo Artist Movement and King Monada's team want to have the results annulled and the uncounted votes taken into consideration.
