Mufasa stopped submitting his music for considering at the awards after his hit track, Doc Shebelez, was not nominated for Song of the Year back in 2015. However after a long debate with his team last year, Cassper decided he did not need a SAMA to prove his worth as an artist.

He stood firm to his decision two months ago, even though award organisers tried to twist his arm into changing his mind.

Strangely enough, when this year's nominees for Best Live Audio Visual Recording was announced last night, Mufasa's name was on the list for his concert, #FillUpOrlandoStadium.

Mzansi fans were very confused about his nomination and wondered if the rapper went back on his decision. They immediately took to his social media account, Twitter to ask Musfasa if he backtracked on his decision.

But Cassper later cleared the confusion, saying it must have been the organisers involved in the project who must have submitted for the category.

Cassper also added that he wasn't bothered by all the questions on his Twitter page.

Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi rapper, Cassper Nyovest, had made a dream come true for a young and upcoming rapper whose Twitter name is Mass the Difference.

While social media has both its advantages and disadvantages, Twitter has been doing great synchronising musicians and their fans. It's helped open the communication gap between celebrities and their fans.

Most aspiring rappers use the platform to share video clips of them performing in the hopes it will raise an eyebrow or two of people with influence who could help them break into the entertainment industry.

Cassper Nyovest is one of those people who keep an eye out for aspiring talent. He spotted this boy rapping, retweeted him and promised to sign him.
