The first month of the year is almost over and peeps will only now be treated to the reveal of the Song of the Year for 2019.

The track was never aired after the SABC got taken on by Mo Production which accused the broadcaster of stealing its concept.

There was an agreement between the company and the SABC but it got terminated and Owen Ndlovu of MO Productions accused the SABC of using their voting system but not compensating them for it.

According to Zalebs, MO Productions was also responsible for running the New Year's Eve Song of the Year chart for Ukhozi FM in particular.

One can only wonder what peeps will have to say once the Song of the Year is finally announced.
