- Nadia Nakai believes that her latest album titled Nadia Naked should have been nominated for this year's SAMAs
- The rapper took to social media to express that the awards don't mean anything to her
- The stunner said she knows for sure that her album is good and deserved to be nominated in the Best Hip Hop Album category
Nadia Nakai is not a happy rapper. The stunner took to social media to vent about being snubbed for this year's South African Music Awards (SAMAs) nominations.
The 40 Bars hitmaker took to Twitter on Wednesday, 15 July to complain about being overlooked by the SAMAs even though she had a "good" hip-hop album.
The #SAMA26 Best Hip-Hop Album nominees are Youngsta CPT for 3T, Younga Chief for Becoming A Popstar, DJ Sliqe for his album Inja Yam Vol 2, K.O for PTYUNLTD and Big Zulu for his album titled Ungqongqoshe Wongqongqoshe.
When one tweep asked Nadia if she had submitted her album titled Nadia Naked to be considered for a nomination, she said:
"Babes I did... It’s definitely the last time I’m doing that sh*t though! On God."
The star, who recently signed to Def Jam Africa, said the SAMAs don't mean anything to her.
"Listen, I know my album is good... I’ve been around too long to know that these awards don’t really mean sh*t... Imma keep moving... always."
Nadia has in the past won three awards, two from the South African Hip Hop Awards and one from Afrimma.
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi rapper Zakwe has reportedly hinted that he is quitting vernac rap. The KwaZulu-Natal-based star, who raps mostly in Zulu, wants to spit strictly in English from now on.
The move by the musician is aimed at gaining more fans in order to reach his first gold status in his 10 years in the music industry. Zakwe is currently working on a new album after his last project titled Cebisa.
He expressed how he desperately wanted the album to go gold. It consisted of the hit track Sebentini, in which he featured Cassper Nyovest. Zakwe will from now on be quitting vernac rap and go strictly English. The likes of Nasty C - who is also from KZN - spits most of his lyrics, if not all, in English.
