Cassper Nyovest has continued to blast the SAMAs after his artist Nadia Nakai was not nominated in the Best Hip Hop Album category.
The Amademoni hitmaker has advised artists who were snubbed by the SAMAs to rather focus on winning new fans than taking home new awards.
"My advice to everyone who didn't get nominated and feels cheated: a strong fan base is way more valuable than a full cabinet. They love you when you are new and then they find a replacement when you dominate too much."
Mzansi stars including Matorokisi hitmaker Makhadzi, Nadia and R&B sensation Ayanda Jiya have all taken to social media to complain about not being nominated for this year's ceremony.

Mufasa, who feels that Nadia deserved a nomination, emphasised that musicians don't need recognition from the SAMAs in order to succeed in the industry.
"You actually don't but artists hurt cause they work hard and I feel their pain cause they took away a moment from me that I could never get back. I then decided I would show them I would make it without the SAMAs and look at me today."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Prince Kaybee has been accused of buying nominations and he couldn't help but laugh it off.
The club DJ scooped an impressive nine SAMA nominations. The music producer feels super proud for being nominated for Record of the Year (ROTY) and Music Video of the Year (MVOTY) for his two lit tracks Fetch Your Life, featuring Msaki, and Gugulethu, featuring Afro Brothers, Indlovukazi and Supta.
Prince Kaybee responded to a few shade-throwers on social media in the hopes of sarcastically calming their nerve. When one tweep asked Kaybee why he responded to the trolls, he replied:
"I’m helping them get over their pain."
