Rapper Moozlie has taken to social media to slam Mzansi artists who have been complaining about being snubbed by the SAMAs.
This year's SAMAs nominations have ruffled feathers of some of the country's biggest stars who had been dominating music charts and keeping Mzansi on the dance floors with their smash hits.
Moozlie took to Twitter to criticise artists who find the SAMAs "legit" when they are winning them but drag them when they are not.
"Awards are legit when you’re winning them and cap when you’re not. Why?"
A tweep, @Sakhilezakes_SA told Moozlie that some snubs don't actually makes sense at all.
"It's not even about capping it's about how this whole selection thing goes about because some snubs are absolutely unbelievable. For instance, how you leave out Jerusalema and Matorokisi like how? Does it even make sense, huh?"
The stunner admitted that Master KG's song Jerusalema and Makhadzi's Matorokisi are still "magic".
"I hear you my dog. Those songs are still magic though. Trophy and some PR won’t change that."
In other news related to the awards, Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper 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.
Mzansi stars including 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 emphasised that musicians don't need recognition from the SAMAs in order to succeed in the industry.
"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."
